On January 24th 2009 the all new O’Neill Alpspitzpark in Nesselwang will become the stage for “The 5ive Barbecue". After its move from the Fellhorn to Nesselwang, the famous slopestyle contest for snowboarders and freeskiers and second tour stop of the Suzuki Wir schanzen 2009 presented by Quiksilver themes the three words “barbecue, tricks and party" and thus cleaves to its longtime tradition.

Participants out of the whole alpine region as well as from other corners of Europe will be attending the Swatch TTR two (2) Star Event and ride for the Wir Schanzen ranking points and of course for the much sough-after world ranking points of the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour. One may be looking forward to a high sportive level at a simultaneously relaxed and amicable atmosphere.

The O’Neill Alpspitzpark will be redesigned especially for “The 5ive Barbecue" and the riders, friends and spectators can expect a sophisticated, multifunctional and innovative setup. Obstacles made by Schneestern parks & more in all imaginable sizes and shapes will animate the riders to give their best.

In cooperation with the new title sponsor of the tour stop 5ive Skateshop, the DJ team Drunkenmasters aka Slim-C and Big Joe will provide a hilarious atmosphere during the contest. The snowpark will be specially decorated according to the motto of the event and besides some show specials the Red Bull Best Trick under floodlights will cause adrenaline kicks for the riders as well as for the public. A professional barbecue team provides fresh steaks and sausages throughout the whole day.

At the actual contest, the participants will start in the six categories Snowboard & Ski Kids, Snowboard & Ski Girls and Snowboard & Ski Men. The chase for the Swatch TTR world ranking points affects only the categories Snowboard Girls and Snowboard Men, though. But the participants in the other categories will show their best likewise, because also the overall victory of the Suzuki Wir Schanzen 2009 presented by Quiksilver is much sough-after. The winners in the several categories of “The 5ive Barbecue" may be looking forward to a big price money and other premium rewards.

The evening will be celebrated in the Postbrauereihalle from 9 pm on, where the award ceremonies will take place and a hilarious party until dawn awaits the crowd. The French DJ team “The Beatorrent", part of the legendary crew C2C will be spinning. With four DMC Team Champion titles, they constantly reinvent themselves and prove their unbelievable skills. From January 2009 on, DJ Pfel and DJ Atom start their worldwide tour and present an innovative, audiovisual top-class performance. Also the Suzuki Wir Schanzen tour DJ’s Drunkenmasters will spin here, present a snippet from their new mixtape and traditionally care for a packed dancefloor.

Besides a top-class contest, „The 5ive Barbecue“ also offers a party at its finest. A date, friends of hard action and even harder party should not miss.
