Today saw the second 6Star event for the women of the 09/10 Swatch TTR Tour season, the Roxy Chicken Jam. The level was incredibly high at the Nightpark in Saalbach-Hinterglemm and the judges had a tight decision to make when it came down to the super finals. It was 19 year old Enni Rukajärvi from Finland who emerged as the winner leaving Cheryl Maas (NED) in second and Kjersti Ostgaard Buaas (NOR) in third.

Enni Rukajärvi has had a glorious early season with her win at the 4Star Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam to now taking the coveted title at 6Star Roxy Chicken Jam. Jumping up into World No.14, she is plowing her way up the Swatch TTR ranking. Enni’s trademark is her textbook technique, which she displayed in her winning run consisting of a 50/50 on the top rail, a stylish frontside 3 tail grab, backside 540 indy grab, Cab 540 and 50/50 nose press. Today Enni was beaming with smiles; “Feels great, I am really surprised, I had no idea this would happen. The level was really high…I just tried to do my best. From here I go to the European Open and lets see how that goes.“

Sitting in TTR World No. 2, the top spot is only a few points away for Cheryl Maas who showed her solid talent and stomped the best trick of the day, a lofty backside 720 tail, one of her signature tricks. When asked about her aspirations to become a two-time Swatch TTR Champion she says it would be “awesome” but hesitates: “There are still so many comps to be done…there are a lot of people hunting for that spot“. Sarka Pancochova (CZE), remains in World No. 1 after today’s 4th place and will certainly not give her top spot away without a fight.

With a 5th place finish today and a 2nd place in the Halfpipe at 6Star O’Neill Evolution 2010 in Davos, Sina Candrian (SUI) now moves into Swatch TTR World No. 3 just in front of newcomer talent and second in this weeks O’Neill Evolution Cilka Sadar (SLO). Both Kjersti and her fellow Norwegian Lisa Wiik are climbing up the ranks with Kjersti now in the World No. 8 and Lisa in World No.5.
