Now that the Schladming World Cup Finals are over, it’s marked another ski race season that has come and gone. There were a bunch of highlights and low-downs, but rather than getting into a lengthy recap, we’ll just post a bunch of impressions from this past weekend in Schladming, Austria.

A good turnout. Austrian fans are always amped for they skiing!

Patrick Deneen National and World Freestyle Champion

Megeve, France

Today in Megeve, France Patrick took on the top mogul skiers in the world for the FIS World Cup Finals Mogul Championships winning every round of the competition and in the end he was named the undefeated World Cup Finals Champion.

The day started out sunny high in the French Alps and ended in a heavy snowstorm where at times we could not see the top of the course.

It was a great way to end the world cup season.

Congratulations Patrick on another great season. Way to shred it up.

Just got this nicely produced video on the recent Shred Down Austrian Masters event… good stuff. I wonder how these guys would be judged in a head-to-head with riders from the rest of the world?

Hi Shred Crew!

Here some news update!

Last Friday/Saturday I was in Westendorf (Tirol, Austria) to ride the Shred Down Austrian Masters Slopestyle (3Star TTR).

This is the event where the “Austrian Slopestyle Master” is crowned every year, and for this event you either have to qualify at the Austria Cup Tour or get a Wild Card.

The Format this year was 3 Runs at the Railline best one counts and 3 Runs at the Kicker Line best one counts. I threw down my runs how I wanted it and in the end I got 2nd place. In addition to this I also won the “Best Trick Award” for my Frontside 1080 tail grab. I am pretty stoked, since a lot of Austria`s strongest Slopestyle riders where there and I didn´t expect that I´ll score such a good result. Find some pics and the full result-list in the appendix of this mail.

Then some more news:
One week before, I went to Rinn (near Innsbruck, Austria) to ride the Volcom Peanut Butter and Rail Jam there. I was starting in the open class (this is the class for sponsored and pro riders). Threw down my runs and qualified for the final of the best 10. Unfortunately, at my first run in the final the tail of my board broke and I had to ride the whole finals with that handicap.

Anyhow I managed it to put down some good tricks and in the end I got 4th place. This is good, since the first 5 of each Peanut Butter and Railjam Stop qualify for the big finals in Avoriaz. There the best Rail Riders from all over Europe will battle it out at the end of March.

Cheers
Flo

After a bit of dry spell for several consecutive GS races, Ted has regained his top form and simply obliterated the competition at today’s Kranjska Gora Giant Slalom. When you win by 1.61 seconds, that’s pretty much annihilation.

Congratulations Ted on finding your groove again!
