, an insanely young Swiss rookie, took the men’s slopestyle title at the 5-Star TTR Nescafe Championships in Leysin last weekend. The 15-year-old stomped a 720, followed by a back 9, cab 9 and another back 9 on the unusual slopestyle course to land himself in first place. Cilka Sadar
won the women’s title. Despite the fact that they clashed with the Air & Style in Munich this year, the Championships still managed to attract an impressive field of big-name riders, including invitees Risto Mattila
, and the UK’s very own Dan Wakeham
! Dan may be better known for his pipe talents than his skills on the slopestyle course, but he can still throw together a mean sequence of tricks – as anyone who’s watched him ride outside of competitions will testify.
