When: January 9-16, 2010
Where: Laax, Switzerland
For the 11th edition, the BEO are putting on a real show - a Circus show to be specific. To start things off, they sent the Juniors in the manege today to battle it out for the slopestyle finals.
In the girls division, 12-year-old Ty Walker from the US claimed her 2nd junior slopestyle BEO title with a run consisting of a frontside boardslide on the box, followed by a nosegrab off the up rail, a frontside stall on the jib tube, a 50-50 on the box, backside 540 indy on the quarterpipe and a frontside 360, a backside 360 and a method air on the kicker line.
The boys were owned by Laax local David Hablützel, who impressed with a nosepress nosegrab on the box, a method air off the up rail, a rock-n-roll to fakie on the jib tube, a 50-50 nosepress on the downbox, followed by a backside 540 truckdriver on the quarter and a backside 540, a switch backside 540 and a frontside 720 truckdriver on the kickers.
