The report of 2016 Revolution Tour

The final stop of the Revolution Tour in Seven Springs was a successful one for the American snowboarders, who took three of four wins in the halfpipe and slopestyle competitions. Nora Healey (Plymouth, NH) took the win in slopestyle for the women while Lyon Farrell (Haiku, HI) won slopestyle for the men. Danny Davis (Highland, MI) took the top spot in halfpipe for the men.

It was Healy’s second win on the Revolution Tour, as she also won the Winter Park event just one week before. Healy was also crowned the overall tour winner. Anna Valentine finished just behind Healy as Seven Springs in second place. Farrell earned his first Rev Tour podium finish with the win in Seven Springs. He was joined on the podium by American Brock Crouch (Mammoth Lakes, CA). The overall win for the Rev Tour went to Dylan Thomas (Brooklyn, PA), who took second and fifth at the Winter Park event.

Though the Rev Tour is notably known as a place for up-and-coming athletes to hone their skills, Davis – who is widely known as one of the best professional snowboarders in the elite competitive ranks – needed to compete at Seven Springs to earn valuable FIS points leading into the 2016/17 season. Though he earned the win, he generously donated his prize money to the athletes who finished behind him. Davis was joined on the podium by Jason Wolle (Winter Park, CO), who finished second. Ryan Wachendorfer (Edwards, CO) was the overall tour winner for the halfpipe men.

Top finishers from Seven Springs men’s halfpipe: Blake Moller, fourth; Skyler Ordean, fifth; Chase Blakely, sixth.

The World Snowboard Federation (WSF) is the international organization exclusively working to develop the sport of snowboarding at all levels. Program areas include: competitions, Para-Snowboard, judge and shapers, education and certification, and snowboard activities for riders of every age. The WSF represents a network of National Snowboard Associations (NSAs) who work together at a worldwide level to promote the development of snowboarding. NSA members can find a source of inspiration and support from the WSF for the activities they are conducting within their nation and by working towards the same goal: progression of snowboarding from the ground up. The WSF collaborates with the TTR Pro Snowboarding, the owner and operator of the TTR World Snowboard Tour and the TTR World Ranking System. Through this collaboration and coordination of events at the TTR World Snowboard Tour, The WSF and the TTR want to create an environment that fosters the development of competitive snowboarding.

About TTR Pro Snowboarding & World Snowboard Tour
TTR Pro Snowboarding is a non-profit organization that oversees a professional network of events and athletes. Our objective is to develop and showcase the sport of snowboarding through the World Snowboard Tour, while facilitating a fair and open competition environment that includes innovative judging and ranking systems. We encourage riders to develop from rookies into world-class athletes through a 6 Star level rating system; which will be replaced by a new 4-tiered structure from October 2014. Under the new World Snowboard Tour 2.0, the 4-tiered structure will encompass Elite, International, National, and Regional event levels. Elite events will comprise the WST Pro Series (current working title). The Regional, National, and International levels of the WST 2.0 will make up the WST Qualifying Series (working title).
