Martino Fumagalli (Union Binding CEO): "Union is proud of this partnership with the World Rookie Tour, which is one of the important independent projects in the world for the development of youth snowboarding".
Marco Sampaoli (WRT Co-Founder): "It’s incredibile to see how much the World Rookie Tour has in common with Union Bindings. To make an example, Union's aim consists in creating the best snowboard bindings of the world, whereas the World Rookie Tour is working for 12 years in order to discover the best young snowboarders and integrate them in the pro system" .
Last but not least, the new World Rookie Tour website has been launched. Being an International event is fundamental to keep all the riders from all over the world updated with the latest news. This is why a new website was created! Some improvements have been made: it will be easier to sign in for the most of the events, you just need to go to “registration” and fill in an online formula. The calendar has been optimized and you can have a clearer idea of what it will be the next event and see all the news related to it. Finally you will be able to consult the website everywhere: during a travel, at home, on a tablet or on smartphone.
