The World’s finest shredders will be turning up the heat on the gigantic, perfectly sculpted quarterpipe, including Kevin Pearce who has reigned supreme for two years running. Travis Rice, fresh from his somewhat controversial X-Games Big Air gold will be hungry for another big win; Finnish phenomenon Antti Autti will be there upping the ante as usual as will current (at the time of writing) Swatch TTR Tour leader Peetu Piiroinen. And of course we’ll be treated to the incredible talents of local favourite Terje Haakonsen.
