Burton New Zealand Open

FIRST MAJOR EVENT ON THE 2009/2010 SWATCH TTR WORLD TOUR Burton New Zealand Open Provides Early Season Opportunity for Riders to earn TTR Points

The 2009/2010 Swatch TTR World Tour is officially underway with the first major event of the Southern Hemisphere leg will take place next week. The 5Star Burton New Zealand Open kicks off at Cardrona Alpine Resort on Tuesday, August 11th 2009 where riders will be greeted with a 22-foot pipe and a world-class slopestyle course giving competitors two opportunities to lock in a 2009/2010 Swatch TTR Ranking result.


The Burton New Zealand Open has served as the major TTR Tour kick-off event for the past four years and is a perfect opportunity for riders to get a jumpstart heading into the Northern Hemisphere winter. With 850 Swatch TTR Ranking points and a $50,000 USD prize purse up for the taking, riders from around the globe will be looking to secure a piece.

2008/2009 Swatch TTR World Champion, Peetu Piroinen (FIN), recently confirmed his attendance at the event and will be defending his World No. 1 position from the likes of World No. 2 Chas Guldemond (USA), World No. 3 Antti Autti (FIN) and World No. 6 Charles Reid (CAN). The tight-knight Frends crew, all of which are ranked in the Top 30 on the TTR Tour, will also be upping the ante at this year’s New Zealand Open with Danny Davis, Luke Mitrani, Jack Mitrani and Mason Aguirre all slated to make an appearance.

The women’s side of the competition field is stacked with some heavy Swatch TTR Tour competitors including 2008/2009 TTR World Champion and current World No. 1 Kelly Clark (USA) who will definitely be a standout in the 22-foot pipe. Current World No. 3, Jamie Anderson (USA), is back at the New Zealand Open looking to clinch her second-consecutive Slopestyle title. Norwegian rider and current World No. 2, Lisa Wiik, turned some heads last season on the tour and is sure to be a force at the event. European Top 10 TTR riders, Silvia Mittermueller (GER) and Sarka Pancochova (CZE) are all due to be present in New Zealand making for some strong competition.

The Burton New Zealand halfpipe finals will take place on Friday, August 14th and slopestyle finals on Saturday, August 15th 2009. All semi-finals and finals.

After the Burton New Zealand Open wraps up, the Southern Hemisphere leg of the Swatch TTR will continue in Australia with the 4Star Stylewars and the 3Star Boost Mobile Sno Sho. The Tour will return to New Zealand for the 3Star Billabong BroDown before turning to the Northern Hemisphere, which is only a short time away.

Oakley Arctic Challenge



Established in 1999, The Oakley Arctic Challenge was created as an independent alternative to more established snowboarding events.
The Oakley Arctic Challenge is owned by the legendary snowboarder Terje Haakonsen. Having developed and invested in The Oakley Arctic Challenge, Terje fullfils the childhood dream of all snowboarders and paves the way for the upcoming talents and progression of the sport.
The event protects some key values; independence, creativity, progression, borderless, playfulness, social and environmental responsibilities.

The first full on competition was held in 2000 in the North of Norway, since then it has gathered the best snowboarders on the planet to come together for this very special event. It has also seen global TV and media coverage explode (TV distribution to more approx 200 countries), there are over 100 journalists and photographers on site every year and the event gets more than 300 news stories in Norway alone annually . TV-channels as BBC, Nippon TV, MTV, Eurosport, CNN and Fox Sports have visited and/or covered the event.

The Arctic Challenge was ranked as the best snowboard event in the world in Onboard Magazine's reader poll 2004 and got highest score in the TTR World Tour rider survey in 2008 together with German event Air&Style.

Oakley has backed the event since 1999, and have stepped up their commitment by becoming the title sponsor from 2007. In 2008 they entered a 3 year agreement with TAC; backing their plans to expand with more competition formats.
The 2009 event will take place in Linderudkollen, Oslo. Be there!

LE O’NEILL EVOLUTION REVIENT EN FORCE POUR 2008

Warmond, Hollande, 20 Septembre 2007 – O’Neill Europe est fier d'annoncer le retour du SIX (6) ETOILES O’NEILL EVOLUTION pour la saison 2007/2008 du Swatch Ticket To Ride (TTR) World Snowboard Tour. Après le retentissant succès de la première édition du O’Neill Evolution en 2007, l'épreuve est fin prête à faire son grand retour à Davos (Suisse) du 2 au 7 Janvier 2008.
Ce rendez vous reste l'une des seules six épreuves TTR Hommes qui peut se prévaloir du maximum d'étoiles, (6), du circuit TTR.
Avec des points précieux en jeu pour le classement et un prize money total qui atteint les 100,000 US$, les meilleurs snowboardeurs freestyle au monde convergeront une nouvelle fois vers le Jakobshorn pour assurer le spectacle dans un format Jam session de folie sur le Superpipe et le Quarterpipe. Alors quel rideur sera le mieux placé pour décrocher le chèque de 15,000 US$ du vainqueur ?
Et bien, les rideurs automatiquement invités seront ceux du top 10 au classement Swatch TTR Hommes 2006/07. On retrouvera donc Shaun White et la machine à rotations finlandaise Antti Autti qui est aussi le tenant du titre de ce O'Neill Evolution. Seront également conviés Travis Rice, Kevin Pearce, Danny Davis et Scotty Lago – des rideurs qui se sont particulièrement illustrés lors de la première édition.
Le reste du top 10 fournira également des clients sérieux à l'image des rideurs US Mason Aguirre et du Suisso-Russe Iouri Podladtchikov. Antti Autti, Janne Korpi et Henning Marthinsen ont déjà confirmé leur présence à Davos. Nous serons en mesure très bientôt d'annoncer plus de rideurs du top 10 ayant confirmés leur participation.

Les organisateurs ont également le plaisir d'annoncer la participation de la wildcard et tenant du titre en Quarterpipe Nicolas Mueller. Mueller qui ne manque jamais une occasion de briller devant ses compatriotes devra se battre pour conserver sa couronne face à trois autres wild cards et aux deux leaders du classement Swatch TTR Hommes de la mi décembre.
Avec des qualifications ouvertes à 120 rideurs, cette épreuve attirera également toute la jeune génération du snowboard qui, sans nul doute, tentera tout pour pouvoir se mesurer et battre les meilleurs mondiaux.
Et après les hauteurs incroyables atteintes par des rideurs comme la légende du snowboard Terje Haakonsen pendant la première édition du O’Neill Evolution, les Highest Air Sessions seront de nouveaux intégrées à l'épreuve, ce qui permettra au vainqueur des Highest Air sessions en Quarterpipe et en Superpipe de repartir respectivement avec 6,000 US$ et 3,000 US$.
Avec une telle réunion de stars, beaucoup de points au classement et de gros chèques à la clé, le O’Neill Evolution 2008 sera une épreuve à ne manquer sous aucun prétexte.

Si vous ne pouvez pas vous rendre à Davos à ces dates, vous pourrez tout de même suivre toute la compétition en direct à la TV et sur Internet: www.oneilltv.com.
