Matthias Vogt & Christina Gruber The Quiksilver Wir Schanzen Champions 2010


They came, saw and stepped on it! At the Big Final of the Quiksilver Wir Schanzen 2010 with bright sunshine in the perfectly shaped Betterpark Hintertux the qualified snowboarders showed why it was them who had made it to the final 3Star Swatch TTR event of the Quiksilver Wir Schanzen Tour. For many riders the Big Final of the Quiksilver Wir Schanzen 2010 was the last contest of the season, but the smiling faces at the accreditation already showed that there was a lot of motivation left to step on it one more time.The contest ran as a jam-session, so the riders could make as many runs as a preset time period allowed. And it was the right decision: the riders pushed each other from run to run to a top class riding level.The kids and girls went first on the medium kickers and jib line. Mini but mighty! The kids made everybody sit up. In the end it was Christian Geiger (AUT) who took the victory and he was awarded a summer season ticket for the Hintertux Glacier worth more than 500 euro. For 222 days the Betterpark Hintertux, as the only summer snowpark of Central Europe will now be his second home. Local heroine Christina Gruber (AUT) nailed down the victory in the snowboard category with the best action in this class and could take home two tickets for the Taubertal Festival. The big showdown came in the superfinals of the men. The riders could not get enough and the tricks became faster, higher and further from run to run. It was Matthias Vogt (AUT) who won with creativity, challenging tricks and a lot of style. The champion took home a cheque worth 1000 Euros from the title sponsor Quiksilver. At the last Red Bull Best Trick Session of this years tour the challenge was to overcome an Up-Box with a Gap. Again Matthias Vogt (AUT) wrapped this session up with a switch 50-50 Backflip out. For those who cannot get enough of kickers, boxes and co. in the summer, the Betterpark Hintertux is THE place to be. The snowpark is open from April to December – Superpipe included!The Afterparty at the Kleine Tenne in Lanersbach topped off the Big Final of the Quiksilver Wir Schanzen 2010. The winners and the successful ending of the tour were celebrated adequately to the dance music of the Drunken Masters. All in all it was an absolutely felicitous and worthy final of the Quiksilver Wir Schanzen 2010. A big Thank You! goes to the sponsors, to the Hintertux Glacier and the Tux-Finkenberg Tourism, to the crew and of course to all the motivated riders of all tour stops, without you the Wir Schanzen would not exist.See you next season!Oh and by the way – as always there is a cool video made by RebelTV for those who could not come to the Hintertux Glacier.
