Emil Ulsletten wins 2012 5 Star Burn River Jump slopestyle

Men's Podium (L-R): Ulrik Badertscher, Emil Ulsletten, Roope Tonteri

Emil Ulsletten is the winner of the 2012 Burn slopestyle contest in Livigno, Italy. Thanks to his great performance the 18 year old Norwegian managed to convince the judges and claimed the slopestyle title of the 6th edition of the Burn River Jump, winning $8,000 in prize-money and valuable points for the TTR ranking list. In front of a huge crowd Emil celebrated his victory along Ulrik Badertscher and Roope Tonteri from Finland.

It was a perfect blue-bird day with great snow conditions up on the mountain as 30 riders from 10 nations competed in finals. The slopestyle course in the Mottolino Swatch Snowpark consists of five obstacles. It starts with two jibbing elements, the “Burn Can” and the “Burton Punching Ball,” succeeded by the kicker-line in the second part: the first kicker (21 m) is followed by a step up (19 m) and gap (9 m), a third kicker (22 m) with a enormous width (16 m) constitutes the ending of the parcours.

All of the riders had three runs, the best one counted. With his third run Emil Ulsletten cut out of the leading position the previous year’s winner Ulrik Badertscher. The young Norwegian started his winning run with a Cab 180 360 off, followed by a Frontside 360, a Switch Backside 1080 over the first kicker, a Cab Double Cork 900 finishing with a Frontside 900. For that performance he earned 93.67 points. Ulrik Badertscher’s run (92.00 points) consisted of a Hardway 360 180 off, Backside Air, Backside 1080, Double Backside Rodeo 900 and a Cab 1080. Roope Tonteri completed the podium (3. with 89.00 points) thanks to a Cab 180 180 Off, Cab 360, Cab 1260, Frontside 720 and a Backside 1260.
