What a week of solar flares and big airs the 13th Annual Burton European Open was! All rockets have landed and riders have returned from orbit at this point and we've got the MEGA wrap up ready for you earthlings.
LAAX was turned into a shredastic space station with riders coming from all over the galaxy to rip the super pipe and the newly-located slopestyle course. It was a space race between the Swiss-Russian Iouri Podladchikov and the hairy American Danny Davis in men's pipe. The slopestyle was dominated by the Scandi astronauts, with young gunner Alek Oestreng docking successfully at the top spot for the first time at the BEO. It was all-American for the the ladies with the usual names hogging 1st place with Jamie Anderson for slope and Kelly Clark for pipe.
There was also a LOT of fun had during the course of the week as well, with tons of parties and concerts and awesome mini-shredding. Even though half of our crew was sick with the Ebola virus and another got his face rearranged by an out-of-control skier, this year was incredible at the BEO. Such a good vibe and amazing good times with good friends. Thanks everyone, it was special!
Enjoy the mega blast of pix and flix, and don't miss out next year!
The whole thing started with the Juniors, these kids are amazing.
