Sillieres, who had placed second in the first slopestyle contest, came out successfully of a private duel for victory with her team mate Marion Haerty, who had finished third on Thursday.

Sillieres took home the close win with 135.33 points (Haerty earned 135.00) for her run consisting of cab 540 mute to bs 360 tail over the two kickers as well as cab 180 on to fs 180 off, fs boardslide to 50-50 to bs 180 off in the jib section.

Maria Hidalgo (SPA, 132.33) rounded out the podium as third.

Horak, a World Cup experienced shredder from the Czech Republic, stomped a cab 540 underflip and a bs 720 inverted double nose grab over the two-kicker line while impressing with some technical stuff on the jibbing line including a pretty neat sw boardslide.

Earning 166.00 points he relegated Sebastien Konijnenberg (FRA, 157.00) and Thursday's runner-up Erik Bastiaansen (NED, 156.33) to second and third respectively.

The next two slopestyle contests of the Europa Cup tour will take place in Vars, France on January 7th and 8th.
