Jenny Jones Wins Gold at Winter X Games (Posted Monday, January 26, 2009 by joannebrown)
Jenny Jones has become the first Brit to win a gold medal in the slopestyle at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado
28-year-old Jones claimed victory in her final run when she landed a huge frontside 720 over the 80ft kicker.
She said: "My first run was sketchy, my second run I cleaned it up, so it looked better and I felt happy with the run.
"It wasn't enough, as I was still in second by about three points. So I just had to go for it on the last run and did a 720 over the last jump.
“I was so pleased to win and suddenly the emotions went crazy and I had to try hard not to cry. It means so much to me to win an X Games medal and to win gold is the icing on the cake.”

Well done Jenny!
Jenny Jones 3rd Place at US Open Slopestyle (Posted Friday, March 21, 2008 by stu)
Just watched Jenny Jones come 3rd at the US Open in the slopestyle. Her 3rd run was the best score and in fairness she did amazing to come 3rd with her 3rd run score, since she fell on the first run hurting her tail bone which I believe she has broken?

MIKKEL BANG & JENNY JONES WIN NIPPON SLOPESTYLE TITLE (Posted Friday, February 29, 2008 by stu)
ALTS Bandai, Japan, February 29, 2008: Under sunny Japanese skies Mikkel Bang from Norway and Jenny Jones from Great Britain won the Slopestyle competition at the Swatch TTR FIVE(5) STAR Nissan X-Trail Nippon Open. Due to heavy snowfall, the Slopestyle event in ALTS Bandai, Japan was rescheduled and took place today, Friday February 29th, 2008. Many TTR Ranking changes occurred after the Slopestyle, but there is still a chance for big moves and possibly a new Women�s Tour Leader after the approaching Halfpipe show down taking place March 2nd.
The women were first to hit the park that consisted of a rail setup up top, a big 50-foot kicker and a big corner at the bottom. Jenny Jones finished 1st in front of US rider Jamie Anderson, who still maintains her hold on Tour Lead with her second place, and Izumi Amaike from Japan who finished third. Earning 850 ranking points and now sitting at TTR World No. 4, Jones moved past 06/07 TTR Tour Champion Torah Bright (AUS) who didn't make the finals. Swiss rider Sina Candrian finished 9th and now entered the Swatch TTR Top 5 pushing fellow Swiss rider Ursina Haller down to TTR World No. 6.
With his Nippon Open title win, Norwegian slopestyle specialist Mikkel Bang now has another 850 ranking points under his belt and moves into a solid position in the TTR Top 10.� Antti Autti from Finland sits right behind Bang at TTR World No. 8 with only a 7th place finish today after competing against strong Finnish and Japanese contenders in the 16-man final. The TTR rankings could dramatically change come Sunday�s Halfpipe battle, and if Autti wins he could move past Bang, who is not competing in the Halfpipe event, placing Autti in a good position for upcoming FIVE(5) and SIX(6)Star TTR events.
Bang was throwing down all day with a BS Lipslide on the box, a Switch BS 9 and a huge alley-oop FS 3. Jones proved why she�s one of the top female Slopestyle riders with a slick Boardslide into a Cab 5 and ending with a big FS Air on the hip. The local Japanese riders were also killing it in ALTS Bandai, putting up a good fight against the international riders. Local superstar Kazu Kokubo, now in the TTR Top 20, finished 2nd in the Slopestyle with big spins on the kicker and sick inverted tricks on the hip. Jaakko Ruha from Finland finished 3rd in the Slopestyle and entered the Swatch TTR Top 50.
Sunday's FIVE(5)STAR Halfpipe event will give the top female title contenders another chance to collect crucial TTR ranking points. If Anderson makes the final she will be able to stay in TTR World No. 1. Torah Bright could move past Jenny Jones after the Halfpipe competition and could even take the Tour Lead if she beats Kelly Clark and Jamie Anderson places 10th or lower.
The battle for Swatch TTR ranking points in the men�s field falls upon riders such as Janne Korpi who could move into the TTR Top 10 and Kazu Kokubo who could take a spot in the TTR Top 25. Charles Reid form Canada will also be looking for a spot in the TTR Top 40 as Takaharu Nakai and Fumiyuki Murakami look to increase their ranks in the TTR Top 50. Of course Antti Autti is one to watch out for, as he�s sure to bring his signature spins and inverted aerials in hopes to take the Nippon Open Halfpipe Title.

