Last Saturday, the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn welcomed a bunch of snowboarders at bright sunshine for the Oakley Talent Days. 20 highly motivated riders got up on the mountain to improve their skills at the pro coaching with the Oakley team riders Tom Klocker and Max Buri. It was all about having fun as you can see from the nice photos and the video edit. Now it’s all about the online Talent Voting – let the battle for a brand-new Oakley Airbrake goggle begin!
On Saturday, April 21st, 2012, the Oakley Talent Days in the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn passed off successfully. At bright sunshine, the riders were really excited to improve their park skills. Both Oakley pro coaches Tom Klocker and Max Buri were there with help and advice for the highly motivated snowboarders. The day began with a short riders meeting in the Easy Park. After dividing the group into beginners and advanced riders, the freshly shaped Boxes and Kickers of the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn were examined. The advanced group rocked the Downrail together with pro coach Tom Klocker while the beginner group tried some new tricks on the Flat-Down Box under the guidance of Oakley team rider Max Buri. The two pro coaches were obviously stoked about the motivation of their group members, Tom Klocker: “At the Downrail, all riders showed their best tricks and all of them took the big kickers as well”. Max Buri was also excited about the commitment of his group: “It was really great fun because all riders were very motivated and all of them thanked us for the cool day. I am super stoked!”
After the pro coaching, which was over way too soon for some participants, the day came to an end at the signing session with Tom Klocker and Max Buri in the Subway Shop Intersport Bründl in Kaprun. Alongside some chilled drinks for all participants, the best two riders from each group who made the most progress were rewarded with Oakley goggles and Oakley T-shirts. Matthias Nagel, travelled a long way to get here, was one of the outstanding riders at the beginners group: “As I live quite far away from the mountains, I can’t go snowboarding that often. Therefore, it was very good to get some useful explanations for the tricks. I really learned a bunch of new tricks from the coaches.”
