Watch the action from Camp of Champions, live.
With all the crazy progression that’s been going down lately (looking at you, Torstein Horgmo) we’re pumped about the first 5-Star TTR event of the season that’ll be shaking foundations in the Camp of Champions terrain park at Whistler Blackcomb from June 26-30 – The Billabong Ante Up. And now we’re even more stoked that we’ll be able to watch all the sickness, live, from the comfort of our laptops by heading to BillabongPro.com and clicking on Ante Up.
The rider list reads like a Who’s Who of shit hot steezers, with Scotty Lago, Triple Torstein, Seb Toutant and many more signed up and ready to shralp. Billabong’s live webcast team will be bringing action from the qualifying to the finals, unique rider interviews and the awards ceremony through the pipes and direct to your machine.
Riders will be hitting up a jump-to-rail feature that’s being constructed as we speak by Arena Snowparks Steve Petrie. He explaing: “The jump is going to be an 85-95 foot step-over style jump with a slightly elevated take-off. We’re going to gap out the area behind the take-off so it should be great for all the riders. The Push.ca rail set-up includes a 50-foot staircase with Down-Flat-Down Combi Box on one side and a DFD rail on the other.”
The Billabong Ante Up schedule is as follows…
June 25 – Rider Practice
June 26 – Live Event Coverage (weather dependent)
June 27-30 – Bad weather contingency days
