With the Burton US Open spectacle ending last weekend, it is now time for the women to shine at the decisive 6-Star Roxy Chicken Jam. The globe’s top female shredders are presently waxing their boards at Mammoth Mountain, California, in anticipation of the final contest of the Women’s TTR World Tour, kicking off from March 28-30th, 2008.
In a Slopestyle and Superpipe grand finale, the Roxy Chicken Jam offers a 25% point bonus, giving a whopping 1250 points to each winner, ultimately crowning the women’s TTR Tour Champion. The total prize purse for the has risen to $40,000, with the TTR chucking in another $110,000 for a grand total of $150,000 to be shared amongst the Women’s TTR Top 5.
Last year’s tour champion, Torah Bright (AUS), will attempt to hold her tour lead and claim her second successive TTR tour title, as she fends off tough competition from TTR No.2 Jamie Anderson (USA), No.3 Kelly Clark (USA) and No.4 Jenny Jones (GBR). All four riders have been shuffling in the TTR Top 5 since the last Roxy Chicken Jam in Kaprun, Austria, with each taking their turn on the top podium spot. But their season-long efforts will culminate in the decider this weekend, as there are currently only 30 TTR ranking points between TTR No.1 and No.4, making this final bout incredibly tight.
