The Burton U.S. Open will be quite decisive for some of the pros this year. Especially, being the last TTR 6 Star event of the season 2010/2011!. In male TTR ranking, the BUSOs will decide the Top-5 Men Ranking. After being unofficially (but mathematically) already clear, that Peetu Piiroinen is 3rd time TTR World Tour Champion, it is now between Seppe Smits (BEL), Sebastien Toutant (CAN) and Mark McMorris (CAN), Iouri Podlatchikov (SUI) and Christian Haller (SUI), to score as much as possible. For the women, everything is open yet!  Jamie Anderson (USA) and Kelly Clark (USA) will be competing for 1st place. Jamie, who is current female TTR World Tour Champion, also leads the BGOS at the moment. Other potential competitors will be Cilka Sadar (SLO), Kjersti Øestgaard-Buaas (NOR), or Sina Candrian (SUI).
