Not long to go until the Nikita Chickita, Europe 2008! We’re all excited about the impending contest, so here’s a few more updates.
As sponsors of this year’s event, Cooler and Onboard will be supplying copies of their latest magazines for goodie bags and winners can also expect a Cooler t-shirt and magazine subscription in their prize package, among Nikita and Skull Candy booty.
Les Ettes non-alocoholic perfumes will be supporting the Nikita Chickita this year, providing samples of their feminine fragrances in event goodie bags whilst also keeping the ladies fresh at the after party, so look out for spritzer opportunities!
The course at Serfaus is coming along nicely. Shaper Marcus Falch dropped an update over the weekend saying they had the Flight Control Slopestyle Contest there on 22nd March – click on the PARK tab to check out some pics at www.2high.at
Marcus has informed us that the course will include first a roller kicker with 12m table and near a 7m table and the second roller kicker a 14m table and near a 8-9m table. After the kicker you can switch from a tree, a stair setup and from the buttertable go off a 6m picnic table with the last obstacle being a wall.
The event is open to anyone and will no doubt showcase some new faces pushing the level of girls’ riding. Last year’s winner Steffi Hamman won a one-year contract on the Nikita Team and this year the same opportunity is up for grabs, plus a prize cash purse. There’s two categories including womens and juniors who will take part in one to three heats of 15-20 competitors. Registration will take place the day of the event at the Serfaus ticket office.
…and let’s just say that the after party and award ceremony will take place at the famous Bam Bam bar. Austrian mix master Chris Fader, hip hop DJ and six times IFT Austrian scratch Champion will be coming straight from Vienna to bust out the mood for the evening – myspace.com/ghostbusterscrew
