It was an action packed weekend in downtown Moscow, with a massive Big Air setup at the VV Central Exhibition Center square. For the first time in TTR Pro Snowboarding's history a 4Star Big Air competition was held in Moscow, Russia, and it was a huge success. "It was such an amazing experience yet again. Winning here in this amazing capital felt really good, I am happy with my season. It’s all one big adventure,’" said Eric Willett (USA), whose smooth Backside 1260 Indy grab and frontside tailslide to 270 out, took the top podium spot.
Eric snags another big air WIN!
Russian Alexey Sobolev
followed Willett with a Switch Backside 1260 mute Double Cork, and backside boardslide to fakie on the rails. O’Neill Evolution winner Maxence Parrot
(CAN) became third with his Cab Double Cork 1260 with Melon grab, and a noseslide off the rainbow rails.
Not everything evolved around the competitions; in between snowboard action the massive crowd was entertained with Motocross and Snowmobile showcases and live acts like Xzibit
