Happy Happy Hampus!
This in from etnies Euro correspondant Steffi Hager:
I just got back from the X-Box Big Day Out contest in Val D'Isere, France, where etnies Snow team rider Hampus Mosesson took first place on Thursday night! It was a three-star TTR Slopestyle contest, with a small jump on top, a big jump in the middle and a hip at the bottom of the course. Hampus won the Highest Air contest on the hip with not only one, but a couple of massive airs that none of the other riders could top, taking home a new X-Box 360 and 500 Euros for his trouble!
The Slopestyle Finals were held later in the evening, and Hampus stomped his run perfectly with a smooth Cab 900 shifty and a massive air on the corner for another 1st place. The conditions for night riding were not really too good, either! It was bitter cold, and take-offs and landings were icy. It was hard to get the right speed for the big jump, as well, and most people went way too far and landed in the flat! But Hampus managed to proceed at just the right speed and forcefully land his Cab 900 shifty to take the lead!
Third place went to the European contest legacy and Finnish etnies Snow rocker Aleksi Vanninen. He was the oldest participant, and showed the young guns and judges some serious riding skills.
Congrats Hampus! We heart you!
