The Oxborn Session in Sweden resurfaces

Remember the good ol’ days when the ‘Megastar’ contest was going off in Gothenburg. Or maybe more recently, ‘the battle’ contests, which to this day remain one of the coolest contest series in the history of Eurocomps. What a shame!

Don’t worry, there is no need to panic! From the 4th till the 5th of April, Jon Oxborn is inviting you to the Oxborn Session in Tandalen, Sweden! It’s not going to be as huge as the ‘battle’ or the ‘megastar’ contests, but it sure as hell will be fun!

Qualifications will be held on the 4th, where 6 of the best riders will qualify themselves for the main event. In the main event the six lucky riders will have to battle it out next with 12 invited riders of international stature. To throw in some names of riders attending: Eiki Helgasson, Andreas Gidlund and Kin Andre Eliassen have confirmed their attendance. The setup will consist of a big booter followed by an 8 meter high quarter. Two perfect features to really send it into the darkness of night on Saturday the 5th of April.

The organisers have decided to change up the boring 1st, 2nd and 3rd place results format and exchanged it with an overall winner followed by four other special awards; best style, best tech trick, crowd pleaser of the night and the highest air.

This is going to be soooo fun!

The man with the plan; Jon Oxborn
