Canadian rider, Mark McMorris, and American, Jamie Anderson, took the
first 5Star Slopestyle titles of the 2011/12 TTR World Tour season at
the 
2011 Burton New Zealand Open.  The slopestyle finals went
down at Cardrona Alpine Resort with optimal weather conditions making
for some great riding.  All riders who competed in slopestyle at the New
Zealand Open have all earned ranking points towards both the TTR
Slopestyle Tour Rankings and the TTR Overall Tour Ranking lists.


Jamie Anderson wins first 5Star title of 2011/12 season


The competition was run using a best-of-three-run format with women and men alternating on each run.  The
women took to the course first and it was an immediate battle between
two-time TTR World Tour Champion, Jamie Anderson, and Norwegian
competition queen, Kjersti Buaas.  Jamie held the lead all day and won
with a run that included a switch backside 180 tailtap, a front blunt to
fakie and a half Cab 5-0 to backside 180 on the jib section and a
switch backside 540, frontside 360 and a backside 540 on the jump line. 
Kjersti came in a close second and Jordie Karlinski (USA) took home
third place. 


Mark McMorris beats out some tough competition 


The
men took the last run of the day and Mark McMorris won the title with a
run that consisted of a full Cab stall, Cab 270 frontboard to fakie and
a half Cab to backside 360 in the jib section and a backside double
cork 1080, frontside 900 and ended with a Cab 1260 on the jump line. 
Mark
had this to say about his win, “Today was awesome.  I’m so stoked to be
on the podium with some good friends.  Everybody rode insane and I’m
happy to get a top spot at my first 5Star”.  Fellow Canadian, Sebastien
Toutant
, was right behind Mark in second place and Norweigian
up-and-comer, Stale Sandbech rounded out the podium in third place.


Riders register results for all-new ranking system


With
his win today, Mark McMorris registered his first result of the 2011/12
TTR season and is sitting in the World No.4 position on the TTR
Slopestyle Tour Ranking list. 
Roope Tonteri (FIN), who placed
seventh today and won last week’s 4Star Billabong Slopestyle competition
in addition to grabbing sixth place at the 5Star Billabong Ante Up big
air event, is now the current leader of both the men’s TTR Slopestyle
Tour Ranking and the TTR Overall Tour Ranking.  Jamie Anderson is in the
familiar World No. 1 position on both the women’s TTR Slopestyle and
