The first Jib battle was arranged at Varingskollen, Oslo in 2003. We have
arranged 6 jibbatles since then in Norway and Sweden with riders
representing Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Holland, England, Austria and
Iceland. Profiled riders like Andreas Wiig, Mikkel Bang, Hans Åhlund, Risto
Ruokola, Marius Otterstad, Christian Halland, Julian Karlsen, Torstein
Horgmo, Nicky Wieveg, Henning Martinsen, Fredrik Evensen, Andreas Moen, Erik
Johan Bothner among others have fought for their country and the title of
the jibbatle. Norway has won it 6 times. The jibbattle has had a rich amount
of media coverage over the years in Playboard, Onboard, Methodmag, Friflyt,
Ultrasport, NRK (tv), TV2 (tv), TVNorge (tv), The Voice (tv), Mooks Live to
mention a few.
It is important to ASKseb.com to arrange the Jib Battle, with the test demo,
at a central location that is spectator friendly and easy access. The event
is therefore arranged in Oslo this year. Oslo is an ideal location for the
Jib Battle given its location. It is close to Gardermoen airport and has
nightclubs, hotels and makes it easy for media and sponsors to attend the
event. ASKseb.com are excited to present Jernbanetorget as the host for the
event given that Jernbanetorget is in the heart of Oslo with a lot of
potential to make this year Jib Battle one of the greatest. This was also
the location for last years Jib Battle witch turned out to be a great
success. A lot of creativity and “outside the box thinking” will be put into
this year’s event, so for those of you that have witnessed the previous Jib
Battles will not be disappointed. The idea is to create an intimate and
spectacular arena for both riders and spectators. This also enables great
photo and video coverage. The event will be covered by medias like TVNorge,
Ultra Sport, Friflyt, NRK, TV2, Methodmag and Tacky!
The arena for this years Battle:
The Jibbattle is getting more and more popular every year, and that is why
we are going to have a qualifying round this winter where riders with big
potential can come and try to qualify for next years Jibbattle. This event
will take place at A Park in Drammen ski resort. The 5 top qualifiers will
sum up a team that will challenge the pro riders at next years event. This
is a golden opportunity for young armatures to show what they are made of.
This event will take place in the beginning of February.
This year, we also want to include the ski jibbers in the Jibbattle and as a
soft start, we will invite a team of the best riders from Norway and Sweden.
Ski jibbers from all over the world will also have the opportunity to
qualify for next years event through the Jibbattle qualifying round in
