With the FIS World Champs going down in Kreischberg, Austria this week - there's a flock of talented snowboarders getting the hot sauce laps in for preparation for the qualifications going down as we speak.

The East of Austria has always been a hotspot for talent, especially riders hailing from the Eastern Bloc looking to train in some of the best snowparks in Europe. The Absolut Park Flachauwinkl has one of the best parks in Europe with kickers that'll put the fear of God in you if you're not careful.

What this does mean though, it it's packed to the brim with riders looking to hone their slopestyle skills. Czech out Martin Mikyska and Jan Nečas getting some laps in this weekend in preparation for the weeks activities.
