Teams are getting stacked for the ninth TransWorld Team Challenge at Heavenly. Twenty-one teams are confirmed, and TMs are clearing the calendars of their A-Team riders to make sure they don’t get shown up at Thursday night’s Shootout parkstyle event.

Defending Team Challenge Champions, Flow will be battling Forum’s Eddie Wall, Pat Moore, a Jake, and Megan O’Brien. The Shootout will be a showdown. Add to the mix Bryan Fox, Eero N., Pelosi, and Louie Fountain from the K2 roster, and two days of hot shred action is looking more like a (friendly) UFC fight for the title: Best Team In Snowboarding.

We’ll update the rider list as TMs confirm with TransWorld. Stay tuned to the site, and come up to shred with snowboarding’s twenty best team on April 4-6 at Heavenly.
