Milan, Paris and New York set new trends on an almost daily basis. Even if those trends are occasionally more than questionable, there is no doubt about who is bringing up the new styles. You also get those fixed stars on the red carpet of style in snowboarding. That’s why the final of the 5th Hochkönig Style Championship Tour is once again on the QParks Tour agenda. On March 9th, 2013, it’s all about massive style, sizable prize money and precious points for the QParks Tour overall ranking at the Blue Tomato Kings Park Hochkönig in Mühlbach – It’s Time to Shine!
The 5th edition of the TTR 2* event, the Hochkönig Style Championship Tour, is once again part of the QParks Tour. Next to the title in the Hochkönig Style Championship Tour, the riders will battle for substantial prize money of altogether EUR 1.250.-, tons of goodies and precious points for the overall QParks Tour ranking. Like last year, the slopestyle contest will be completed by a “Best Trick” ranking, in which all snowboarders can snatch themselves some extra pocket money in the form of EUR 100,-! Naturally, a perfect contest day at the Blue Tomato Kings Park Hochkönig would be nothing without fresh beats and a delicious BBQ. You still think that’s not enough to pay the Blue Tomato Kingspark a visit on the 9th of March? Well then, let Flo Galler, winner of the last Hochkönig Style Championship, give you a few more reasons, why you couldn’t possibly say no this event!
„The Hochkönig Style Championship was an awesome contest, the starting grid was packed with friends of mine and speaker Felix Prankl did a staggering job entertaining the crowd. And to top it all off, the audience was treated to a freestyle rap performance by Jonel Fricke! The Style Championship is definitely worth a visit, at the very least for its unique atmosphere.” Asked if he thought he will be able to defend his title this year – considering that he spent his entire summer surfing – Flo adds: „Snowboarding’s like riding a bike, you can’t forget how to do it / you can’t unlearn it.”