JENNY JONES (GBR) LAUNCHES INTO SWATCH TTR WORLD NUMBER ONE FOR ONE DAY AFTER BURTON EUROPEAN OPEN SLOPESTYLE (Posted Thursday, January 17, 2008 by stu)
Laax, Switzerland: It was a gorgeous day in Laax Switzerland as the leading Men and Women fought for the Tour lead in the Slopestyle finals at the Swatch TTR SIX(6)STAR Burton European Open. Jamie Anderson (USA) took home the BEO Slopestyle Title as did Shaun White (USA), who posted his first TTR result of the season, earning 1000 TTR Ranking points. Jenny Jones (GBR) however, finished second in the slopestyle, which moved her into TTR World No. 1, just 3 points ahead of now TTR World No. 2 Jamie Anderson.
SEE JENNY'S TTR PROFILE Click here
Snowboarding fans and judges saw big tricks come from the day’s top riders in both the Men’s and Women’s fields, taking progression to a whole new level. With Anderson stomping huge 540s off the kickers, busting out sick eggplants on the Quarterpipe and bringing back her buttery rail combos, there was no question as to why she won the Title. Jenny Jones landed huge 3s and a FS540 off the bigger kicker line, coming in second, as Silvia Mittermueller (GER) rounded out the Top 3 with sick alley-oops, big 7s and technical rail combos.
06/07 Tour Champion Torah Bright (AUS) who finished 9th overall in the Slopestyle has moved into Swatch TTR World No. 3 ahead of Elizabeth Beerman (USA) who is now World No. 4. Kelly Clark (USA) did not compete in the BEO Slopestyle and thus has been bumped down to TTR World No. 5.
The Men were going huge today with the Americans leading the pack. Shaun White (USA) took the Slopestyle Title with an insane kicker combo comprised of a huge Frontside 9 off the quarterpipe, a Frontside 10, a Backside 9 and then a Cab 10 off the kickers. Chas Guldemond (USA) was the runner up stomping an insane backside 1260 on the last kicker after a sweet McTwist, and Cab 9. Chas was the only rider to do a 12 in the entire competition. Tim Humphreys (USA) took the third spot with sick rail combos, and clean 7s, 9s and 10s in each of his runs.
Andy Finch (USA) holds on to his TTR Tour Lead as Chas Guldemond moves into World No. 3 with Risto Mattila (FIN) right behind him by just one point at Swatch TTR World No 4. Tim Humphreys’ (USA) second place moves him into World No. 8.
All the major TTR men and women riders will be bringing out the big guns, as there are only a few more opportunities to post their best SIX(6)STAR results and claim that desirable Swatch TTR World Championship Title and a piece of the $250 000 USD TTR prize purse.
In the men’s field, Risto Mattila, Andy Finch and Kevin Pearce (USA) will battle it out for the Top 3 spots in the TTR Rankings. 06/07 Tour Champion Shaun White is also a favourite going into the finals, and he could take home a second 2008 TTR Title in just one event, moving into Top 40.
Jamie Anderson didn’t make the Halfpipe finals, but finished 9th overall in Halfpipe, which earns her enough TTR Ranking points to move to World No. 1. Therefore, the battle for World No. 2 will shift over to Bright and Clark. Both girls are favourites going into the finals, so look for huge amplitude from Kelly and technical finesse from Torah.

