Olympic competitor and A.R.C. member Jan Michaelis from Germany seemed to have a strong weekend: He won the BEST TRICK category on Saturday during the jam session with a extremely high and stylish Cab 10. During the Sunday finals he won both the Legend’s Category as well as the overall ranking.
His A.R.C. team mate Stefan Falkeis ended up 4th in the finals, but could take home the Austrian Halfpipe Champion as being the best Austrian.

The slopestyle competition will take place from 5 March to 7 March in Westendorf.

Beautiful weather, good vibes and sick performance of the riders turned the Shred Down Austrian Masters Superpipe Competition into an unforgettable event both for riders and spectators.
