Mild temperatures make working on the giant construction site in the Bergisel Stadium quite comfortable. The snow needed for the biggest stadium kicker in the world is already produced and will be applied to the monstrous steel construction at the beginning of next week. The Swatch TTR 6star Event will happen independently from any weather on Saturday, 05.12.09.
Contest fever is rising amongst riders
All 16 pro riders competing in the main contest and the 12 rookies are well prepared and very desperate for this season’s highlight. Stars like Peetu Piiroinen, Travis Rice or Pat Moore will have to hold their ground against the strongest riders of the planet.
Legendary The Hives (amongst others known for their unbeatable live performances) and scandal rappers K.I.Z. will take care of the right rhythm. Their Swedish rock and Berlin rap will add to the well known Air & Style atmosphere and turn the Bergisel Stadium into a boiling cauldron.
So the Billabong Air & Style 2009/II with straight jump, top stars and the loudest fans is getting to be the best Air & Style in history!
All of those who cannot make it into the Bergiselstadium won’t have to do without the Billabong Air & Style 09/II. The spectacle will be broadcasted live on various TV stations all over Europe and on top of that in the internet. Information on broadcasting times can be found online on air-style.com. There the event, including the live performance of The Hives will be broadcasted on 05.12.09 from 7:45 p.m. local time (CET).
