The latest incarnation of the Jib Battle will go down 7-9 December in Oslo, Norway.
The first Jib battle was arranged at Varingskollen, Oslo in 2003. We have arranged 6 jibbatles since then in Norway and Sweden with riders representing Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Holland, England, Austria and Iceland. Profiled riders like Andreas Wiig, Mikkel Bang, Hans Åhlund, Risto Ruokola, Marius Otterstad, Christian Halland, Julian Karlsen, Torstein Horgmo, Nicky Wieveg, Henning Martinsen, Fredrik Evensen, Andreas Moen, Erik Johan Bothner among others have fought for their country and the title of the jibbatle. Norway has won it 6 times. The jibbattle has had a rich amount of media coverage over the years in Playboard, Onboard, Methodmag, Friflyt, Ultrasport, NRK (tv), TV2 (tv), TVNorge (tv), The Voice (tv), Mooks Live to mention a few.
It is important to ASKseb.com to arrange the Jib Battle, with the test demo, at a central location that is spectator friendly and easy access. The event is therefore arranged in Oslo this year. Oslo is an ideal location for the Jib Battle given its location. It is close to Gardermoen airport and has nightclubs, hotels and makes it easy for media and sponsors to attend the event. ASKseb.com are excited to present Jernbanetorget as the host for the event given that Jernbanetorget is in the heart of Oslo with a lot of potential to make this year Jib Battle one of the greatest. This was also the location for last years Jib Battle witch turned out to be a great success. A lot of creativity and “outside the box thinking" will be put into this year’s event, so for those of you that have witnessed the previous Jib Battles will not be disappointed. The idea is to create an intimate and spectacular arena for both riders and spectators. This also enables great photo and video coverage. The event will be covered by medias like TVNorge, Ultra Sport, Friflyt, NRK, TV2, Methodmag and Tacky! The arena for this years Battle:
