A rapid revision to the TTR World Snowboard Tour this week confirms the addition of men’s slopestyle event TTR THREE(3)STAR Rip Curl Seafun Invitational in Sweden, just as Finland’s all-women TTR FOUR(4)STAR Cat Fight announces its cancellation.
Sweden is finally back on the Men’s TTR Calendar with first-time TTR event, TTR THREE(3)STAR Rip Curl Seafun Invitational, located in Kungsberget, 16th-18th February, 2007. In its 7th year, the Rip Curl Seafun Invitational presents a 45-rider Final, based on invited and quali spots from Europe’s top snowboarders, to session the rail-ravaged slopestyle park, and gain up to 550 TTR Ranking Points.
‘We are super stoked to be able to work with TTR and the goal is to create a fun and relaxed event that the riders will love. Perhaps there will be more TTR events up in Sweden in the future as TTR pushes the sport of snowboarding in the right direction,’ states Jonas Nilsson, Marketing Manager, Rip Curl Sweden.
On a different note, the Women’s TTR Calendar suffers another loss in Scandanavia as organizers declare
TTR FOUR(4)STAR event Cat Fight cancelled due to lack of sponsorship. The all-girl slopestyle contest, due to take place 11th-14th April 07 in Ruka, Finland, aims to return at a yet-to-be-announced date in 2008.
