Snowboarding - 07. March 2013.

Kelly Clark isthe 2013 World Snowboard Tour Halfpipe Champion

Under perfect conditions in Vail, Colorado today, last year’s Champion Kelly Clark (USA)  won the World Snowboard Tour Halfpipe Championship title. Kelly  has been the most consistent Halfpipe female  rider of the 2012-2013 season, landing on the podium at every 6Star contest they entered.

Kelly dominated today’s contest right from the start, grabbing the win with her first run; A Frontside 1080 Indy Grab into a Cab 720 Mute followed by a Lien Air, Backside 540 Mute Fronside 720 Stalefish grab, working every inch of the Halfpipe.
This was Kelly’s 61st win in a Halfpipe contest, an absolute world record. It is her 3rd World Snowboard Tour title, and her second consecutive in the Halfpipe category.

‘’It is always a great feeling to be awarded, even if it is the 61st time… All the girls riding pipe, like Hannah and Arielle and I today, will continue to push the sport. It’s great to be the Halfpipe champion, I didn’t win all the contests this year but I won the right ones and it was enough to get me the title.”


Sarka Pancochova (CZE) takes World Snowboard Tour Overall and Slopestyle trophies home

’’I have been working really hard this season, training and competing, it’s the best reward to be the World’s top woman overall snowboarder, then all the hard work pays off!’’
Sarka showed consistency throughout her season in both Slopestyle and Halfpipe, coming second at the X Games Slopestyle contest in Aspen. Though not many female riders compete in both Slopestyle and Halfpipe regularly, Sarka did beat competitors like second placed Enni Rukajärvi (FIN), third placed Silvia Mittermüller (GER) and last year’s Champion Cilka Sadar (SLO), who came in fourth this year.
