PENKEN BATTLE 2017 – Let’s Battle ‘The Hoff’

The third stop on the QParks Snowboard Tour will go down on 14/01/2017 in the Vans Penken Park, Mayrhofen/Austria…

In mid-January, all eyes are on your best tricks at the legendary Vans Penken Park! Once again a team of international & professional judges has to decide who will bag the princely cash prize of about 1,200€ and which riders will pave their way for a pro career at the second edition of the Penken Battle. In order to guarantee a completely relaxed start, the registration and the catering for all the participating riders will be FREE this day.

Contest Atmosphere at the Zillertal Valley

The Vans Penken Park Mayrhofen was one of the first parks to open its doors this winter. Currently it features about 30 obstacles, so there are already loads of possibilities for amazing shred sessions. There’s no standstill in sight, though, since park designer Oriol Rosell and his highly motivated crew keep adding more and more obstacles to the setup. On January 14th 2017, the advanced line will serve as contest line for the Penken Battle 2017 to take place at the freestyle playground #1 of the Zillertal valley area and there’s already heaps of treats you can be looking forward to.

Besides being the perfect introduction to the contest business, the Penken Battle has a lot in offer for the participants in the categories Men, Women and Groms. On top of all, there’s the chance to bag a cash price and goodies by the Mayrhofen Mountain Railways, Amplifi, QParks and Pinetime Clothing worth a staggering total of 1,200€. The registration for the contest is totally free of charge and if that wasn’t enough, all riders will also enjoy free food and drinks!
