Québec City, Monday, January 20, 2014 – Saturday evening was the Stairsmasters finale, the street riding contest held online within the Snowboard Jamboree presented by Mazda in collaboration with Videotron mobile. Eight pro riders produced a 1-minute video segment to win the $10,000 grand prize.
The Quebecers Frank Bourgeois took once again the honors and won the grand prize for the second year. The judges of Snowboard Canada Magazine and renowned movie DéjàVu were unanimous: Frank really stood out with his segment, performing even a Backside Rodeo to wallride. He has even increased his prize money, also taking home the award given by Videotron mobile, granted to the rider with the most votes from the public. The second and third prizes were won respectively by Anto Chamberland and Jordan Morse. Stairsmasters also included an OPEN category, won by Mammouth Durette.
All video segments can now be viewed at stairs.snowjamboree.com.
Recall that the Stairsmasters was held as part of the official Snowboard Jamboree party. Musically speaking, 2000 attendees were treated to an amazing punk evening with Millencolin, Pulley, Strike Anywhere and Still Insane.
