Shared By: Snowboarding.com | March 07, 2013
Sarka Pancochova (CZE) takes World Snowboard Tour Overall and Slopestyle trophies home.
''I have been working really hard this season, training and competing, it's the best reward to be the World's top woman overall snowboarder, then all the hard work pays off!''
Sarka showed consistency throughout her season in both Slopestyle and Halfpipe, coming second at the X Games Slopestyle contest in Aspen. Though not many female riders compete in both Slopestyle and Halfpipe regularly, Sarka did beat competitors like second placed Enni Rukajärvi (FIN), third placed Silvia Mittermüller (GER) and last year's Champion Cilka Sadar (SLO), who came in fourth this year.
After his Burton US Open results, Peetu is currently ranked number one on the World Snowboard Tour Overall rankings. But with one more Halfpipe contest to go, it will be an exciting battle between Peetu and Stale Sandbech in Norway next week, as the current Champion is not willing to give up his title so easily.''I was one point short of winning the Big Air Championship this season, which was a pity. I have been working really hard and I want to get the Overall title, it's a great honor.'' Said Stale Sandbech.
