Rock A Rail 2016: the number one snowboard event of the lowlands is back! Snow is falling early this year in the Netherlands. Building on the success of past years, one of the finest rail jams in Europe is back for its sixth anniversary. At December 10, thousands of spectators are expected to fill the “Grote Markt” in down town The Hague around 16 o’clock.
Right in the city centre, a custom, one-of-a-kind urban setting will be constructed over a two-storey scaffolding frame. Featuring the most provocative obstacles imaginable, the possibilities are endless. The street set up is covered by locally produced snow from The Uithof snow dome. Spectators will witness the jibbers battling it out for the 1000-euro grand prize, or a share of the 5000-euro prize purse. With international invitees Benny Milam (USA) and Shoma Takao (JPN) lining up alongside local heroes Bob van Unnik and Cees Wille, the riders are sure to make the most of the amazing set up.
