Where: Kitzbühel, Austria
DC and QParks will soon hit the road leading to the DC Area Kitzbühel 43 in search of the coming shred talents. At the DC Rookie Contest on March 20th 2010 all snowboarders up to 16 years of age are invited to participate in the slopestyle competition. Come along and have a nice day with DC and Planet Sports pro riders. A barbecue and live DJ sounds and some big ass prizes from the partners will be waiting for the winners.
Themed “Rookies are the reason” the event is all about junior snowboarders! However, apart from the competition the day offers so much more: You can start the day quite comfortably at the “Ride Together” with DC and Planet Sports pros. In this two hour training session the pros will give hints and tips to further push the skills of your riding and maybe they will even convince the odd rider to take part in the contest.
Registration for the contest can be done via the park website www.dc-area-43-kitzbuehel.com or on the contest day at the snow park from 9am. Please do not forget the disclaimer and have it signed by your parents – unless they trod along anyways. The DC Rookie Contest will have a separate girls and boys rating. Did we mention the barbeque was free for everyone? For all of you who feel like contest riding is beyond your abilities: Take part in the DC pro coaching in the afternoon! The training will include a photo and film shoot. The images can be downloaded after the event on the park’s website.
While the contest itself will go down over the medium line over the park the subsequent “Best Trick Session” will be held at the DC Wallride. Some additional cool goodies will be distributed to all riders! Participation in the DC Rookie Contest is for free. All necessary information and registration can be found on the park’s website.
