Home Run & Highest Ollie at BRITS 09

Red Bull Home Run is Back & NIKE 6.0 sets the Highest Ollie Challenge!

Only a week to go before the BRITS 09 gets underway in Laax, Switzerland and in preparation the pistes are being groomed, fun parks lovingly shaped and the Après Arena’s skilfully assembled. This year will also see the return of the much loved Red Bull Home Run and new for this year the NIKE 6.0 Highest Ollie Challenge. Leading hardware brands Ride, DC, Salomon, K2, Lines Skis and Volkl will also be on hand throughout the week to offer FREE demo testing!

NIKE 6.0 ‘Who’s Got Pop’ Highest Ollie Challenge
The NIKE 6.0 crew have joined forces with the BRITS to challenge the UK’s snowboarding community to see who has the ‘Greatest Pop’ and set a new UK highest ollie record. The challenge is open to all BRITS wristband holders and will take place at the bottom of the hill in the Après Session Arena on Wednesday 1st April. A slap up Swiss feast for the winner and their crew along with the fame and glory is up for grabs and there’s even free 20th birthday cake for everyone taking in the action.

Red Bull Home Run Returns
The cherry on the top for the BRITS extracurricular activities comes in the form of the Red Bull Home Run. Back by popular demand for 2009 the en masse elbows out race from the top of the mountain to the Crap Bar five miles below brings a whole new definition to the term, thigh-burn! The Home Run is open to all BRITS wristband holders and will finish the BRITS week off in true ‘Chinese Downhill’ fashion on Friday 3rd April.

Demo Village
Leading hardware brands Ride, DC, Salomon, K2, Lines Skis and Volkl will be laying on their full range of ski and snowboard hardware to test throughout the BRITS week. The offer is FREE to all BRITS wristband holders, with no obligation to buy. Simply stroll through the Demo Village of tents at the après sessions to see what takes your fancy and the helpful crew will set you up for the next day’s riding.
