Arnette gets to the Air & Style with Sani Alibabic and Torstein Horgmo
On Saturday 2nd December, snowboarding and freestyle motoX star riders will showcase their skills at the Olympia Stadium in Munich, Germany.
After the first edition, back in 1993, it was clear that the Air & Style would be one of the most important contests ever. As it was last year, the contest will take place in the Olympia Stadium, Munich, but will show lager kickers and ramps to allow an unreal show! To be sure that everything will be great, the organizer has invited only the world’s best 16 riders, including the Olympic gold medalist Shaun White and two of the Arnette teamriders, Sani Alibabic and Torstein Horgmo.
The contest will use the “KO System”, where the riders will fight for the victory with a head to head elimination system. The show, that will have epic proportions, will also include the FMX competition, in the same arena. Moreover, not to allow the public to get anoyed, this Air & Style will have the live music performance of the Seeed, Milbrun and Billy Talent.
The Arnette teamriders will be:
Sani Alibabic, from Austria, 27 years old. Last season was the winner of the Austrian Masters Slopestyle, and could get a 5th place at the Air & Style. He is always wearing a Destroyer google.
Torsten Horgmo, 19 years old from Norway, was elected best rookie in the past Air & Style, and has won Oneill Pro Freestyle di Avoriaz 06. Besides, he has been one of the rulers in every contest he has entered over the past season. Torsten chooses the Tracer goggle for his riding.
