The Bros Ain't Pros Slopestyle

by Sarah4. February 2012 10:08

As the powder began to fall there was a slight possibility the event may have needed to be postponed. After a few practice hits, the general consensus amongst the organisers, judges and riders was to go ahead with the competition. No sooner than they made this decision the snow stopped falling. This meant there was enough speed to hit the jumps with a softer landing, adding another little incentive to pull some epic tricks out of their bags.

In the men's open ski category Kieran Nikula and Jarred Martin were hot on each others heels but in the end Jarred was flip'n to win and took out 1st place. The men's open snowboard was also close but Brad Reids frontside 720 rodeo off Showcase put him out on top.

The overall results were as follows:

Junior Ski:
1.    Dawson Freeze
2.    Kaden Hendry
3.    Jordan Goodall

Girls Open Ski:
1.    Casandra Ratcliffe
2.    Jenna Anderson

Men's Open Ski:
1.    Jarred Martin
2.    Kieran Nikula
3.    Stu Sykes

Junior Snowboard:
1.    Jared Wilman
2.    Jake Bells
3.    Jeremy Sale

Girls Open Snowboard:
1.    Hayley Petznick
2.    Zuzy Rocka

Men's Open Board:
1.    Brad Reid
2.    Geremy Guido
3.    Dom Oshanek

There were prizes awarded for other categories as well; the ‘Huckin It’ award was thrown to Justin Siray, ‘Best 540’ was awarded to Lance Machain and Myall Lucas took a HUGE fall and walked away with the ‘Best Bail’ prize!

This by the riders for the rider’s event was such a success that by the end of the day there were plans to organise another one!

For more photos head to our Facebook page and for the current standing on the “No Bail Peace Prize” check out the Terrain Park updates page. The Garden Rail Jam on Sunday 12th of February will be the final freestyle event in the series and the lucky winners will walk away with the cash prize!

See you at the Gardens!
