The International German FIS halfpipe Championships-Oct 3rd at the SNOW PARK in Wittenberg (GER)
Believe it or not, but the German FIS halfpipe Championships are back after 4 years and will be held on Oct 3rd, 2007. They will be, for the first time ever, held in an indoor facility (SNOW PARK) which is situated in Wittenberg northern Germany. Due to its very early date, the contest will be used primarily as a warm up and training session for the riders to kick off their season. The local German team have naturally already signed up, as did the English, Belgian, Dutch and Norwegians. The German team will consist of Christophe Schmidt (Turin 07 Eigth Place), Xaver Hoffmann (World Cup Winner 03) aswell as Allessandro Mancini, Maximilian Gschaider, Ethan Morgan and Nils Storch. The event organizers have also set up a bus shuttle service from Hamburg to Wittenberg and back, a bike exhibition show and surprise, surprise, a party from the local radio station. Should be a good start into the season!
