World Snowboarding Championships Quarterpipe Finals – Gittler, Hanson and Terje Haakonsen

The World Snowboarding Championships is in full swing in Oslo, Norway where the quarterpipe event went off at the Holmenkollen Ski Jump stadium tonight. The competition featured a unique format that awarded riders for three different categories: best overall rider, highest air and best trick. Riders were reaching speeds of over 70 km/h on the in-run to the 10.5-meter quaterpipe. It was French rider Oliver Gittler who took the overall victory, Norwegian Kim Rune Hansen won best trick and Terje Haakonsen claimed the highest air of the night. The contest kicked off with a semi-final round where a field of 20 riders was knocked down to 8 finalists who had five runs with the best three counting towards the overall title. Judges were looking at a combination of amplitude and style and Oliver Gittler's consistent and large McTwists earned him $30,000 USD for the overall best rider of the night. Norwegian rider, Kim Rune Hansen, took second place overall with some nicely controlled huge backside airs, but impressed the crowd and the judges with his double backside rodeo to take the best trick award and $15,000 USD. And, it was snowboarding legend, Terje Haakonsen, who claimed the $20,000 USD for the lofty 7.7-meter method he threw down on the quaterpipe.
