The Horesefeathers Pleasure Jam brought another amazing win to German ripper Elias Elhardt, who seems to be on fire these days and, like last year, a rather big surprise in the women’s competiton as Finnish rookie Enni Rukajaervi took first place ahead of Cheryl Maas (NED) and Cilka Sadar (SLO). Second in the men’s superfinal was Torgeir Bergrem (NOR), ahead of local Max Weickl and fellow country men Tobias Karlsson (SWE).

After winning the crossover section at freestyle.berlin, Elias Elhardt stood on top of the victory podium once again. Not only could he impress in the main-category but also could he convince the judges for the Best-Trick-Contest with his special Backside 1080 Doublecork and won a trip to the surfers paradise Balicamp! He was really happy about the results: „This was my first TTR World Tour Contest and I would never had counted with taking the first place! Of course, I’m the more happy about it and literally in heaven now!“

The ladies-contest was ruled by Enni Rukajaervi (FIN) who really showed courage and finally convinced the judges with a strong cab 540, a backside 360 and a frontside 360. She commented: “The contest was awesome and the Set-up was just perfect. My style could have been better in my opinion, otherwise I’m satisfied with my performance and the result!”

The international significance of the Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam was underlined by the Czech Sarka Pancochova who overruled the competition by taking the lead of the TTR World-Ranking with a great 4th place on the Dachstein glacier.
