This is the second season that there is a Women’s TTR World Snowboard Tour in place which represents the most progressive freestyle events in women’s snowboarding. Not only do women have their very own dedicated tour, they also have their own contests, their own women’s ranking list presented by Swatch and a women’s event calendar!
On the TTR website, www.ttrworldtour.com, you can find all that and much more, including female rider profiles, current and accumulated career stats, the career titles, sponsors and the current placement in the women’s TTR ranking list. Each time a female rider takes part in a TTR format she receives TTR ranking points and the ranking gets updated instantly.
The women’s TTR ranking list is a necessary organizational tool that ensures that female pro snowboarding keeps growing, as it provides structure to the community. The TTR ranking list enables everybody to follow the rookie-to-pro structure in a very transparent way.
On the website you can get information about the current TTR World No.1 – 16-year-old Jamie Anderson (USA). Winning the Roxy Chicken Jam in Kaprun, Austria from 15-17 December let her step on the TTR podium. Her victorious run in the O’Neill Evolution Superpipe in Davos, Switzerland from 2-7 January enabled her to further increase her ranking margin. Now she’s been in the TTR World No.1 spot for five weeks. Last season’s TTR World Tour Champion Cheryl Maas (NED) is current TTR World Tour No.2, followed by Sina Candrian (SUI). So it is going to be really exciting to follow their neck-and-neck race.
Will Jamie Anderson (USA) manage to guard her pole position to the end? Will last seasons TTR World Tour Champion Cheryl Maas (NED) manage to overtake Anderson and be the leading female snowboarder worldwide once again? And who will be in the Top Ten…? The only thing we know for sure is that there is thrilling tour drama in store. The girls will rock and give their very best high-performance snowboarding action.
