5Star Billabong Ante Up Big Air 2010 In Whistler, Canada
The Billabong Ante Up in Whistler, Canada marks the start of the 2010/2011 Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour. The world's best snowboarders are off to Whistler to start collecting TTR points.
The 5Star event offers a $50,000 prize purse and 850 Swatch TTR points. Plus, the first place snowboarder at the Ante Up will be automatically invited to the legendary 6Star Billabong Air & Style Innsbruck.
Although the event is only one day of competition, the organizers have built in a five-day holding period to ensure the riders have optimal weather conditions.
Included among the 40 invited riders at the Ante Up will be Seb Toutant, Marko Grilc, Torstein Horgmo, Scotty Lago, Chas Guldemond, and Charles Reid.
Many riders attending the 2010 Ante Up, especially those like Chas Guldemond, Mark McMorris, Marko Grilc, Gjermund Braaten and others, who finished in the 09/10 TTR Top 25 will have the opportunity to set themselves up nicely in the 10/11 points race.
A good result at the Billabong Ante Up in Whistler, Canada combined with their 09/10 season-end bonus points will result in a healthy padding leading into the big picture of the 2010/11 season.