Jenny Jones Qualifies in 1st place for slopestyle finals at BEO (Posted Wednesday, January 16, 2008 by stu)
Jenny JonesMany of the world’s best slopestyle riders, including Shaun White (USA), Jenny Jones (GBR), Jamie Anderson (USA) and Antti Autti (FIN) competed in today’s BEO slopestyle semi-finals, doing their best to earn a spot in the final competition of this 6-Star TTR event.
The women were up first with 21 riders competing for only eight spots in the finals. Most of the riders pulled out all the stops in their second runs, with the top three slopestyle semi-finalists Jenny Jones (GBR), Jamie Anderson (USA) and Silvia Mittermueller (GER) all earning their highest scores after their first run. Jenny Jones definitely earned the top spot and applause from the crowd for her impressive back to back 360’s and frontside 5 on the kickers. Jamie Anderson stuck two 5’s but got big ups from the judges when she threw down a sick and stylish ally-oop hand plant to fakie on the quarter. 2007 Burton Global Open Series and TTR Champion Torah Bright just missed earning a spot in the finals, placing ninth in today’s semi-finals. The eight women who made it to the slopestyle finals represent eight different nations, making it one of the most diverse BEO women’s slopestyle finals in recent memory. Flims-Laax local rider Sina Candrian (SUI), who was first discovered when she won both BEO junior competitions three years ago, also earned a spot in the women’s slopestyle finals.
JENNY JONES SETTLES IN WORLD NO2 POSITION FOLLOWING SIX(6)STAR ROXY CHICKEN JAM (Posted Monday, December 17, 2007 by stu)
After some unfortunate weather causing the postponement of competition on Saturday, the skies opened up and the sun shone brightly on the DC Central Park, midway on the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier, which was reshaped for the Swatch TTR SIX(6)STAR Roxy Chicken Jam. The girls were pumped and loving the set up as they progressed female riding to unbelievable levels, throwing down technical tricks most had never even attempted.
Cheryl Maas (NED) took home the top spot, followed by Jamie Anderson (USA) in second and Claudia Fliri (AUT) rounding out the top three. All three girls proved they were deserving to stand on the podium, but Cheryl Maas dominated the park with clean style and huge tricks. This was Cheryl’s first Tour result this season and she is now 35th in the rankings.
“It’s my first SIX(6)STAR TTR event, and it’s a good start to my season,” said Maas. “It was fun! It was a bit harder riding the new course down in the low part, but if you saw the tricks, everybody was throwing down. It was a real SIX(6)STAR event in my eyes. Good riders!”
Kelly Clark (USA), however, continues her Tour lead as Jenny Jones (GBR), was unable to come out on top to overtake Kelly for Swatch TTR World No. 1. Jenny rode strong in all of her four runs and finished 4th which moves her into World No. 2.
Jamie Anderson who won last year’s Roxy Chicken Jam in Kaprun has moved into World No. 3 after her podium finish and was excited with her results and positive shift in the rankings:
“I ended up getting second and I’m stoked! It was so much fun today, learning new tricks and riding with all the girls. Just watching everyone was awesome because everyone was riding so good! I got some more TTR points too, and I’m down with that! And Just being here, watching the girls do such good tricks was awesome.”
Claudia Fliri rounds out the Top 5 with her 3rd place finish and sits just behind Elizabeth Beerman who is World No. 5:
“I came here without expectations because of my knee injury from before,” said Fliri, “but I’m super happy that I made the Top 3. Look, I have big smile on my face! And it’s sweet to have more points for TTR.”
The first all-girls, SIX(6)STAR event on the World Snowboard Tour was without a doubt the greatest display of female riding from the world’s best female snowboarders. The Tour Drama has been set and will continue at the Burton European Open in Laax, Switzerland.

Jenny Jones wins slopestyle at the NZ Open (Posted Friday, August 10, 2007 by mattwalder)
Jenny Jones has taken first place in the women's Slopestyle event at the Burton New Zealand Open. She stormed through the Semi-finals above Hana Beaman and Torah Bright to qualify first for the finals. Unfortunately, high winds called a halt to proceedings meaning the Semi-final positions stood as Final placings. Jenny's winning run consisted of a tailslide on the C Box, followed by a 50:50 180 out on the high bar followed by a backside three, followed by front side three and 50:50 on the final rail. Her execution through the entire run was faultless, earning her $5,000 in prize money.
Also placing highly was Posy Dixon, who secured 11th place... Go on the brits!

