The winner Gäng of the losers round is untouchable

March 19th 2009, Mayrhofen, Tirol. Their name says it all: the ‘Untouchables’ Reini Rieser, Benny Wetscher and Thomas Tramnitz showed tricks in the Vans Penken Park that Mayrhofen in Tirol has not seen for a long time! This crew snagged the last spot in tomorrow’s final showdown by ousting the other two crews with spins and style.

Even though the tough weather conditions were very variable, the sun still shined for some of the competition. Benny Wetscher showed a super stylish frontside 1080 and further more the Gäng delivered a crazy session over the hip in the Red Bull end section getting huge air time.

At yesterday’s Carharrt presents ‘Rugged’ party in the Tristenbach Alm in Ginzling, hell was on fire! The festivity was insane, especially the burning Carhartt logos in the back yard that were illuminating everyone’s spirit.

Some of that hell will lead over to today’s Vans Music Stage in the Wängl Eventhall in Mayrhofen. Skate Punk is on! Millencolin with Gentleman’s Pistols and Jettblack supporting will be heard all over the Ziller valley.

Tomorrow’s snowboard finals taking place from 12:00 to 14:00 hours, the riders will have their last chance to give their best performance.
