The project started in February when riders from all around Europe were invited to submit 1-minute-long clips showing their snowboarding skills. All they needed to do is follow 1 simple rule: clips had to include a bs 5, my favourite trick.
Clips started rolling in, some had the riding on a pro level, and some were showing the most creative production so far. Some of the riders spiced it up with the 3D technique, whereas the others just destroyed the rails.
After several months of voting via Facebook, it was Mitja Kodric who received incredible 688 likes, followed by Luka Krajnik with 584 likes. These two lads won a direct spot at the 4 men finals. The remaining 2 spots were decided by the two of the most recognized snowboarders in the world. Eero Ettala chose Daniel Dietrich and Marc McMorris chose Flo Corzelius.
These are the 4 winners that made it through the online part of the project. Now it is up to them to throw it down in real life.
Up until now the location of the finals has been kept secret. The time has come to reveal it. The finals will take place on 19 May 2012 on Dachstein in Austria. The action starts in the afternoon when the ski resort is closed, enabling the riders to use the entire snowpark as their playground. They will be judged by their tricks, style and creativity. I will be the only judge.
The rider I pick, the winner, and this lucky rider will get a chance to go toÂ Whistler and attend the camp of the champions. The rider will bring his homie and they will undoubtedly have a trip of a lifetime.
THIS IS THE DACHSTEIN PARK THEY WILL RIDE!!!
