As one of the first 5Star events of the TTR World Snowboard Tour 2012/2013, the Quiksilver
Spring Battle 2012 attracts a great number of international riders. Beside the heavy prize
purse, up to 850 points can be earned for the TTR Big Air Tour Ranking, already counting
towards the 2012/2013 season ranking. The Quiksilver Spring Battle is unique for its
combination of top riders attending with a high-class setup in the perfectly shaped Absolut
Park Flachauwinkl and an innovative Video-Judging System.
 
“Cash for Tricks” Skate Session

skateboard elite is going to get together at the Absolut Park´s chill house on Wednesday to
rake in some prize money for the best tricks in the transition of the local mini-ramp.

On Thursday, the party programme kicks off at EMAs Pub in Flachau with the official riders
night, the Pickle-Night supported by GNU. DJ Dragstar brings up the perfect sound and all
competitors will surely be attending this party, since the qualified riders of Friday´s
Superfinals will be announced at the Pickle-Night. On Friday, the final Quiksilver Spring

as well.
