The men’s finals went down in the afternoon and Chas Guldemond (USA) was awarded with the win for his flawless run on the progressive slopestyle course. Chas and Jamie were rewarded with the lion’s share of the $100,000 USD prize purse and 1000 Swatch TTR World Ranking points. With her win today, Jamie solidified her place in the World No. 1 position and is going to be tough to overtake in the women’s race for the TTR World Tour Champion Title.

The men’s final all came down to the last runs where riders were trying their best to get ahead of Chas Guldemond who stomped a nearly perfect first run on the long slopestyle course. Chas put together a masterful run that consisted of a Cab 270 to frontside boardslide on the down rail, a switch 50-50 to method on the canon rail, Cab 1260 on the step-down jump, backside 1080 on the step-up jump, a 50-50 to backside 360 on the flat rail and finished with a crowd pleasing double backside rodeo on the last jump. Chas was beyond excited with his win saying, "I’m really happy with the way I rode and to stay in first place through the last run really means a lot to me. I think it was my day today and it all came together perfect. What an amazing experience." Young American rider, Tyler Flanagan, pushed his skills to the max in his last run to take second place scoring just two points below Chas.

In the women’s competition, Jamie Anderson ruled the slopestyle course with her signature style and is now in an excellent position to take the 2010/11 Swatch TTR World Tour Champion title after her win in Oslo. Jamie won the women’s competition with a run made up of a noseslide, 50-50 to backside 180, a huge switch backside 540, backside 360, tailslide to 270 out and ended her run with a stylish backside 540.
