    On the last day of the event the riders competed in two jam sessions lasting one hour each. The first hour was an expression session where riders could focus on single features or combination tricks. The second session the focus was to show creativity, variety, height and technical difficulty in complete runs. Finally the judges concluded on a podium of the top three riders based on combined rankings of both sessions. This year's major profiles in halfpipe would again compete at the top. Danny Davis took home the win after being among the top 3 ranked riders thru both sessions. Iouri Podladtchikov came back strong and won the second session in the contest, but eventually the olympic champion had to settle for second place when both sessions where added together. After solid performances in both sessions the third rider on the podium was the the 18-year-old Australian rider Kent Callister.

      Freestyle snowboarding started with the first halfpipe at Lake Tahoe (USA) 30 years ago. For a long time, the halfpipe was the place for progression in snowboarding. Nowadays, the format has stagnated though. Snowboard legend Terje Haakonson and his team intend to change this now. At the 15th Arctic Challenge in Oslo (NOR) from March 12 to 15, 2014, they want to revolutionize halfpipe riding. Due to its experimental character, the Arctic Challenge will not be ranked as a 6-star event of the World Snowboard Tour this year. Haakonsen continues to work closely together with its organizers though. The field includes many leading riders of the World Snowboard Tour as well as strong newcomers who want to contribute to the progression of halfpipe riding with their fresh ideas and creativity. All riders will get their share of appearance fee and prize money. Confirmed pro riders are Olympic Halfpipe Champion, Iouri Podladtchikov (SUI), Markus Keller (SUI), Arthur Longo (FRA), Danny Davis (USA), Jack Mitrani (USA), Benji Farrow (USA), Scotty Lago (USA), as well as young guns Gabe and Ben Ferguson (USA). Terje Haakonsen (NOR) will for sure also take part himself. *** *** *** *** *** *** *** FOLLOW US ON facebook.com/YOOO.TV OR youtube.com/user/Yoootvch OR vimeo.com/tlf *** *** *** *** *** *** ***

                    12 great and stylish riders are here to help shape the future of snowboarding. Confirmed pro riders are Olympic Halfpipe Champion, Iouri Podladtchikov (SUI), Markus Keller (SUI), Arthur Longo (FRA), Danny Davis (USA), Jack Mitrani (USA), Benji Farrow (USA), Scotty Lago (USA), as well as young guns Gabe and Ben Ferguson (USA). Terje Haakonsen (NOR) will for sure also take part himself. The concept is simple, but complex in a modern sports world: Athletes decides on arena and contest format. On Saturday (forecast: sun) a packed Oslo audience (hopefully) awaits action. The riders have three days to decide which format to perform in. The job is as obvious as difficult: Make a format that is cool for both the athletes and the spectators.

                      This US Open Halfpipe finals went off on Saturday in Vail and once again everyone was reminded that style rules everything. Taylor Gold put down an amazing run that started with a monster method on the first hit and continued with innovative grabs all the way down the pipe. Kelly Clark took home her 7th.........7th US Open halfpipe title an almost super hero feat, and she looked on as perhaps her biggest fan/competition 13 year old Chloe Kim landed super styly switch runs. The story of the day however was Style and that was in the form of Terje Haakonsen, Danny Davis and Scotty Lago as well as Greg Bretz, Ben Ferguson, Billy Anderson and many more poaching the pipe with some of the sickest trains we've ever seen. Check the full video to see all the action as well as interviews with Jake Burton, Terje Haakonsen, Taylor Gold, Kelly Clark, Chloe Kim, and Ben Ferguson go giant on the first hit of the pipe.
