[Last year's pipe finals were insane. Relive the sickness.]
It’s one pretty much one month till the Winter X Games Europe hits Tignes once more – and now the’ve announced the first batch of invited riders to gee you up for the carnival of awesome.
March 16-18 2011 will see a batch of previous Winter X winners rub shoulders with Olympic medallists and other heavy hitting shredders at the second edition of the Winter X Games Europe.
Once again, ESPN and CANAL + will be making sure the action is piped direct to your living room via TV or the internet to enjoy the slopestyle and superpipe shenanigans that are on the cards. But who’ll be throwing down?
These are the riders whose tickets are already booked… Torah Bright, Kelly Clark, Torstein Horgmo, Jenny Jones and Louie Vito, but you know there’s gonna be more shredders tagged onto that list any minute.
Louie Vito couldn’t be more stoked to hit up the Winter X Games Europe: “X Games is the biggest contest of the year. Going to X Games, you can always expect a perfect set up and the best riders, and now that we have two – one in Aspen and now in Tignes – I couldn’t be more stoked be able to compete in both!”
As is the norm with this snowboarding gig, the invite list is subject to change. All that double corking off hunks of ice ain’t no picnic, so check the ESPN Winter X Games Europe page for updates.
