Snowboarding Queen Enni Rukajärvi Claims Victory At Pleasure Jam
Enni Rukajärvi and Elias Elhardt displayed their expertise at the 2010 4Star Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam. Each rider took home 500 Swatch TTR Ranking Points and a healthy slice of the $20,000 USD prize purse.
The 2010 4Star Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam kicked off on a perfect day with men’s and women’s slopestyle semi-final rounds. German snowboarding master, Elias Elhardt, dominated his competition and won the event for the second time in a row.
TTR Tour Champion, Enni Rukajärvi, was also victorious and the Pleasure Jam launched her into the women’s TTR World Ranking lead.
As TTR World No.1, Enni Rukajärvi is in an excellent place right before the height of the Northern Hemisphere winter, which kicks off in January. Rukajärvi executed every trick in her final run flawlessly, pulling off a huge Cab 540, frontside 360 and a backside 540.
Rukajärvi was thrilled with the results of the day and is looking forward to the upcoming season.
“I plan to ride all the 6Star and some of the 5Star TTR events, so that I get the seven results I need,” said Rukajärvi
Rounding out the podium were up-and-coming riders, British Aimee Fuller in second place and 16-year old Katarzyna Rusin in third place, both now in the TTR Top 30.
Elias Elhardt has been working his way into the spotlight on the TTR tour and won today’s event with his easy style Cab 540, backside 1080 double cork, frontside 900 and a Cab 180 rock to 360 out on the wallride.
With this first solid TTR result Elias earned himself a Top 50 spot in the TTR World Rankings. Finnish ripper, Ville Paumola, grabbed second place with some technical runs and Tor Lundström took third place.
Gjermund Braaten ended up in sixth place at the 4Star Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam, but despite the event results, he will maintain the World No.1 position in the TTR Ranking.
