This is for all the young guns striving for recognition, sponsors and domination in the world of snowboarding! The biggest rookie tour for snowboarders will again be touring around visiting the best 10 parks that Germany, Switzerland and Austria have to offer. The best thing about the whole shabang is that it’s free! You don’t need to be part of an organization or have a sponsor to get your shred on. No admission price! The jam session format keeps things relaxed and not too stiff. You’re world will not shatter into a million pieces if you sketch out on a landing or take a slam. You will have a given amount of time where you will be able to take as many runs as you want, with your best then getting scored. Yeah! A unique Team format will take the best 4 riders from each of the tour stops and unleash them to battle it out at the finals on the Kitzsteinhorn on March 15th to the 16th. The goodies waiting for the winners are awesome! The overall male winner will get a wildcard for the TTR Nanshan Open 09 in China, and the female winner will get one for the 6-star TTR event Roxy Chicken Jam. Additional wildcards for the Aesthetiker Wängl Tängl will be given to winners from the Lech, Zugspitze and St. Moritz tour stops, as well as a wildcard for the Absolute Park Battle in Flauchauwinkel for the winner of the Flauchauwinkel tour stop. There will be more info to come, but I think for now this will suffice to make your mouths water.
