With the Euro leg of the Roxy Chicken Jam cancelled this season, The Artic Challenge decided to have a girls comp again for 2011 and like most of the contests she attends, Jamie Anderson took it by storm.
She ruled the slopestyle course with her signature style and is now in an excellent position to take the 2010/11 Swatch TTR World Tour title after her win in Oslo. She won with a run including a noseslide, 50-50 to backside 180, a huge switch backside 540, backside 360, tailslide to 270 out and ended her run with a stylish backside 540. Behind Jamie was Canadian Spencer O’Brien, who put down a very smooth run as well and British rider Jenny Jones honed her veteran skills on the slopestyle course to take third place.
In the TTR World Tour Rankings Switzerland’s Sina Candrian protected her World No. 3 spot, while local rider Kjersti Buaas (NOR), improved to World No. 4 and Channelle Sladics (USA) remains in World No. 6. These ladies will have a tough time unseating Jamie Anderson out of the tour lead, but they will be giving their all at the 6Star Burton US Open for a TTR Top 3 finish.
