FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Flaunt It held its 5th and final Canadian stop of the tour this past weekend at Mont Saint Sauveur, Quebec. The girls had wonderful spring conditions with a diverse course that catered to all levels. There were three rail decks with an assortment of rail features and two jump decks with three different sized jump options.
Tamara Truchon from Quebec City was on fire this weekend winning first in slopestyle, taking home $700 and a trip to the finals at Sierra-at-Tahoe. Additionally Truchon was first in the rail jam, and took home the Dakine Best Trick with a stylish front 360. Eve Liberte from Blainville came in second, and St Sauveur local Sam Rudinsky finished off in third.
The rail jam ended the day with two features for the girls to choose from; a long flat box and a round handrail. Truchon took first place in the rail jam with a frontside 50-50 to 180 out on the handrail. Camille Bellavance from Quebec City held down second place and Laliberte came in third.
Natasha Hebert's style merited the Nixon Style award winning a set of Nixon RPM Headphones and TPS Speakers. Caroline Poole demonstrated a painful reverse taco and came out smiling when she won the VonZipper Ragdoll award.
Loon Mountain, NH is last stop on the tour before the Flaunt It Finals at Sierra-at-Tahoe!
