Where: Whistler, Canada
Do you remember this week’s post on the Billabong Ante Up live webcast? Well, you can still head over to billabongpro.com to see all of the action go down. However, yours truly Onboard will feature the live webcast, too! The plan is to stream the action on Saturday, 26 June, from 8pm to midnight (CET). This is a great way to escape the general football craze that has its tight grip over Europe.
For some more information on the event read on, I pasted some of the shit from the old post into this one. Makes it look like I actually worked hard, you know?
With all the crazy progression that’s been going down lately (looking at you, Torstein Horgmo) we’re pumped about the first 5-Star TTR event of the season that’ll be shaking foundations in the Camp of Champions terrain park at Whistler Blackcomb from June 26-30 – The Billabong Ante Up.
The rider list reads like a Who’s Who of shit hot steezers, with Scotty Lago, Triple Torstein, Seb Toutant and many more signed up and ready to shralp. Billabong’s live webcast team will be bringing action from the qualifying to the finals, unique rider interviews and the awards ceremony through the pipes and direct to your machine.
Riders will be hitting up a jump-to-rail feature that’s being constructed as we speak by Arena Snowparks Steve Petrie. He explaing: “The jump is going to be an 85-95 foot step-over style jump with a slightly elevated take-off. We’re going to gap out the area behind the take-off so it should be great for all the riders. The Push.ca rail set-up includes a 50-foot staircase with Down-Flat-Down Combi Box on one side and a DFD rail on the other.”
The Billabong Ante Up schedule is as follows…
June 25 – Rider Practice
June 26 – Live Event Coverage (weather dependent)
June 27-30 – Bad weather contingency days
