Freestyla ALTA BADIA

Staying down to earth was the motto of the QParks Snowboard Tourstop “La Freestyla” at Snowpark Alta Badia. That is because despite bright sunshine, the slopestyle contest couldn’t be executed as planned due to stormy conditions. That’s why the contest was relocated to the not less spectacular jib line. Fabian Wolfsgruber, Eveline Gerlo and Tino Stojak secured themselves the win!

An outdoor contest is always at the mercy of the weather gods. It would’ve been too nice if they would’ve been gracious with the QParks Tour, but not this time. The wind nearly swiped the rookies of the mountain. To secure the safety of all riders and a fair competition, a prompt decision was made to relocate the contest to the not less attractive jib line of the Snowpark Alta Badia.

The contestants didn’t get distracted by Mother Nature’s fickleness and used the available setup as well as they could. The riders had to conquer a 7m industry down tube, an 8m flat down rail before they had the choice between a 6m straight rail and a step down box in the end section. In all categories it was a hot battle for the spot on top of the podium. At the end of the day, the favorites came out on top.

International rider field in the snowboard category

At the last Tourstop, Fabian Wolfsgruber from Upper Austria only reached rank 3, so he showed his skills once more and ended up in first place this time, followed by Lorenzo Peeters and Marc Grossgasteiger from Italy.

In the ladies’ category, Eveline Gerlo from Belgium came out on top. Surprisingly, after one year injury lay-off, Lana Behla from Germany managed to finish in second place. The third place went to the winner of the Battle ROJal, Lea Jugovac (CRO)

The only 14 year old Tino Stojak from Croatia dominated the rookie section and left the two Italians Jacob Huber and Lukas Holzer in second and third place.

Sebastian Springert (ITA) delivered the best trick of the day: A FS 270 Hardway on the down tube.
