Etnies European Open 2003--Stavanger, Norway

Jun 10 2003 / Tuesday

June 6-8, 2003
Vert, Street, Mini-Ramp & Juniors

Rune Gilfberg won vert and etnies youngster Fredrik Austbo grabbed 1st in mini-ramp at the the etnies European Open in beautiful Stavanger, Norway. More than thirty juniors competed in the Under 14 division with an excellent line-up of tricks like boardslides on the rail, kickflips over the pyramid and frontside airs for 1st prize on Friday, the juniors day.

Due to inclement weather on Saturday, street, vert and mini-ramp all took place on a cloudy Sunday. Hundreds of spectators watched local hero Frederik Austbo win the mini-ramp competition doing huge frontside lien transfers from one mini-ramp to the other. Mickey Igesias from Switzerland claimed 2nd place with big one-foot ollies to fakie and switch crooked grinds. Michael Jensen, who competed in all three disciplines, received 3rd for his efforts.

The crҨme de la crme of European vert riders gathered for the vert finals on Sunday, including Finland's Jussi Krohonen, who pulled 540 indy grabs for 3rd place. Terrence Bougdour from France spinned McTwists and rodeo flips and landed in 2nd, but nothing could beat the smooth style of Rune Glifberg from Copenhagen, Denmark. Thanks to frontside heelflip Indys, fakie backside flip Indys and switch kickflips, 1st place easily fell into Rune's lap.

Eight entrants skated into the street finals. France's Yann Garin qualified first for the semi-finals and finals with his unique style, featuring nollie backside heelflip 270s. etnies rider Chris Astrom picked out 2nd place (from a box full of twenty places) with a kickflip frontside boardslide on the rail, and, again, local etnies rider Fredrik Austbo from Stavanger pleased the crowd with his backside lipslide on the biggest rail for 3rd.
