In case you were out shredding and missed the webcast yesterday, Chas Guldemond and Jamie Anderson won this year's edition of The Oakley Arctic Challenge. Held in Vinterpark, Oslo, this year's course was fast, large and left no room for error if you wanted a spot on the podium. For the first time in many years women were invited to Terje's legendary event, and they rode the exact same course as the men, good to see the girls stepping it up! Pretty sure the official video recap is coming real soon, in the mean time here are some sweet pix from TAC 2011, you can also read the full press release and results HERE.
UPDATE: Here's the clip!

Jenny Jones was sending it deep with some nasty front 3 nose pokers, good stuff Jones! Photo: Eleonora Raggi
Spencer O'Brien was getting pretty tech on the big jumps, including a frontside 5 off her toes, something you don't see many girls doing Photo: Eleonora Raggi
Cheryl Maas was looking good but couldn't put together a solid run, unfortunately Photo: Eleonora Raggi
Jamie definitely deserved the win, stomping the techest, cleanest run of the day. Check out this HUGE switch back 5 on the big booter, solid grab held all the way, yea Jamie! Photo: Eleonora Raggi

Mark McMorris is on fire right now, this kid has some ridiculous skills and a sleepy style that just brings a smile to our faces Photo: Olav Stubberud
Per-Iver Grimsrud was the oldest rider in the final and we were really impressed with the amplitude of his aerial maneuvers and his understated style, big ups man! Photo: Olav Stubberud
Ethan got one of the only perfect scores of the day with this creamy smooth front blunt 450 out, so sick! Photo: Olav Stubberud
Eric Willett was riding on a broken board but still managed to stomp the sickest spin of the contest with a switch back 12 on the big boy, shame he couldn't hold it together for a full run... Photo: Olav Stubberud
