TTR Relentless BIGAIR Stuttgart 2011

Relentless BIGAIR Stuttgart 2011Stuttgart is famous for making great leaps forward in sports. But if you wanted to see Backflips, Double Corks and Frontside Spins, you had to travel to the USA, to Scandinavia or at least to Innsbruck, Austria -- to the Top-Snowboard-Events in the world. On January 4/5, 2011 the state capital is initially going to be in the focus of the international snowboard-scene: 'Relentless BIGAIR Stuttgart' is not only going to invite the world's best riders to the Neckar -- the Swabian metropolis will host Germany's second biggest Snowboard-Contest. The new freestyle event is going to be part of the prestigious Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour. Relentless BIGAIR Stuttgart is going to take place directly in the city -- in the Neckarpark between Cannstatter Wasen and the Mercedes-Benz-Arena on parking area P9.Centrepiece and sensational eyecatcher of the two-day event is going to be the 36 metre high ramp, from which the boarders will show hazardous tricks before landing in the sweet spot. To satisfy the international contest criteria 250 tons of steel are necessary. After the landing a staircaseis waiting for the riders and they can show their skills sliding down the combination of stairs and rails as artistic as possible. A jury is judging the jumps and tricks altogether. The rider leading after both judgements awaits not only an enormous prize money of US$ 50,000, but also a bunch of world ranking points.The best known companies and retailers in the snowboard business will get the opportunity to make an appearance on January 4/5 in Stuttgart as well. On both days the fair 'Brandstation' will take place and firms will present trends and innovations in the scene. The 'Brandstation' is open to all visitors.Everyone who wants to get in the right mood for the main event on Wednesday can come by on Tuesday and watch the practice session -- for free! -
