Canadian contest robot Sebastien Toutant managed to piss on the American party at the Burton U.S. Open 2012. With a win for Jamie Anderson in womens’ slopestyle and complete domination in halfpipe, only mens’ slopestyle gold was outwith their grasp. Seb Toots wins one for the visitors:
1st – SEBASTIEN TOUTANT
The rest of the podium is interesting; one of them (Belgium’s Seppe Smits) hails from a land not known for producing world-class snowboarding talent, and the other (1620-stomper Ulrik Badertscher) first hit caught the eye of the snowboard world with a new yet divisive trick. Both of those could describe British pro Billy Morgan – maybe he’ll hit those heights in a season or two?
2nd – ULRIK BADERTSCHER
3rd – SEPPE SMITS
