Burton High 5 2011 – Tamworth win the Golden Shovel

After two months of tearing around the country in search of the best park the UK has to offer, the Burton High 5 team can now announce that this year’s winner of the prestigious Golden Shovel award is (drumroll)… Tamworth!

Voting has been underway for the last week and it was touch and go on many occasions, with a few leader changes on the way. Tamworth will now be given two of the Burton features which they will be able to use as part of their regular setup from now on. Alongside this, four of their park shapers have earned themselves a well deserved trip to Rude Chalets in Avoriaz where they will be able to enjoy someone else shaping the park for a change!

This year’s tour has been a massive success, with the standard of riding higher than ever before. This, alongside the extremely high standard of the parks, is even more evidence of how strong the UK scene is. It must be recognised that all the slopes put out an excellent setup and an awesome night that those who attended are sure to remember for a good while. So well done Tamworth and thank you to the riders, shapers and of course Burton for an epic tour which will hopefully happen all over again next year!
