ONeill Evolution 2011
2-8 January 11, Davos, Switzerland
At the bottom of the Jakobshorn in its usual place, is where the 6*TTR Slopestyle and halfpipe competitions will be held
From January 2nd until the 8th expect to be mesmerised as some of the best snowboarding talent in the world pushes the limits and take to the skies from the halfpipe and slopestyle sitting at the base of the Jakobshorn, in Davos, Switzerland.
The Halfpipe finals will take place on Friday January 7th as 10 riders hit the 6 metre high, 130 metre long and 20 metre wide pipe which sits impressively at the base of the Jakobshorn.
Saturday sees a day of Slopestyle finals that will run into a floodlit night finale as the riders take to the skies under the gasps of the crowds gathered at the foot of the course.
“We always want to bring something new and exciting to this event,” said O’Neill Global Sportsmarketing Director, Bernhard Ritzer. “It’s called Evolution after all,” he said. “This year we’re changing the Slopestyle radically into a 2-hit course following feedback from the riders for less but more challenging features, and a mix of day and night riding will bring variation and challenges for the riders.”
