Torah Bright er TTR Champion!

Perfect spring conditions prevailed at Park City as the Slopestyle contest of the 3rd Annual Roxy Chicken Jam became the deciding TTR point-earning event for the women’s Champion title. With one of the most talented rider line-ups of the season, the best-of-4-runs jam session culminated in a 15-woman Final that proved a close-cut challenge for judges to call. After tough deliberation, Slopestyle victory finally went to accomplished rider Tara Dakides (USA) who delivered amongst her best runs a backflip over the kicker, backside rodeo to a clean backside 720, ending with a boardslide-to-fakie on the flat down flat. Jamie Anderson’s (USA) fluidity and impressive rail maneuvers throughout the course earned a second place finish, and take her back to the TTR World Nr 2 spot.

But it was Torah Bright’s clean mix of cab 540s and cab 720s that earned her a 3rd place podium result – and win enough TTR points to extend her Nr 1 lead over last season’s Tour winner, Cheryl Maas (NED) – and secure the 2nd Women’s TTR World Snowboard Tour

Champion 06/07 crown.

In front of a crowd of expectant spectators, Maas (NED) handed over her title and the TTR plaque to a jubilant Bright (AUS). In a shower of champagne Bright (AUS) was bowled over by a throng of media and fans as she celebrated her world title. On her victory, Bright (AUS) stated: ‘Winning the TTR title is amazing – I am absolutely speechless! TTR is just what we need in snowboarding – it’s amazing to have a title that can legitimize the sport and ourselves as authentic athletes. I just wanted to have fun today and was also thrilled since it was the first time I tried and landed a switch frontside 720. I am just so happy today!’

Bright (AUS) joins recently crowned male Shaun White (USA) as the TTR World Tour Champions 06/07.
