The fourth stop of the Nike Chosen Series were held in Hoch Ybrig in the foot hills of the Swiss Alps, and got underway despite being pushed back a day due to bad weather.

The riders that made the trip to the NBC Snowpark were nonetheless determined to not let the challenging conditions get in the way of the invite to the Nike Sessions that would be granted to the winner of the day’s jam.

With only occasional breaks in the cloud, visibility gave the riders an added challenge over the 15m kicker and bonk obstacle, leaving the 3 judges (DBK, Raphi Rocha and local shaper Matthias Burch) to make a call to skip qualifiers and run a straight up final with all riders.

As ‘Eleven’ pro rider Mike ‘Aemka’ Knobel threw down the music and MC Sam Messerli hyped up the crowd it was clear that the riding standard was pretty high for this AM contest as Markus Mathis laid out a back 5 and a back 7 in his the warm up run.

With a Nike Sessions ticket on the table all riders upped their game in what was a great atmosphere in the park, local Arvet Fuchs styled a Super man front flip and his first ever backside double cork and Roger Schuler held onto a switch back stale almost all the way to the ground.

Making the trip up from Berne, Markus Mathis took the MVP of the day with a consistent array of tricks throughout the jam including a back 10 double cork. Markus will travel to the Nike Chosen Sessions in April to session with the Nike Pros and compete against all the Series winners to find ultimate Chosen.
