Max Parrot, Seb Toots still got it! Shakedown 2015

  • Max Parrot, Seb Toots still got it! Shakedown 2015

Max Parrot has proven he’s still got what it takes to win at Ride Shakedown 2015, with his Best Trick victory on Saturday.

This year, the numerous types of rails and feature, particularly the Empire jump, created more height and momentum with more possibilities for complex trick combinations. And because of this, the pro competition at Shakedown is now classed as a 5-star event on the World Snowboard Tour – really great for Canada, which despite being the home of so many star riders, is somewhat forgotten about when it comes to world ski and snowboard events.

Max Parrot’s sick 50-50 backside 360 gap out to 50-50 frontside 180-out clearly impressed the judges, who awarded him Best Trick.

Sebastian Toutant came in 2nd place, which means both Parrot and himself are the most successful riders at Shakedown, making the podium several times since this competition first started.

In the amateur competition, Jonathan Truchon was crowned champion of the Coors Light Rail Jam. The competition was fierce against Antonin Chamberland, so what made Truchon stand out? He used every available feature and successfully executed a backflip to boardslide and massive transfer gap to lip boardslide.

We can definitely expect more great things at Shakedown in the coming years.
