Air & Style is back in Munich!
| LIVE ON FREECASTER |
One of the most prestigious Big Air snowboard contests is back in town! After three years absence from Munich, the long awaited moment has arrived! The Air & Style contest (TTR 6 Star) has found his path back to the Bavarian gates. After Nokia bailed quite spontaneously and for no reason, just a few weeks before kicking off in 2008, there hasn‘t been an Air & Style contest in that year. For further events was taken care of. Thanks to Billabong there have been even new formats. After the little incident in Munich, the Air & Style went back to his roots to Bergisel Stadium in Innsbruck, Austria, with a quarterpipe contest besides the regular Big Air event. Recently, new frontiers have been explored, as Oakley managed to bring the event to Beijing, China (presented by Shaun White) in December 2010.
This season no one wil get disappointed for sure, as we are going to be able to enjoy in total three Air & Style events! Besides the event in China, we can be excited to see the Billabong Air & Style (TTR 6 Star) in Innsbruck tommorow and the Nike 6.0 Air & Style in Munich on February 12th. Everybody is stoked, not only about the fact that the contest is back to Munich (otherwise there would be just one Big Air contest in Germany for the entire season), also that we have again another true sports sponsor for it. Nike 6.0 as a relatively new player in the game, has already proven his ability to handle action sports quite well. Beside the fact to set up great teams (snowboarding: Mason Aguirre, Halldor Helgason, Peetu Piiroinen, Kevin Pearce e.g.), they presented sick product lines too, as well as good contests (Nike 6.0 Stair-Set Battle Tour -TTR 2 Star) and TV commercials feat. Wu-Tang rapper The RZA for example.

If you won‘t be able to make it to none of the two events, don‘t panic. You can still watch both live: Freecaster is going to stream the Air & Style contest on the web in full lenght!
