Only a week to go before we kickstart the first edition of TTR 3-star Gothenburg Rail Battle in Sweden on 30 October 2010. The event is the only rail event on the TTR tour and will be held in downtown Gothenburg on the Swedish west coast.

The event area will be occupied the coming week with constructor workers that build the 25m long, 10m wide and 12m high steel monster that the riders will use as a Battlefield . The rail soldiers will fight for 10.000 USD and a bunch of TTR points...

On the non riding part of the event there will be great parties including both the Pirate Production premiere on the opening party on Friday and the Nitro Snowboards premiere on the afterparty on Saturday. There will also be a full on Brand village incl a mini railarena open to ride for everyone during the day and brands like Volcom, DC, Etnies, EFX, among others will showcase their latest products, do giveaways etc. And of course our main partner Monster Energy will be on site in full force sampling pure energy!

On top of this the event will be headlined by Swedish Hip Hop legends LOOPTROOP ROCKERS wich will put on a full on Live set direct after the finals on a stage next to the railarena.

For all you guys an girls that can ́t make it to Gothenburg the whole event will be broadcasted live on
