On Saturday 24. February the famous “Blue Tomato Run to the Hill” Contest will take place in Obertauern. Snowboard men & ladies, as well as the freeskiers will fight for 5000 Euro Price money and the “best trick award on the wallride”, which will be a surfboard for each group! Rider names like Ville Uotila, Ilkka Ojansivu, Flo Mausser, last years winner Herby Thaler, Max Weickl and young gun Roli Scharmer promise an awesome contest, as well the freeskiers and snowboard ladies have international riders on the start! The best 5 of the Snowboarder men & ladies get a fixed starting point for the Austrian Masters, the best freeskier gets a wildcard for the “New School Picknick” on the 16th of March in Zauchensee. Additionally the best 4 snowboarders and the best 6 freeskiers get wildcards for the Absolutpark Springbattle.
The set-up in the Longplaypark will be specially reshaped for the contest and will satisfy the needs of the riders with obstacles like kicker, wallride, long straightbox and a corner. Moreover the contest format will be special too; the riders start in heats of 4 riders and only the best two make it to the next round. The final will be held as a jam session, in that way every rider of the final can show his entire skills! The prize giving is held in the contest area directly after the finals. In the evening everyone will be in “Monkeys Heaven” for an unforgettable After-Contest Party!
