Protest World Rookie Fest 2009 Kick Off


90 rookies enjoy yesterday the Swatch Snowpark Mottolino in Livigno for the Protest World Rookie Fest 2009. The set up for this 3star slope style for under 18 years riders included 3 different lines including 3 huge jump with table tops about 20m long: simply amazing. During the cloudy sunday’s training the participants showed already an high level of riding: the norwegian Staale Sandbech, Dimi de Jong from the Netherlands, Teddy Koo from Japan and Nuutti Niemela already impressed killing the pro line with sick runs including rotations 7 and 9. Among the girls Alicia Bonnaud from France seemed the most solid on the large line. At 12.00 a.m. winds come up stopping the trainings on the jumps so the rookis arrange a rail session on the first obstacle of the slope: a huge 25 stairs with straigh and kinked rails.On Monday 20th January is planned the qualification day with 2 run per rider, while Thursday 21st will see the best 16 male rookies, 8 male groms and 8 girls challenging for tickets to Aesthetiker Wangel Tangel Gang Jam in Mayerhofen, Protest World Rookie Finals in Ischgl and Protest Surf Camp in Hossegor and valuable TTR points.Follow the event with daily videos on www.freecaster.TV starting from Monday 20th evening.The Protest World Rookie Fest is organized by the World Snowboard Federation in collaboration with Board Riders, and is made possible by Protest Boardwear, Ride Snowboards, Adidas Eyewear and, with the support of Pirate Movie Productions, the Aesthetiker Waengle Taengle, the Swatch Snowpark Mottolino, Livigno Tourist Board and Skipassion, spiced up by RedBull.
