The BRITS, 21st – 28th March 2010 Laax, Switzerland
With less than 90 days to go before The BRITS 2010 Snow and Music Festival hits Laax, Switzerland it’s time to make the most of the UK’s recent snowfall and get the shred stick out, head for the nearest hill or snow covered common and practice manoeuvring between those extreme sledgers in preparation for one of the BRITS first events, the Trespass Snowboardcross Championships.
The Trespass Snowboardcross Championships witnessed the largest number of entrants to date at The BRITS 09 with over 200 competitors, ranging from novice to pro stepping up to the start gates to race against the clock and each other down the challenging 700m course. Team GB, and in particular Zoe Gillings and James Foster will be looking to get amongst the medals, where victories will secure them a third consecutive Trespass British Snowboardcross Championship each.
Gillings, who is considered one of Britain’s best hopes for a medal at the upcoming 2010 Winter Olympics, will be back at the BRITS in March to defend her current British title. Hopefully we’ll discover a few more future stars, inspired by her performance and looking to follow in her footsteps.
The Trespass Snowboardcross Championships will kick start the snowboard competition schedule on Tuesday 23rd March. The BRITS welcomes all ability levels and is served up across five age categories, Kids, Youth, Junior, Senior and Masters. Competition registration will be live from the 1st January 2010, for more event information and to register to compete, check out: www.brits10.com
