Braving the cold temperatures, about 200 workers have begun construction for the Billabong Air & Style Innsbruck 2011 at the Bergisel Stadium. The steel construction is starting to grow and already gives a glimpse of how massive this jump will be. 280 tons of steel and wood are needed to complete the jump which will be the centerpiece of the Air & Style. Once the construction is completed, 700 cubic meters of snow will be brought in from Stubai Glacier to guarantee a perfect jump with a smooth landing. The landing has been extended by 2 meters compared to the last Air & Style to give the 16 riders more room to throw down… And who knows, maybe it’ll be enough for the 1440 or triple cork?! Some of the riders competing inlcude Marko Grilc, Sebastien Toutant, Elias Elhardt, Peetu Piiroinen, Eric Willett… Besides the construction of the jump, staff are working on the stage for the live music acts as well as the infrastructure for TV coverage, areas for VIP’s, media and judges. German artist Jan Delay and American punk rockers Pennywise will be entertaining the crowd at this TTR 6 Star event and will make sure the atmosphere will be worthy of an Air & Style. So get your tickets and be there on February 5th!
