Watch the video of the top 3 runs from the Burn River Jump slopestyle finals that went down the other day in Livigno. Roope Tonteri and Ulrik Badertscher sent it hard, but rampant rookie Emil Ulsletten had that little bit more and took the title at this TTR 5-Star event.
It was only last year that Emil won the World Rookie Fest, and he becomes yet another member of the WRF alumni to go on and crush it at a senior level, following in the footsteps of dudes like Peetu Piiroinen, Gjermund Bråten and third-placed Roope Tonteri. Way to go, dude! Later in the event, at the actual ‘River Jump’ nighttime spectacular, Roope came up trumps and bagged the win ahead of Ulrik Badertscher. We’re still waiting for the highlights from that as everyone who was in Livigno is currently on the road to Laax for the BEO. As soon as that’s ready, we’ll let you know.
1st – Emil Ulsletten
2nd – Ulrik Badertscher
3rd – Roope Tonteri
