Tom Pelley Wins Australia's Premiere Snowboarding Event - Burton Cattlemans Rail Jam 2010 (11-Jul-10)

Mt Buller, Australia, July 11, 2010 - Australia's best known snowboarders

Australia's best snowboarders put on a show for the 500+ strong spectators who braved the cold tempretures for the 5th Annual Cattleman's Rail Jam at Mt Buller. Presented by Burton Snowboards, the Cattleman's Rail Jam is Australia's premiere snowboarding rail event attracting the countries best snowboarders who battle it out for the $7,000 prize pool under lights in the Mt Buller village square.

Under wild weather, it was Bright's Tom Pelly who took out the title impressing judges with an array of tricks all night including a backside 270 on, 270 of and an onslaught of twizels including a never seen before gap to 50-50 frontside twizel. After taking a hard fall on his last hit of the night, Pelley dislocated his shoulder which landed him in hospital. Despite the injury, Pelley was at the after party and in high spirits. "I'm pumped on finally taking out Cattleman's. I've had some bad luck in the past, and even some this year with my shoulder. However I am happy to have been able to put down enough tricks to take it out." 

Second place was taken out by Mt Buller local Robbie Walker who is a two time past winner of the event. Although he fought hard for the hat-trick, Walker couldn't match Pelley on the night. The best trick was awarded to Matt Sedunary who impressed judges with an "inward 270 board slide" on the center hand rail.
