The Toyota One Hit Wonder Down Under, a week-long ski and snowboarding big-air event in Thredbo, Australia, wrapped up this weekend and the voting is now open. You can vote for your favorite one-hit trick to decide who will be crowned the 2010 Toyota One Hit Wonder Down Under ski and snowboard champions. (Bonus: If you vote, your name will go into a drawing to win an all-expenses paid trip to Niseko, Japan, and a Salomon ski and snowboard setup.)
On the first day of the contest, the athletes took to the custom 90-foot big air jump under sunny skies. American McRae Williams threw a switch double-cork 1260 with a mute grab and two-time X Games champion Bobby Brown showed off a switch double misty 1260 with a high mute grab. New Zealand's Byron Wells got a personal best by stomping a switch double rodeo 900. Australia's Charlie Timmins stomped a personal best trick for the first time -- a double cork 1080.
"We were stoked to wake up to a bluebird day with no wind," says Bobby Brown, "but our day got even better when we saw the massive 90-foot booter which has been custom built for the event."On the final day of filming, the competitors voted McRae Williams as the winner of the Red Bull Rider's Choice award. Local 17-year-old Jesse Houghton, the youngest competitor in the contest, threw down double front flips, flat spins and a huge flat 1260. Johnny Lipzker landed a switch double-cork 1080, and Charlie Timmins stuck a double cork 1260 mute grab. "The jump was definitely the best it's been all week," Timmins said. "Competing [here] is awesome. It's like you're just riding with friends, but you get to launch off the best jump ever built in Australia." Vote here for your favorite trick.
