TTR Burton Canadian Open 2011 – Teaser

The third annual TTR 5Star Burton Canadian Open 2011 presented by MINI is geared up and ready to rock the Winsport Canada’s Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, Alberta all this week. The snowboard competition officially kicks off with qualifiers on Tuesday, February 1st with halfpipe finals taking place Friday, February 4th and slopestyle finals going down on Saturday, February 5th. Riders will be going after a slice of the $50,000 USD prize purse and a maximum of 850 TTR ranking points. The competition season is moving quickly and the Canadian Open is a major stop for riders going after a top spot in the Swatch TTR World Tour rankings before the 6Star Burton US Open where the TTR Tour Champions will be crowned in March.With the 6Star Billabong Air & Style event happening the same weekend, many of the current TTR Top 10 male competitors are in Austria, but the Canadian Open rider list is still chock full of talent. Chas Guldemond (USA) will be in attendance and will be one to look out for on the slopestyle course. Chas has been making some major moves in the Swatch TTR rankings over the past month with a podium at the 6Star Burton European Open and will be looking to climb higher in the TTR Top 20. And, current TTR World No. 2, Christian Haller (SUI), has the opportunity to take the tour lead if he can nail down good results in both slopestyle and halfpipe. Christian has been having a stellar season so far with a first place in the halfpipe at the 5Star Burton New Zealand Open and he also took his first 6Star title of his career in the halfpipe at the O’Neill Evolution. On the women’s side, the competition is going to be fierce with top talent in both halfpipe and slopestyle disciplines slated to attend. Kelly Clark (USA), current World No. 13, just landed the first-ever 1080 in a women’s halfpipe competition last weekend at the XGames and will definitely be bringing her top game to Canada.

TTR O’Neill Evolution 2011 – Full Halfpipe Wrap Up

http://www.ttrworldtour.com - Local Davos hero Christian Haller and American halfpipe star Kelly Clark took top honours at the O'Neill Evolution Halfpipe finals in a spectacular day of snowboarding action.It was a close fought final in the 6Star TTR Men's competition with the top three on the podium -- an all Swiss affair of Christian Haller, Iouri Podladtchikov and Jan Scherrer -- exchanging the lead after each heat. It was Christian however who took the final victory and the $15,000 prize money after his third heat run with a score of 87.45 for a run of a Backside 540 Melon, Frontside 1080 Tail, Cab 1080 Nose and Frontside 900 Mute. "I'm feeling great. I wouldn't have expected it -- honestly!" he said. "I grew up in Davos and I grew up riding this pipe so it makes it even more speical than a normal win," said Christian. "It's also a really good feeling to be on top with two of my best buddies."Last year's winner Iouri Podladtchikov had been leading after his second run of a Cab 720, Frontside Crippler, Backside Double McTwist 1260 and a Frontside 1080 Tail. "I was thinking that I could have made it two wins in two years after landing my trick. But it feels great to have Christian in front of me. Of course it hurts a bit. But it's Christian. If it was someone else I would probably be more pissed right now."The surprise of the day came from the 16 year old Swiss rider Jan Scherrer who finished third after leading at the end of the first heat. "I was so surprised," said Jan who goes to school here in Davos. "It's such a huge result for me!"The Women's event saw a different show with Kelly Clark dominating throughout -- and the crowd gathered at the bottom of the Jakobshorn loving every move."I've never been here before," said Kelly. "But it's great. Having another first place let alone at a 6star is just great!"The 27 year old American continues to push women's riding, her second run consisting of a Frontside 900, Backside 540 Mute, Frontside 720, Indy and Cab 720 Mute. "The sport is progressing and I just feel honoured ...
