The 16th annual freestyle.ch Zurich was a hit despite the weather. 28,000 freestyle fans gathered at the Landiwiese to cheer on their freestyle superstars.
The battle between up and coming Gjermund Bråten (NOR) and Sebastien Toutant (CAN) for victory in the snowboard final was hard fought. Both performed flawless double cork 1260°s, a trick rarely seen until now at in-city Big Air events. In the end, current TTR tour leader, Gjermund Bråten, pulled of a more pristine trick execution. Finnish snowboard superstar Peetu Piiroinen finishes 3rd.
Swiss hopeful, Iouri Podladtchikov, came within a fraction of getting into the final, but wasn't able to achieve the precision he had so convincingly displayed during training.
