La Mongie, Tourmalet – France. 23rd of March.
Here we are! In few days, the first edition of the Nike 6.0 Twisted Trick Tournament will finally take place in the Pyrenean resort of La Mongie, part of the Domaine du Tourmalet, from the 27th of March till the 3rd of April. 13 riders will take part to this session, based on twisted obstacles, freshly coming out of ho5′s Xavier Marcou and Christoph Weber’s minds.
The jumps concept is still secretly being held in the mountains up there. Let’s just say it’s going to be entertaining… On Monday, organisers Xavier, Christoph and Florent just had the confirmation that Gjermund Braaten & Markus Keller will also join the troops for the session, so everybody is super stoked with such a great riders list and we bet they just had beers to celebrate this.
The riders invited are:
Victor DE LE RUE
Gérôme “Coin-Coin” MATHIEU
Check back soon for updates during the week!
