Roope Tonteri is the winner of the Summer Rookie Fest 2010, a Swatch TTR 2-Star slopestyle with riders from 7 nations.
The finals went down on Friday 8 July in the Gentlemen’s Snowpark in Val Senales, Italy, at the end of the first Rookie Camp. It was the inaugural event of the World Rookie Tour 2010/11, which now heads to the southern hemi to Australia for another slopestyle contest, and Chile for the first snowboard freeride youth event ever.
During the Rookie Camp and the slopestyle contest, the two times World Rookie Champion, Roope Tonteri from Finland stomped killer tricks like bs 1260 late cork, cab 1440, double rodeo and double front flip. With such an armory full of tricks, Roope will for sure bag himself many other good results in the next TTR contest, including the Air&Style Rookie Challange 2010 in Innsbruck, Austria, that he's got an invite for after taking the WSF World Rookie Champion 2010 title.
Best grom of the event was Jakub Kral with front 720 and bs 720, while among the girls was Diana Augustinova, both from Czech Republic. Moreover, the program included also a skateboard contest and photo/video shooting with snowboard media.
The World Rookie Tour will now move in the Southern Hemisphere with slopestyle contests in Thredbo, Australia from 28 to 30 July, and a freeride edition in Valle Nevado, Chile from 13 to 23 August.
