The biggest slopestyle course ever built ‘down-under’ is nearly ready forthe start of the weeklong STYLEWARS event.
Plans for a massive 30-foot high hip and a 120-foot straight jump, amoungother features, is still on schedule. Great weather has allowed the parkcrew at Falls Creek resort to commit five cats to the building over the last5 days.
Riders will have three (3) scheduled “competition days over the next weekbut there are no bibs, no hectic schedules or “comp runs.
Each riding day will involve a three-hour session in the oversize park whereriders get to nominate at any time a judged run. Head Judge Drew Stevenson(TTR World Tour CEO) will be making sure things are kept to the ‘no-format’format!
“It’s a very open format that promotes progression instead of the normalcontest runs. Said Richard Hegarty the event organiser.
