For those of you that were big fans of the New Zealand Open, we have some sad news....the NZO has been retired. Although, the NZO was a great event, the time had come to call it a day and progress the event into something new and different. 

Starting this summer of 2012, the NZO will become Burton High Fives taking place August 15-18, 2012. A fun, competitive event in which 60 of the world's top male and female riders will be invited to take part in HP and SS competition as well as unique team challenges. Riders will not only be awarded for their individual performances in HP and SS, but will also be divided up into teams of 5 and will compete in team challenges like winter driving, skeet shooting and others. 

Invite Protocol:
–top 10 men from the Global World Ranking List for HP and SS
–Top 8 women from the Global World Ranking List for HP and SS
– 2 men wildcards per discipline and 4 women wildcards/discipline, plus 6 additional invites that can be used for men or women, HP or SS
