Only two words can describe the PONEY SESSION on DAY 2: EXTREME action!
Due to near blizzard conditions on Thursday and the forecasted windy conditions on Saturday and Sunday, PONEY organization and riders worked together to complete course training, qualifications AND finals in one day - Friday, March 15th.
At the end of Friday afternoon only ten finalists remained. Greg Poissonier, competition MC extraordinaire, guided the crowd, play-by-play, through a series of 45 minute heats in which the squad ofFinish, Norwegian and Russianriders showed off their best skills and tricks - e.g. the double, 10, ‘Miller’ flip, back flip, front flip, to name a few...
To say the crowd was excited to see so much talent perform on the PONEY course, in one day, would be an understatement!
The competition results are as follows:
At just 15 years old, Vlad Kadharin from Russia, earns the Best Rookie title and 500 € with his impressive action on the rails section and jumps.
Sami Luhtanen from FINLAND wins Best Trick on the SALOMON sponsored JAIL RAIL section (cash prize: 500€) with his performance of the ‘Cab 27 front board’.
Aleksi Partanen, another ripper from FINLAND, wins the BIG AIR MONSTER (500€) with a switch double rodeo back.
Martin Kalliola, yet another Finish rider, wins the Best Trick on DAKINE TABLE GAP (500€) and landed one of the few tricks made on the GAP, a backside 5 stale-fish super engaged!
Overall 1st place for the PONEY SESSION 2013, goes to newcomer Aleksi Partanen, 20 years old. He impressed both crowd and judges with his 50/50 180 out, on the JAIL RAIL Section, followed by a switch double rodeo back on Big Air, and then finishing with a massive Front 10 on the Dakine Table - winning him 5000 € in prize money!
Overall 2nd place goes to the Finish machine, Sami Luhtanen, who earned his place on the podium (and 2500 €) with his consistent audience wowing doubles.
Last but certainly not least, overall 3rd place goes to Martin Kaliolla, winning 1200€.

"Listening to Danger is like taking care of the time without feeling late, since hours are as well evocative as feelings for Franck Rivoire, the man behind the Danger phenomenon. With only three releases, he became a key figure in the French electro scene post Justice.
More than mere music, Danger, who was strongly influenced by video games as a teenager, creates a full-fledged universe in which dynamism, surprising structures and sought textures interact and complement each other between his artwork and his music.
Danger has proven to be able to reach a wide audience, with stunning live shows around the world and remixes for Sebastien Tellier, Estelle feat. Kanye West, Black Eyed Peas, La Roux or Midnight Juggernauts.
Live, Danger is a war machine deploying a stunning and epic new show where music, beats and visuel effects are mixed for creating a unique atmosphere. Being at a Danger concert is like a travel. like discovering a universe through on advenlure full of strong symbol and references."

See u in March from 8 to 11th in Saint Lary Soulan in the French Pyrenees!
The 9th edition of the 4Star Poney Session took place with perfect spring conditions at the
St Lary snow park in the French Pyrénnées on the 19th to the 22nd of March 2011.
The winner, a Pyrénnées local and well established French rider, Mathieu Crepel, took home a big share of the $20 000 USD prize purse, as well as, 500 Swatch TTR Tour ranking points. Mathieu has many merits in his name, one of the most significant of these, the first ever TTR Tour Champion Title, which he claimed in 2005/06. On the podium at the Poney Session slopestyle competition was also Sweden’s Isak Björnström with a second place, and in third was French Jean Jaques (JJ) Roux.
Mathieu Crepel Shows The Crowds Some of His New Tricks
The format of the event was a fun jam session and the final saw ten riders take two runs, with hundreds of people cheering on in the sunny and slushy spring-time conditions.
Mathieu Crepel took the victory in the freshly upgraded 4Star Poney Session. It was a treat for the spectators to see him competing in his home region, since he has taken a step back from the competitive snowboarding circuit, focusing on riding powder in the recent years. He was stoked after the event saying, “It was awesome as usual. I had a perfect day with my good friends and the park was amazing! I rode every line of the slope, I tried new tricks and I landed a Cab Double Under, in the Perfect Jump. I'm stoked to finally get the Pony Title!
This event really is worth it's 4 TTR stars and I'll be there for sure for the 10th anniversary next year! " Mathieu’s winning run included a half cab boardslide 270 out on the pole jam, a switch back 900 on the big air, a sweet frontside 1080.
See you next Year,
COMMON DANTTZ !
