Fresh Action From China


The riders in China for the 6th Red Bull Nanshan Open have got it made. Christian Reinhardt has been feeding us info from halfway across the world for the FOUR(4)STAR Swatch TTR event, and from what weve read and seen, things are going off not only in the park but also everywhere else. Riders arrived on Wednesday and were welcomed with all you can eat dinners, a trip to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen square, a bowling extravaganza and even full body massages! China sounds like the place to be right now while were freezing here in Davos! The park looks and sounds incredible. It was specially built for the riders with a massive kicker that launches riders in the air for 17 m! Each year we try to do something that has never been done here in China to get the crowd stoked” says Marco Huang, Mellow China Head Park Shaper. This year we did the giant hip and the tree-bonker!” Patrick Huber was the shredder of the day with a Rodeo 5 off the biggest kicker. Top picks for the main event include Kalle Ohlson who took second place last season, along with Jacob Wilhelmson and his quicksilver teammate Freddy Austbo.TTR will provide up-to-date coverage of the action in China, with results, videos, photos and another blog as 17 riders are locked and loaded, competing for 700 TTR Ranking Points and a piece of the $25 000 USD prize purse!
