O'Neill Evolution 2009
5-10 January 09, Davos, Switzerland
No longer just a 6*TTR quarterpipe contest, but now also a 5* slopestyle comp, still in Davos though
The top 10 riders from the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour will be invited to the 6-star O’Neill Evolution in addition to 6 wildcard invitees. These 16 riders will meet the 16 qualifiers from the open qualifications..
The seeded riders will be announced during the coming weeks.
In a break from the norm, The O’Neill Evolution will be using a new heat
system – based on that of a surf contest. 4-man heats will start in the round of 32 snowboarders, and from the round of 18, this will be down to 2- man heats to determine the finalists and the winner.
Changing over to this K.O. system will guarantee an exciting contest with a clear undisputed winner.
