White Style slopestyle comp on January 30th in Leogang

A lot of folk moan about not being able to ride in the Winter with all the snow and what not. But that doesn’t seem to bother the mob down at Leogang, they turn the snow into downslopes, truck in some wooden booters and invite the best slopestylers around to rip it up.

(Winter slopestyle jams have come a long way since Lawlor and O’ Brien launched themselves at a quarter pipe at 60 miles an hour back in 2001, read the Endtroducing in Dirt 81 for the full story)

Furthermore, three wildcards are given to very special guests that will be announced soon.

The whole track is not only shaped out of snow, but also pimped with some nice wooden obstacles. The course is located right next to the Schantei ski-lift station, which is pretty close to the town centre of Leogang. The riders have to qualify on Friday afternoon for the big finals, which take place a bit later, at 08:30 pm. The ten finalists complete two runs to determine the winners of 4.000 Euros overall prize money. Afterwards a hard rocking party will heat up the riders as well as the fans until the early morning.
