This just in from our spies at, err, Spy.

Hello, I wanted to let you know that this week end will take place the third Spy Rail Battle. It is happening in VARESE, Italy, where Spy Optic has its factory. The event is a part of the TTR (Professional snowboarding Tour), and actually the Opening of the season for the South of Europe. We’ve already been blowing snow for 12 hours, it’s happening in about 36 hours We have an advertising campaign downtown, and the advertising screens in the city play the 15 sec clip 50 times an hour. More info on the Spy Optics Rail Battle site.
