The draftees for the Gäng Jam are selected

March 14th, Mayrhofen, Tirol. The stunning weather and perfect snow conditions made it very favourable for the Aesthetiker Jam, Waengl Taengl Gaeng Jam qualifiers to show off their tricks in the optimised Vans Penken Park above Mayrhofen in Tirol.

Just like the NHL and NBA, the young bloods had the option today to qualify for the draft of the Aesthtiker Jam, Waengl Taengl Gaeng Jam finals on March 19th and 20th. The finals are all about teamwork and each 4 man team will be judged on their performance.

15 Teams are qualified for the finals and to each team one rider from the qualification is allocated. The riders showed tricks which were just as tough as those from the pros. Cab 5’s and backside 7’s were common and every once in a while a backside 1080 or frontside 9 was seen. The Austrian riders delivered an astonishing performance.
The results: Reini Rieser in first place followed by Hubert Fill, Stefan Wimmer and Alex Walch.

Tonight, Shakewell Sound will guarantee an awesome festivity at the FM4 Club in the Arena in Mayrhofen. After such a fantastic day, the party tonight will definitely be just as fabulous!
