When: Sat 19th of January 2008

Where: Defraggn, Austria

Last weekend´s „Rome defRaggn shreddn 2008“ was a great success. January 19th welcomed 23 riders with fresh snow and sunshine. The crew around Daniel “Gama" Qamar built a snowpark deluxe in the Austrian St. Jakob resort on 2300 metres. A massive stair set with double kink and down rail as well as a kink box. Even an old VW-Bus with jib table was built in the park.

Still want more? Fine! A massive 18m table with a smooth landing invited for all kind of trixxxxx. Headjudge Wolle Beer and Steve Grumser did their best to judge the talents. After a price giving in the park the crew moved back to TopSpot Homebase and “Rome Backyard park" to enjoy whirlpool, drinks and sound from Momo and Pauli. After a short night (or long??) the crews joined Alex Papis for a photoshoot in the Backyard park.

The event will be shown on ORF Sportplus TV Jan. 27th
