In weather better suited for a day at the beach, the Roxy Chicken Jam concluded at Mammoth Mountain. The women of snowboarding took center stage this weekend, Kelly Clark threw down a massive frontside 9, securing her spot atop the podium while taking home a nice $15,000 for her efforts. With an impressive bag of tricks, Jamie Anderson won slopestyle, also adding $15,000 to her bank account.
But the big winner of the weekend was Roxy team rider Enni Rukajrvi from Finland. With her result from the RCJ she secured the 2009/2010 TTR world snowboarding championship. Her hard work and successful season brought good fortune to her wallet, winning $50,000.

Kelly Clark won superpipe at the RCJ by throwing down a major frontside 9 and frontside 7 to cab 7. She had the highest amplitude and the most difficult run of the group. In a surprise move, 2010 Olympic gold medalist in snowboard halfpipe Torah Bright did a demonstration run at the end of the event to show her support for the many amazing riders at the RCJ.
In the 3rd annual and most important Mascot Competition at the RCJ, the NPG Cable Cheetah (worn by Mammoth local Trevor Jacob) fought his way to #1 with a front 5 and inverted front 7. Best trick of the furry battle went to last year's winner, the Hot Dog (Mammoth local Luke Wynen) with his McTwist.
