Snowpark Stuhleck : Nike 6.0 Stairset Battle Tour
The 9th and final stop of the Nike 6.0 Stairset Battle Tour on 4 February 2011 at Blue Tomato Snowpark in Stuhleck Austria revealed the last qualifier for the big finals. A total of 33 riders battled it out in a heated night session on the stairset in front of 400 spectators for their last chance to win a ticket for the finals.
At Stuhleck, the stair set was embedded right into the middle of the park, which offers up to eight rail-obstacles in one single line – replete with its own cable lift and floodlights for night sessions until 10PM. Once again, the level of riding at this official TTR 2-Star event was incredible. And for added incentive, the final session went down in a “cash for tricks”-format.
At the end of the day, the best 10 riders divided up the total purse of €2,000 amongst themselves – a sure recipe for a constant barrage of bangers! Now that the tour is over, all we can do is wait for how the 9 qualified riders from all over Europe will battle it out against the pros on the XXL-Stairset at Munich Olympic Stadium. We’re counting down the days – make sure you don’t miss the Stairset Battle Tour!
