    Sean Pettit was barely short of the victory last year. But this year, Oakley’s Canadian Ski Star made sure that the backcountry in Vars was thoroughly slain with a double cliff drop at the top of his run, before hitting one of the ten shaped kickers on the course to spin a technical cork 7 – and finishing with a huge 360 off a natural feature. The result was a resounding victory at the third edition of Red Bull Linecatcher and Sean’s new coronation.