Jenny Jones finshes 6th in the World (Posted Monday, March 26, 2007 by stu)
Jenny Jones jumps from 18th to 6th at the last TTR event of the Season. Since JJ only had 4 of the 6 results required to maxise her position on the TTR it was down to the HP and SS disciplines at the Roxy Chicken Jam in the US. HP isnt JJ's strongest event by far but managed to scrape 669 points together.
Slopestyle it was all or nothing and in practice Jenny took a nasty slam doing a 760! (see the pic). She managed to pull it back for the SIX(6)STAR TTR event and secure a 4th giving her 1085 points!

JENNY JONES TAKES 3RD AT THE ROXY CHICKEN JAM (Posted Monday, December 18, 2006 by stu)
Kaprun, Austria. A rock-steady slopestyle victory went to 16-year-old Jamie Anderson (USA) this weekend as the Women’s TTR World Snowboard Tour first all-girl 6(SIX) Star event of the season, the
Roxy Chicken Jam Europe, proves women’s snowboarding hits a new level.
Blessed with blue skies and a fun crowd at the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier Park, Kaprun, Austria, Saturday’s main session of 25 top female riders took advantage of the purpose-built slopestyle park featuring a multitude of kickers, rails and boxes to push their creativity, variation and style in a best-run-counts jam. Jamie Anderson (USA) consistently impressed the judges with her solid tricks and consistent runs claiming the 4th Roxy Chicken Jam Europe title with a frontside boardslide-to-fakie, cab 540, frontside 360 and a huge
McTwist at the quarterpipe, winning a Gibson guitar, 10,000 euros and 1000 TTR Ranking points, catapulting her into the TTR World Nr 1 position.
Last year’s Roxy Chicken Jam Europe winner and TTR World Snowboard Tour Champion Cheryl Maas(NED) deservedly took second place with a smooth frontside boardslide-to-fakie, Cab 180 on/backside 360
down the butter-box, huge backside 720 at the big kicker and a backside air at the quarterpipe. The unstoppable Jenny Jones (GBR) gained a podium third with her best run: a boardslide-to-fakie, huge backside 360, frontside 540 nose-grab ending with a backside air at the quarterpipe.
Adding to previous wins in the earlier leg of the Women’s TTR World Snowboard Tour, new TTR Ranking Top 5 entries come from Silvia Mittermueller (GER) newly-ranked at TTR World Nr. 4 and British top rider Laura Berry (GBR) who launches into TTR World Nr. 5 position. The excitement resumes after the Christmas break until the next 6(SIX) Star pinnacle event on the Women’s TTR World Snowboard Tour,

Jenny Jones is World No2 on TTR Tour (Posted Tuesday, April 11, 2006 by stu)
Jenny Jones has finished in 2nd place on the TTR Tour (Ticket To Ride) behind Cheryl Mass, which is an amazing result considering Jenny only did the min 3 events to get a ranking.
Checkout the current ranking
There is just 1 event left called the Candy Jam but it cant change the top 2 results.
So here is how Jenny is mathematically secured into 2nd position. the current standing is as follows:
• 1. Maas, C (426.79)
• 2. Jones, J (381.13)
• 3. Zurek, N (373.84)
• 4. Beaman, H (346.01)
• 5. Anderson, J (329.76)
• 6. Miller, V (295.19)
• 7. Peltonen, M (286.09)
• 8. Waite, A (283.62)
• 9. Mittermueller, S (272.55)
• 10. Bright, T (268.20)
As you see Zurek is in third with 373.84 and if she got first at the Candy Jam she would gain 260pts and drop her worst result. As the TTR women results are calculated on the three best results Zurek would drop her 9th place in the Burton European Open halfpipe and add the 260 points of her Candy Jam win bringing her total points to: 500 (roxyJam)+ 380 (BEO SS)+ 260 (Candy Jam)= 1140 points. These points divided by three events brings Zurek to a TTR point ranking of 380.00. Securing Jenny's second position. By one point yes but a point is a point.
[Rumour has it that the TTR organisers might raise the points for the Candy Jam but lets hope not]
Also if your up in Scotland this weekend keep yor eye out for Jenny, Tina Birbaum, Lesley Mckenna as they are currently staying Aviemore and filming over in the Lecht where apparently there is 2 pretty good kickers set up and a bit of pow...

