The World Rookie Tour is becoming more and more of a success every year, growing bigger and better as they go along.

The Protest World Rookie Fest in Livigno has some novelties coming up for 2010. As the first youth event ever it will be held carbon neutral, using renewable energy and supports traditional agricultural activities and mountain forest maintenance in the region of the event.

The other big news especially for the participating rookies from all the world is that besides the four tickets for the finals in Ischgl that are given out, the winner of this event will also be invited to TTR 6star The Oakley Arctic Challenge in March! No wonder 100 rookies, amongst them Staale Sandbach, Seppe Smith, Gjermund Braathen, Sarka Pancochova and Dimi De Jong have already confirmed their attendance and are looking forward to the event that will be running from 16-20 January.
