As the season draws to a close The TTR tour travelled to Livigno, Italy for the 5Star Burn River Jump, which featured both slopestyle and the spectacular big air format.With the TTR tour now in full swing some of the best riders in the world were in attendance, including a tour de force of Scandinavian riders, all vying for valuable ranking points.As the Slopestyle contest got under way the Scandinavians began to dominate the park. Their consistency was rewarded as nine out of the ten top spots were held by Scandinavians. 18 year old Norwegian, Emil Ulsletten, threw down a great run and won the first 5star contest of his career.Next up was the spectacular big air event that gives the burn Riverjump its name. Riders had to take a line through two kickers and then a rail section in front of the crazy italian crowd. After a great performance Finnish snowboarder, Roope Tonteri, took the win in a breathtaking super final against Ulrik Badertscher and Mark McMorris. Stale Sandbech, who came in fourth in the Livigno Big Air, still leads the overall rankings before heading off to the penultimate 6Star event of the season, the Burton European Open. The tension will be high at the BEO as riders try grasp some last minute points before the TTR Tour Finale at the Burton US Open in Stratton.
The best shots from an epic past season.