just writing with updates on what i have been upto. the other week i went to st moritz for the chicken jam , i think this is already been posted for me , came second and was stoked with the result, had some dodgy weather but enjoyed riding and watching the other chicks throw down some snowboard moves. And yes that evening i arrived back in morzine the champage did flow and all ended up in the nightclub had a wicked time. The rest of that week in morzine it snowed abit, rained a bit, snowed a bit rained a bit.
Then i headed to sweden for the candy jam another all girls slopestyle comp run by anna hellman. the course was pretty good the weather was sunny which made for a real fun few days and great riding atmosphere. ( friendly folk in sweden). In the end i came third in the final , happy about that and was really impressed by cheryll and kjesti s riding in the final. it was super tight between the two girls but in the end kjesti won with a 720 and a 540 and went massive off the hip. The parties at the event were brilliant .
now i have travelled up from sweden with some of the girls, tina, cheryll, kjesti, stine, lisa etc to narvik in norway where we are hopefully riding and filming some stuff for the week.
ok cheers jenny.

I got news last week but forgot to post it, but Jenny Jones came 2nd in the Roxy Chicken Jam in Switzerland last week winning $5,000, first place was natasha Zurek winning $12,000 dollars (making her prize winnings for the year in excess of $100,000!)
Jenny's winning run involved backside 3's, frontside 540 indy's, 270's off a curved rail and a front side 360... apparently the champagne was flowing in Morzine on her return...
aussie trip (Posted Wednesday, September 15, 2004 by jennyjones)
Thanks hamish, jono and everyone who sent congrats.
I am stoked with the comp results and have been having a great time here in aus. I just have to point out that the quote about it being the best slopestyle course ever was slightly exagerated on there part, but hey never mind.
I have been lucky with the snow fall here, it has been one of there best seasons in about 10 years. Have been travelling around on the billabong tour bus with a crew of other team riders, it has been a right laugh. Have visited two or three different mountains( hothan thredbow, fallscreek) over the three weeks, enjoyed a spot of freeriding, park and pipe which has been pretty good, some shitty weather and a bit of sun, met some crackin aussies, had a lot of bbq' s and some messy nights out. Have seen kangaroos, joeys, koolas and a load of roadkill. Was heading to nz but ate shit on a jump and have to take off six weeks, so i am finishing my stay in aus with two weeks surfing up the coast, as they say in here no worries mate! jenn. see you back in the uk in october.
Jenny Jones.... back on top - down under (Posted Tuesday, August 31, 2004 by stu)
In an atmosphere best described as tense due to the incredible standard of riding on display English super star Jenny Jones won the women’s division of the 2004 Billabong Slopestyle Jam at Mount Hotham, Victoria late yesterday after being out of action for almost 18 months with a knee injury. Internationals dominated the tournament with American Chris Coulter winning one of the toughest open men’s finals ever staged in Australia and Canadian Craig Beauliey claiming victory in the juniors.
Jones, an experienced professional, held off a late charge from a mix of veteran and up and coming Aussies to defeat Sydney’s North Shore’s Emily Jones with NSW’s Cooma’s Abi Bright rounding out the top three.
"I can't believe it really, some of the young girls hear are riding unreal and to finish on top I am so happy" said Jones after her victory. "It's one of the most fun courses I have ever ridden, especially when the weather improved a bit this afternoon and it got nice and soft."
all the best for 2004 (Posted Friday, January 9, 2004 by jennyjones)

This comes after an amazing year riding in the States winning 2 Vans Triple Crown events in Breckenridge & Mammoth, Board X in London and The Session in Vail.
Unfortunatley Jenny blew her ACL in qualification at the X-Games and subsequently has been going through rehabilitation since March and should be back on track for another great winter.
Jenny has just spent 2 weeks in Sri Lanka surfing and should now be in Australia until she returns for Board X.

