Ride the Stairway 2009

The countdown has started – only a few days until take-off

In exactly one week the fourth snowboard, freeski and mountainbike comp in Nordrheinwestfalen, Germany will start.

About 75 cubic metres of artificial snow will be prepared for the rail contest on Feb 6 and 7. The competition will be taking place in the historical surroundings of Solingen-Gräfrath.

The snowboarder’s setup will be a 3x3m kinked ledge and a quarter with a 2m extension to “wall and stall” of 4 meters! The jib-session is open for amateur and professional riders from all over Germany who can do their best to kill the setup.

The following prizes are up for grabs:
1st place: a weekend in Munich at the “Oktoberfest” and a Nokia N95 mobile phone
2nd place: 300,- EUR
3rd place: 200,- EUR
