Estonian Open Championship ruled by Estonian riders!!!
In perfect winter day more than 70 riders gathered in Kuutsemae, EST for Monster Energy Ride in Baltics Tour`13 Stop6 slopestyle competition! Excellent weather conditions, amazing riding level, perfect park, Estonian champions titles shared between the best ones – thank you all for coming, thank you all for supporting!
Park in Kuutsemäe was the best ever there with 2 big jumps and 3 rail-box obstacles in the slopestyle course. And riders appreciated it throwing difficult tricks over different elements in park. As main organizer Karel Kangro said: “Riding level of all groups was very high! The winning run of Snowboard Men Pro group by Sulev Paalo consisted of tricks like frontflip from the small knockle in the first jump inrun, fs 7 + backside 9 + cab 270 to rail in bottom part”.
In almost all groups Estonian riders were the best this time, so they took the highest place on podium and Estonian champion titles – Johanna Linda Pihlak, Karoliine Holter, Marten Kikas, Kert Talu, Indrek Tamm, Sulev Paalo and Karl Paaru. The only exception was Freeski Juniors group, where Emils Ozolins from Latvia got 1st place.
“AERODIUM Fly High” contest winner this time was young Estonian skier – Artti Aigro, who was jumping over the largest kicker with some sweet bs360 and other tricks!
After great day in park some riders were heading home, but majority stayed for the afterparty!
