An easy atmosphere, sick shredding and riders ready to have a good time are the only ingredients needed for the Swatch TTR 3-Star O’Neill Barbecue, prepared to take over the O’Neill Fellhornpark in Oberstdorf, Germany on March 22nd 2008. Ready to be dished out are 550 TTR Ranking points, a $10,000 prize purse and loads of sponsor goods to the best riders of the day.
The event has developed from a small, local contest to an extremely popular comp within the last five years, attracting skilled riders from all over Europe. The park is one of the best around featuring two kickers, a massive hip, and a heavy saturation of every rail and box imaginable. Riders will have no problem getting creative with such an abundance of freestyle terrain and obstacles to slay.
Starting Thursday, March 20th and continuing through to the 22nd, competitors will have the opportunity to test, practice and become familiar with the challenging setup. Friday will host a day of practice alongside a tasty BBQ. The competition will go down on Saturday and following the prize giving riders and spectators can let loose at the after party.
