At the end of another year pushing the limits of women’s freestyle riding, the Roxy Chicken Jam has been and gone with Enni Rukajärvi topping the leaderboard, going home with the lion’s share of the $50,000 prize money. For her winning run she dropped a FS 360 tail grab, BS 540 indy and a cab 540 as well as a 50/50-to-Nospress on the Roxy up-down box. Enni, who has had a great season so far after winning the 4-star Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam, was stoked, saying;
“I enjoyed the contest, it was really high-level. So good riders, I haven’t seen that before!”
36 riders took to the hill on Friday for the qualifications with 6 of the best going through to the finals with 18 seeded riders, held on Saturday. A great standard of riding was seen by spectators with 5’s, 7’s and cab 540’s all been thrown down.
Third place Kjersti Buass had this to say about the comp “The park is really good, they really did a good job with this. And the town is so cosy, it’s amazing, we only had to walk five minutes from the hotel to get to the park.” “There were a lot of people watching and that’s entertaining and pushing me to do better”
