Oakley Shaun White Air & Style Beijing – Check the Course with Sage Kotsenburg & Chas Guldemond

Riders arrived in the Beijing's Birds Nest for the Oakley and Shaun White present the Air & Style Beijing 2012. We followed Sage Kotsenburg, Chas Guldemond and the rest of the impressive rider field around the stadium and on their adventures around Beijing. The world´s best snowboarders gathered in Beijing´s Bird´s Nest Olympic stadium today. With most of them returning to this 6Star World Snowboard Tour contest it did not take long for them to get accustomed to the further improved mega ramp, dropping in at 50 meters above stadium ground. Perfect snow and good weather allowed top riders such as Peetu Piroiinen, Seb Toutant, Seppe Smits, and last year´s winner Ulrik Badertscher to go big already in this initial practice session, showing huge backside 1080s. Giving their feedback to the ramp and snow crew will make for even better conditions in the second practice tomorrow and of course for the contest on Saturday, where for the third time the Oakley and Shaun White present Air & Style Beijing 2012 Champion will be crowned. Last year´s champion Ulrik Badertscher had a good day of practice. Here are his impressions: "First day of practice was really good. The setup is great, a special thanks to the construction crew for making it possible. I am stoked to be back and I'll try to go for a back to back win this year even though my competitors are really pushing it." For the first time all 24 riders will start in a head-to-head competition from round 1 on. 12 winners and 4 lucky losers will advance to round 2 and battle their way through to the Super Final of 4 riders. 1,000 World Snowboard Tour points, the dragon share of the 100,000 US-Dollar prize purse and the Ring Of Glory are waiting for the winner.

Chas Guldemond back in TTR tour lead after the Stylewars

The 4Star Oakley Stylewars did not only push snowboarding to another level but also had a major impact on the 08/09 Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour Rankings with tour veterans, young guns, and south-hemi up and comers all throwing down enormous maneuvers, staking their claims for the title early on. Chas Guldemond (USA), who recently lost the Tour Lead in New Zealand, claimed back the World No. 1 spot. Leading the charge was a man on a mission, last year's grand master Torstein Horgmo (NOR) who was sending massive smooth tricks with rarely a hand out of place. He took out best trick with an insane switch backside 1260 melon deep into the landing of the first jump and climbed 22 positions up the Swatch TTR rankings into World No. 30. The overall winner of the event was Canadian Charles Reid who dominated for the entire three days of the grueling event that included today. With his victory and 500 Swatch TTR ranking points, Charles claims his first TTR title ever and moves up 9 ranks to World No. 7. A slew of 1080's, rodeos and a consistent style had him pushing out fellow Canadian Matts Kulisek for the win. In the end, Kulisek finished 3rd behind Horgmo.
