Beijing, CHINA – January 15th, 2012 – In his third appearance at the event, Finnish rider Juuso Laivisto today claimed his second first-place finish at China’s TTR 5Star 10th Red Bull Nanshan Open. “It’s been awesome to see how the event has grown the last few years, and to see such legends in the judging booth made it extra special to win here today!” Juuso said as he celebrated his win.
With the aforementioned judges including Michi Albin, Ingemar Bachman and Scotty Wittlake in charge of narrowing yesterday’s 12 top-ranked riders down to four for the afternoon’s Super Finals, the level of riding was significantly elevated from the qualification round as riders gave their all for promises of fame, glory and of course TTR points and prize money! After two runs each, USA’s Sam Hulbert would enter the Super Finals ranked first, followed by Juuso Laivisto, Roope Tonteri (FIN) and Teddy Koo (KOR).
Juuso Laivisto clinched first place on his second run, going huge with back-to-back bs900 mutes, followed by a 50-50 to method on the polejam, bs lipslide on the downrail finishing off in style with a tweaked out fs360 nosebonk on the Red Bull cube. Roope Tonteri (FIN) unfortunately was unable to stomp what could have been a first place run, landing a cab900 indy but reverting out on his impressive bs1260 mute attempt – still finishing his run off in style with a switch boardslide 270out on the polejam and a lipslide 270out on the downrail, enough for third place. Sam Hulbert took second with a bs720 to fs1080 on the kickers and was the only rider to hit the jib section’s oversized-pipe with a 50-50 to bs360 out.
With the snowboarding side of the trip now over, riders will now be focusing on getting their voices in tune for tonight’s KTV-party session and once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Great Wall – Zaijian and Ganbei!
