Premiere Loaded with Top Names

From October 9 through 11, the historic Berlin-Tempelhof Airport will once again provide the backdrop for some high flying. During the premiere of freestyle.berlin, the world's best athletes will be competing in two equivalent qualification starting lineups on Friday and Saturday. In the Snowboard, Freeski, and Skateboard categories, the athletes will be vying for a place in the finals on Sunday and a $79,000 prize purse. The starting lineups were drawn today. A spectacular start is guaranteed for the first-ever freestyle.berlin event, with favorite top-ranked riders such as Eero Ettala (FIN), Jon Olsson (SWE), and Sandro Dias (BRA) participating in the qualifications round on Friday. Without a doubt, the first high point of the event will take place on Saturday evening, when athletes from the four sports categories will go up against each other in the Ultimate Crossover Session. The Finals and Superfinals on Sunday will offer spectators an all-time highlight in terms of sporting events. Even the social and entertainment program surrounding freestyle.berlin promises a weekend nobody will want to miss. An entire armada of DJs and live bands from all over Europe, the latest and greatest from the freestyle sports scene, and afterparties on the grounds round out the awesome sports program. And because much of the spectator and competition area is covered, there's no chance bad weather will get in the way of the event. Snowboard: Home-field advantage for three riders Among the snowboarders, the winner of freestyle.ch Zurich 2009, Eero Ettala from Finland, will be challenging his competition. To start things off, two Germans, Ethan Morgan and Christoph Schmidt, will be competing on Friday. The third German snowboarder of the bunch, Elias Elhardt, will be putting his skills to the test on Saturday when he goes head-to-head with the third-place winner at freestyle.ch, Christian Haller (SUI). Will Morgan, Schmidt, and Elhardt be able to use their home-field advantage to make it to the Finals on Sunday?

Watch out the Zimtstern Crew with the winner of the Air&Style, Colin Frei. They will have a Snowboard Competition, a Miniramp Session (take your Skateboards with you!), a promomotion stand and the Pirates movie premiere. Last but not least you will enjoy the Zimtstern Bar at the freestyle.Berlin.
