Where: Ruka, Finland
Ruka, Finland is going to see yet another Oakley Girlsessions. The event takes place from 8 to 11 April 2010. It is famous for attracting female riders of all levels from Finland as well as riders from all over Europe to hit the perfectly shaped Ruka BatteryPark. Girls have a chance to compete in various formats, including a 3 star swatch TTR contest, a team contest, and an individual slope style and pipe competition. No matter if you are pro or rookie, as long as you are female April should be all about heading North and killing it in Finland! By the way: Last year’s winner Enni Rukajärvi has since taken the pro contest scene by storm, winning pretty much every contest she was competing in: Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam, Roxy Chicken Jam, Burton European Open and the Burton Canadian Open!
Your car broke down, your rent is due, and you are rocking the gear from the year before last? Well, being a 3-Star TTR event, the 2010 Oakley Girlsessions offers a total of 2500$ prize money, and a total of around 10.000$ in other prizes for all riders participating. Then there’s a lot of side events, including bowling, theme parties and – to quote from the press release – “the possibility to see the mystic forests of Northern Finland, where the reindeer roam freely!” If nothing else this should get you going, no?
