And she did it again – turning anything she enters into gold, slopestyle queen Jamie Anderson from California bagged yet another title at the TTR 5 star Roxy Snow Pro in Saalbach Hinterglemm last Friday!
It was a tight one, though, and could have ended very differently if Cheryl Maas from the Netherlands had fully stomped her back 9s. Sadly for her despite trying her best in the finals she couldn’t quite land them and still took second place, while the massive grin of stoked rising star from UK Aimee Fuller scored third place with backside rodeos and cab 5 underflips in the Night Park, bumping her up into the top 5 off the current TTR ranking!
But it wasn’t only the moon- and floodlight night finals that elated the crowds, the semi finals held in a jam session style had some bangers in store too. You could witness 5s and 7s in all directions from almost all of the girls, some pretty steezy cab 5s from Sina Candrian and Aimee loosing her monopoly on rodeos with Isabel Derungssticking a nice one too.
This was mainly down to the fact that the course was shaped especially for the girls, with the jumps big enough to showcase their skills but not super-sized scary. Something the Roxy events have always been focused on since the beginning of their existence: this is for the girls!
And so instead of Xboxes and Playstations the chill out lounge was equipped with hot chocolate for free, the latest Roxy gear for everyone to check out and a whole wall of Essence cosmetics, plus corresponding make-up artists to apply them to the happy faces of spectators, riders – and media (as you can see in the party pics below).
The only downside of this event has to be that the after party couldn’t nearly compare to the legendary happenings of former Chicken Jam – but with the World Snowboard Championships starting a day later this probably shouldn’t be overrated. We’ll come back next year to see how this development will commence…
