Kicking off the summer contest circuit, the Billabong Ante Up Big Air just wrapped up last weekend in Whistler/Blackcomb during Canada’s version of Independence Day. The graybird skies and wet conditions didn’t keep the riders from throwing down solid tricks. Out of 30 competitors, 10 qualified for the finals, and Eric Willet came out the winner of this 5 star TTR Big Air event. It wasn’t an easy win, he battled against slopestyle slayers like Sebastian Toutant, Chas Gouldemond, Gjermund Braaten, and Seppe Smits. Willet’s winning trick was a switch backside double cork 1260.
