The Sponsoree Ticket2Style contest will give five up and coming freeriders a chance to qualify for the Adidas Slopestyle competition. Held just one day before the main competition, aspiring pro freeriders who have not yet competed internationally will get to demonstrate their skills before a vast audience and qualify for the next day's main event with the pros.
"Assisting young mountain bike talents is close to our hearts. Therefore, we are delighted to host an international rookie event in the scope of the Adidas Slopestyle," said Markus Flossmann, managing director of Sponsoree Germany GmbH. "It is our goal to provide athletes who have a lot of talent but virtually no contacts in the industry with a platform to present themselves.".
The five best newcomers of the Sponsoree Ticket2Style contest, that takes place in Saalbach Hinterglemm one day prior to the Adidas Slopestyle 2008, on Thursday 31 July, will win an entry for the invitational contest to which only the forty best freeriders in the world are invited.
To apply for the contest, visit www.adidas-slopestyle.com. Of all applicants 16 years of age or older, the best 100 rookies will be selected and invited to Saalbach Hinterglemm.
