After a successful kick-off last year, Burton has announced the dates for the Burton AM Tour 2006/07.
This tour is the ideal start for amateur riders with the hope of becoming a professional snowboarder. Up-and-coming riders will have the opportunity to showcase their skills, to win the Burton AM Tour Champion title, and also collect points for the TTR World Ranking system to be listed on the same ranking as the pros (www.ttrworldtour.com).
The Burton AM Tour will start in October 2006 and continues until the end of April 2007. The tour covers 18 stops in 15 European countries, including Latvia, Estonia and Bulgaria. All riders born after 1987 are allowed to participate.
This year Nixon will be the main sponsor of the Burton AM Tour and will be offering an award for the overall standout rider of each event.
