Sebastien Toutant kicked off the 2010/11 Swatch TTR World Tour in style taking first place at the Billabong Ante Up in Whistler, B.C. The French Canadian child prodigy nailed a Cab 1260 double cork at the Camp of Champions and rode away with a season opening victory and $20,000. The 1260 double cork was the trick of choice as the all-Canadian podium each pulled different variations of the trick across the 75 foot gap jump on the Blackcomb Glacier.
Matts Kulisek came in second with a frontside 1260 double cork and Mark McMorris rounded off the podium as he went the other way with a backside 12. Toutant’s triumph moved him into third in the Swatch TTR World Rankings and a fourth place finish was good enough to push Gjermund Braaten (another getting in on the 1260 lovefest) to the top of the rankings.
The tour now heads south for the Burton New Zealand Open in August. Check out the videos here.
