Elias Elhardt Wins Relentless Big Air Stuttgart 2011
With clear domination, and outstanding performance in the superfinal, Elias Elhardt won the 5 Star Relentless Big Air Stuttgart. Victor de le Rue grabbed second place and third place went to current TTR Big Air World Tour leader Roope Tonteri.
With wind and snow issues in the morning, the 2011 Relentless Big Air Stuttgart had a rocky start. Hurricane Joachim created quite a stir, canceling Friday's training session and causing the organization to seal off the event site.
The crew in Stuttgart was faced with the challenge to prepare ideal conditions for today's competition, but as the winds calmed the contest took off and presented thousands of spectators some top notch snowboarding.
"It's obviously super cool to win in your home country, the crowd went wild. It's both the first and last contest for me this season, as I will concentrate on filming. Therefore it couldn't have been a better day," says favorite Elias Elhardt, who won the contest with his Frontside 360 Stalefish - Frontside Boardslide run for style, and a Frontside 900 Melon - 270 Frontside Boardslide on his technical run.
Another 5Star TTR Big Air contest wrapped up, Roope Tonteri is still solidly leading the TTR Big Air World Tour Ranking. German Ethan Morgan moved up into the Big Air second place. There were no changes in the overall ranking results - Roope Tonteri is still ranked 3rd.
