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.
