GB slopestyle legend Jenny Jones, today took 3rd place at The Oakley Arctic Challenge in Norway. An amazing result for the Brit, who joined a host of the worlds best female slopestyle riders to be the first girls invited to the prestigious event!
The final result looked almost identical to the order that the girls qualified yesterday, with Jamie Anderson yet again proving why she is leading the pack in the current Swatch TTR rankings. Jamie was crowned the winner of The Oakley Arctic Challenge with a run containing a noseslide, a 50-50 bs 180 mute, a huge ss bs 540, bs 360, a tailslide 270 out and a bs 540 indy on the last jump.
The tailslide 270 out gave her a maximum score of 10 on the 5th element. After her impressive riding she can walked away with 15000$ in her pocket, and the honour of being the first ever female rider to win a first prize at the Oakley Arctic Challenge.
“I was never crowned the prom queen, but finally I got my crown”, she commented at the prize ceremony.
The girls didn’t let the side down in their entry at The Oakley Arctic Challenge and proved that they are here to stay. An injury for Thea Stanshagen and a breath taking huck on a bs 360 from Kjersti Buaas kept the audience in suspense, but thankfully there were no major injuries. The audience was treated to solid 720s and a bs 900 attempt showing the technical level of girls riding is on the rise.