i had a great start to the season this year and have enjoyed myself tons however at the practice of the x games in aspen i injuried myself on one of the jumps and later found out back in vail that i tore my acl, "bollocks" was my repsonse at the time i think.
Pretty bummed but trying to stay positive, you have to take the bad with the good and i know i am not the first to go through this sort of thing, so chin up.
i have had an operation here in vail and am now one week into physio ( staying in vail for another two months and then continuing rehab at home in bristol). look forward to riding again probably about six months depending on how everything goes just going to wait and see. until then i am going to busy myself with other stuff and get into some surfin i think.
Thankyou to everyone who has emailed and phoned with support as it really has made me smile, much appreciated. SUPER GOOD LUCK to everyone going to the brits it sounds like it will be a good laugh. Please have a dance on that pole for me as anyone who has been in deux alps in the summer will know that a vodka orange, the pole and myself have had some very intimate times. cheers jenn

personal news (Posted Thursday, February 14, 2002 by jennyjones)
just writing to say having a great time here in vail, have been here three weeks and have a week left. Just celebrated mardy gra, which was a laugh (girls have to show there breasts in exchange for a set of beads from around the males neck seemed to be the long running tradition of the evening, so you can imagine how the night went??).
Had a chance to see the olympic flame travel through vail and well done to lesley just making it to the games is a huge achievement, good luck for the rest of the year.
Competed in a few local comps here in vail and breckenridge, slopestyles placed first in each. However some great female riders backside 720, from one the american girls would have won it, but she didn't quite land it, bloody impressive though.
Knocked myself out the other day just suffered a massive head ache and some throwing up, all good now though.( like to say it was doing something EXTREME however simply caused from a heeledge catch at speed)
Park here in vail is good,big clean kickers, some huge rails, including a rainbow that i have yet to make, but have managed to eat shit a fare few times. Tons of log slides in the trees here, which are a right laugh. Nearly eveyday a sunny day, not complaining but looking forward to snow, hope everyone is enjoying there season cheers jenn, off to europe next week, not sure what snow conditions to expect??
NZ National Champs (Posted Sunday, September 9, 2001 by jennyjones)
Hi everyone...quick post to say that I just won the Womens Halfpipe at the New Zealand National Championships. I am well stoked and will be back in the UK later this week after being down here for the past month. See you at Totally Board in Manchester on the 13th October
New Zealand (Posted Monday, August 20, 2001 by jennyjones)
I am down in New Zealand at the moment with Ryan Davis checking out their winter. I would have liked to enter the Wanaka Big Air but I have been ill for about a week now with flu and chest infection, I think I am gradually getting there but it seems to be taking longer that I thought. I have only been up the hill twice which has been frustrating. Nz is a great place I just wish I felt better so I could enjoy it more. Met up with Steve Scott for a bit, he is off on a tour tomorrow but seems well.
Ankle is doing well and haven't had to much trouble riding on it, the park is petty nice, 4 main kickers and some rails. There are also 3 pipes only one is for public, the others are for campers which sucks a bit. I had a few goes in the pipe and their were 50 japanese and me which was kinda funny. They are friendly though and I have met up with a group of long stays in the hostel. They range from scottish, swedish, alaskan and japanese. I'm here until the 10th September and then competing at the Totally Board event (Manchester) in October...
Sports Woman Launch Party (Posted Wednesday, August 1, 2001 by stu)
Myself and Jenny were invited to the Launch party of "The Sports Woman" a magazine dedicated to sports women. We went along with Oakley and Extreme Sports Channel (Jenny's Sponsors). The magazine is looking to do an article on snowboarding and in particluar Jenny which should hopefully come out this year.
There were many other sporting athletes there including the British womens Rugby Captain and Triathlete Michelle Dillon, European Champion who incidently only learnt to swim at the age of 23! (she is now 28). Available at most magazine outlets. Picture courtesy of sportsbeatimages.com (Grieg)
