[Last year’s burn Nordic jamboree looked a blast, and with a riders list that Thor himself would be proud of, the upcoming bKOTN looks set to go BANG.]
As you’ll know if you checked our earlier announcement of the upcoming burn King of the North, from March 21-22 the Norwegian resort of Trysil will play host to a staggering gathering of Scandi shred talent. There’s a mix of invited riders (who each get to nominate two others to come join the party) blended with a host of wildcards to form a riders’ list that basically reads like a who’s who of Northern European snowboard talent.
Here are the confirmed riders so far – more heavy hitters are expected to be announced in the coming days – so make sure you tune into the live stream on March 21 (for the rail contest) and March 22 (for the Big Air).
