Air & Style Beijing Rider Lineup Announced

Air & Style Beijing Rider Lineup Announced

The first TTR 6 Star event is about to go down soon on Saturday, December 8th and will do that overseas. Obviously we’re talking about the 2012 Air Style edition in Beijing (apparently presented by Shaun White, who even shows up from time to time when not fighting for his first ever shampoo commercial or smashing all drunk hotel rooms..). Now the official lineup got out and we’ll look forward to see if last year’s winner Ulrik Badertscher (NOR) will be able to defend his title in front of the below standing names that are pure fire and guarantee us one hell of a show to watch in two weeks time. Furthermore it is also the year of the Dragon in China and the guys of the Air & Style Company are up to build up a beast of a 50m inrun before the riders can take off from the Bird’s Nest and show their corks etc. 

Oakley Vice President of Global Sports Marketing Patrick Mcllvain said: „China is continually showing its strength as a global sports leader and the action sports arena is no exception. Now in its third year, Air & Style Beijing is building momentum behind the sport of snowboarding in one of the most important emerging markets in the world. Oakley is proud to partner with Shaun White in bringing one of the best snowboard events of the year to the Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium.“

It is also the first time ever that all 24 riders will start in a head-to-head competion from round #1 on. 12 winners and 4 lucky losers will advance to round #2 and try to make it into the Super Final of 4 riders. 1’000 World Snowboard Tour points, a dragon’s share of the € 75’000 prize purse plus the infamous Ring Of Glory are the plunder waiting to get won by one of the pros below.
