Burton US Open: Slopestyle finals – Sebastien Toutant & Jamie Anderson

The TTR Slopestyle Tour drew to a spectacular close as four of the worlds best snowboarding athletes faced off at the 6Star Burton US Open in Stratton.

Going into the competition Jamie anderson and Roope Tonteri led the Slopestyle tour rankings but after an uncharacteristic result Roope didn't qualify for the finals. Jamie Anderson had the lead, but spencer obrien was hot on her heels and a big result here was all she needed.

As the womens got under way Spencer O'brien only had to place one spot above jamie to take the Title.

After already losing out on one title to spencer this season Jamie threw down an amazing second run, scoring 90.10 points.

Spencer had one last chance to take it but luck wasn't on her side and she couldn't improve on jamies score.

The mens slope style tour battle came down to two riders – Chas Guldemond and Sebastien Toutant.

Seb was the underdog, needing to beat Chas by 4 places to claim the trophy. After washing out on his first two runs Seb stepped it up and scored an amazing 92 points, putting him into first place.

Reality hit as chas felt his title hopes begin to disappear. He had to go big.

All looked good until the second hit. Chas went down and with him went his chance at a title for another season.

With the TTR Halfpipe World Tour champions yet to be decided all eyes are on the final event of the season, the 6Star Burton US Open Halfpipe.
