Šárka Pančochová- „The riding was excellent, all obstacles were well prepared. I really like the setup of the track as it contains half pipe, corner, rails and a big air. I am happy for the organization and for the feedback from the public on site“
Petr Horák – „It was great, I really like the feeling here at home, the people were screaming and giving me the energy. I am happy for the result, lets go party!“
Janne Korpi- „I am happy that I landed the Cab Double Cork in the pipe since the pipe wasn´t really high so it was not easy to spin and I am stoked for it. The crowd was amazing and I enjoyed riding here. The last time I was here I didn´t go to the party, so tonight I am going to check it out“
Cheryl Maas: “I had a great time here in Czech republic, the venue is very good organized. I feel like I am here to snowboard and to get results or anything I am just having fun and enjoying. It was very interesting to have a pipe on Slopestyle competition and I think it´s really good because it really shows that you can snowboard. I put down a pretty good score so I felt really confident. It was so nice to snowboard here I was really enjoying the crowd going crazy when you coming down so it was really motivating to also make something good for them. And now it´s a time to party.“
Lucien Koch- „I am here in Snowjam for the second time and I enjoyed it a lot, I had a sick week with three or four great training days already. I like this course a lot including the pipe, thats really sick. Two years ago I was riding pipe a lot, now I am riding more Slopestyle and I am really happy if I can combine those two. Its very original to have a pipe on a Slopestyle course. At the end of my winning run I had a pretty big Switch BS 1280 which I didn´t expect to land but I did and judges awarded me that I could win at the end. The crowd was pretty good, I have never been to a World Cup competition where the crowd was this crazy. And the prize giving? The crowd was just insane and I think the next year I am definitely coming back.“
Klaudia Medlová – „I am incredibly happy for the podium, moreover that the competition was in the Czech republic. It was the biggest crowd here from all events I participated in this year. I just made an air in Halfpipe as I am not strong in it, FS Flip over the lolly and FB Boardslide on rails with a BS Rodeo on the Big Air. I am satisfied, happy and really looking for the party.“
