Electric Pulp


Eric Willett took home the Brux Slopestyle title last Thursday at the 5Star TTR Burn River Jump in Livigno, Italy and Mark McMorris got 3rd place of the Strait Jump competition last Friday.

Willett’s winning run included a Switch Backside 1260, Frontside Double Cork 1080 and a Double Backside Rodeo, which scored him miles ahead of his opponents. Collecting another great result this season in addition with his 4th place in the Strait Jump format of the same competition, he’s now in the top ten of the TTR World Tour by moving into No.9.
This season the Burn River Jump was awarded one more TTR star, and with its perfect set up, stoked top level riders and ecstatic fans the River Jump proved that it has earned the 5 Star honor. “It was one of the best slopestyle courses that I have ever ridden!” Eric Willett said after the event. The Straight Jump setup consisted of a 19m flat kicker and a gap over the Spoel river, followed by a jib section.
