A mixture of blue skies, a sick course and cold temperatures greeted everyone for the opening day of the Wängl Tängl 2010 in Mayrhofen.

And even with the dates clashing with this year’s European X Games in Tignes there is still a good turnout of riders and industry folk and the opening day practise session went down with a bang.

One of the sickest slopestyle features ever built for a contest in the form of the ‘Cradle’ sits at the bottom of the course and has multiple hits, jibs and possible lines for riders to take. Match this up with the famous Mayrhofen ‘Channel Gap’ and 2 phat kickers (that usually make up part of the pro kicker line) and you can see why the Wängl Tängl has a reputation for being one of the more innovative competitions out there in terms of the course and hits offered. Multiple hits were had on the Cradle and an array of tech spins went down over the kickers and channel gap keeping the crowds and us industry people entertained and giving us a taste of what to expect on Friday when the main competition aspect to this event, the Gäng Jäm, goes down.

Check some of the pics below of a taste of what the course looks like and some of the tricks going down on the features.

More photos and reports to come, as well as a review of the Artspace Opening which features top artists like A-Designs, Atzgerel and Permanent Unit.
