The Natural Born Riders Tour presented by Bop-It Extreme returns in 2006 with freestyle mayhem to give you a snow fix before you head off to the slopes!
The NBR Tour was designed to encourage competition in the UK scene as well as giving newcomers the chance to get involved: the event is free to enter once slope fees have been paid and all entries receive an NBR goodie bag with sponsors swag!
This year the NBR Tour is supported by leading industry brands including Oakley, Armada, Vans, Pro-Tec, Vestal Watches and Relentless not forgetting title sponsor Bop It Extreme! All these guys will be bringing crew down to come and check out the action whilst all the time keeping an eye out for new talent hidden in the UK scene.
Also supporting the event are media partners Snowboard UK, Dark Summer, SCUK, Natives and the Extreme Sports Channel.
This year the tour will consist of three legs at the following times and locations:
- 17th November: NBR Tour Leg 1 – Castleford SNO!zone
- 18th November: NBR Tour Leg 2 – Sheffield Ski Village
- 24th November: NBR Tour Leg 3 and Final – Milton Keynes SNO!zone
As per previous years the top three finalists will qualify for the grand final at MK. (MK will also host a qualifier) The jam format from previous years will also remain with the top eight qualifiers competing in a two run slope style final to make the Grand final.
