The TTR SWatch Tour touched down in Crans Montana for the Champs Open Europe’s most established boarding competition which draws the finest riders from our continent and beyond. This year’s 5* TTR Slope-Style event was held on the 8th Feb 08, the park set up was truly amazing and saw Billy Neilson, Jack Shackleton and Sam Cullum repping for the UK and competing against some of Europe’s best snowboarders.
With his baby blue outfit, Swiss rider Anthony Holland came close to a podium position, doing well enough to earn 4th, Fellow compatriats Stefan Maurer and Gian Simmen pushed hard coming 3rd and 2nd respectively, and the winner is…………………. Jaako Ruha of Finland who absolutely dominated proceedings, stomping a huge 1080 over the swatch hip, then following that up with a perfect rodeo 540, his hits through the pipe weren’t too shady either, with super huge airs, stylish grabs, corked spins and soft landings the verdict was never in doubt ….. JAAKO RUHA Champ.
A star of in the making burned brightly in the shape of Alex Evoquoz
