UFOs in the Olympic Stadium? Unbelieveable, but true!
First Freestyle Snowmobile Contest in Germany at the Nokia Air & Style 07 in the Olympic Stadium, Munich
Is it possible to carry out a backflip with a snowmobile weighting 200 kg? An answer to that question will be given at the Nokia Air & Style 07 on December 1st at the Olympic Stadium Munich. The event is staging a freestyle snowmobile contest (FSX), for the first time ever in Germany. The Nokia Air & Style is once again about to make history.
The first snowmobiles, propelled by track at the rear and skis up front for steering, have been designed more than 90 years ago, but have been used for jumping only since 10 years. Now the young, fascinating and spectacular sport is coming to Germany: On December 1st the world’s best FSX riders are competing for the prize money of 50.000 Euro at the Nokia Air & Style 07 at Munich’s Olympic Stadium. The final four of the X Games 2007 are among the participants. The three participants of the superfinal will be determined in a k.o. format at the all new round parcour. If it is possible to carry out backflips with the snowmonsters remains to be seen. Anyway, excitement and spectacular action will be guaranteed.
At this years’ event the spectators can, of course, again expect snowboard action at its best. Top stars as DAVID BENEDEK, RISTO MATTILA and ANTTI AUTTI surely will challenge last year’s champion TRAVIS RICE. The Nokia Air & Style 07 promises a thrilling spectacle. Besides the breathtaking sports action there is also first class music action entertaining the masses: the Swedish punk rocker THE HIVES and two more international top music acts will move the crowd.
The ticket presale has already begun on www.air-style.com and www.muenchenticket.de. Tickets purchased via the Air & Style website can easily be printed out at home by print@home without any further costs for shipping. The site also offers much more information on the event.
