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.

TTR Burton European Open 2012 – Slopestyle Final

LAAX/SUI (March 1, 2012) -- Another bluebird day, spring temperatures and an epic Slopestyle course laid the groundwork for one of the Burton European Open's most memorable slopestyle competitions earlier today. Jamie Anderson (USA) successfully defended her title and won the BEO Slopestyle for the second year in a row, while Aleksander Ostreng (NOR) won his first international title today. Both winners took home $15,000 and a world-class title to add to their snowboarding resumes. Jamie's winning run included a backside tailslide on the rail, a frontside 360 to backside 180 on the step-up/step-down combo, a Cab 720 nose grab and switch backside 540 Indy grab on the kickers, finishing off with a backside lipslide to frontside 360 melon. Enni Rukajärvi (FIN) managed to get close to Jamie with a top score of 81.80, ending up in second place followed by a new face on the BEO podium, Swiss rider Isabel Derungs, who took third. Jamie had this to say about her win, "It was the best riding I have ever seen from the girls. I love the new course...it's great for creative runs. I'm so happy that I won because my mom stayed up all night to watch the finals." In the men's final it was Norway's Aleksander Ostreng who claimed the top spot with an incredible third run, including a switch frontside 180 on to 360 out on the rail, a super stylish backside rodeo to Cab rodeo 540 on the step-up/step-down combo, followed by a frontside 1080 nosebone and a huge and super clean backside 1260 melon grab, ending with a Cab 180 on to 270 out to tailblunt 270 out on the MINI Creative Use of Space feature. Alek was overwhelmed and said, "I haven't realized that I won yet. It's a super good feeling being on the podium for the first time in a 6 Star TTR event. I landed everything in the second run, so I tried to step it up in the third, and itworked out!" The Finnish squad followed with last year's BEO winner Roope Tonteri taking second place and Peetu Piiroinen taking third place. Peetu had a theory why the podium was in Northern Europe's hands, "I like the dominance of the Scandinavian and Finnish riders...maybe it's because of the food." Jamie Anderson and Emil Ulsletten (NOR) both took the MINI Creative Use of Space (CUOS) Award and received $5,000 each. With his win today, Aleksander Ostreng moved from 24th place to the top spot of the Slopestyle Burton Global Open Series Ranking, Roope Tonteri is now in second and Sebastien Toutant is in third. On the women's side, Jamie Anderson is of course still leading the BGOS Slopestyle Ranking, with Sina Candrian now close behind her in second and Kjersti Buaas in third. Three-time TTR World Tour winner Peetu Piiroinen made it into the top five of the TTR Overall Ranking with his podium position in Slopestyle today. Stale Sandbech is still leading the Overall rankings. In the Slopestyle rankings, it is still a close race towards the TTR tour final, with many guys hunting for that number one spot. Jamie Anderson has pretty much cemented her first-place position in the Slopestyle ranking, with Kjersti Ostgaard-Buaas now moving up to second place. Sina Candrian made it into the top three today as well. Cilka Sadar is currently leading the Women's Overall Ranking, with Kjersti and Jamie following close in second and third position. The BEO Halfpipe contest on Saturday and the final stop of the TTR World Tour, the Burton US Open in Stratton next week, will determine who claims this year's tour championship titles.
