Burton Canadian Open 2012 – Mini Creative Use of Space Slopestyle Jamie Anderson and Chas Guldemond are officially creative, if you are to believe Mini at least. Last week’s Burton Canadian Open (BCO) was the first stop of the Burton Global Open series which featured the Mini Creative Use of Space award, an initiative by the car makers to reward creativity and pay handsomely for it.

At each stop of the tour the local park shaper will design a feature for the slopestyle course and be in with the chance of winning $5000 for the overall most creative use of space. Riders at the BCO were faced with Ryan Neptune’s skate inspired funbox concept to get jibby on. Guldemond impressed with a 360 stale bonk over the strategically placed Mini while Anderson had her fun with the feature too, both doing enough to pocket a cool $2500.

The concept seems to be pretty cool and it’s clear why the riders are keen for this to be involved, as they can win some pretty sweet moneys by doing relatively simple tricks. Also, anyone else think that the winners are reading a placard behind the camera during their interviews?
