Online registration for The Arctic Challenge, by Oakley is open!As you might know, The Arctic Challenge, by Oakley (TAC) have changed dates and formats from the previous years. Global warming keeps pushing, and we have moved the event forward in time to secure better snow conditions. This year the event will be held between February 28 to March 5.
Due to the move we are no longer the season ending event of TTR, and we have changed our format accordingly. You cannot enter TAC by winning other TTR events anymore. There are two ways in:
1. You are one of the 10 invited riders
2. You register at the online registration form at www.the-arctic-challenge.com
This year we will only do a quarterpipe contest. The contest will be held in the classic Midtstuen ski jump arena near Holmenkollen, Oslo. We are expecting a nice crowd. There are 60 Open spots for the contest. The online registration for these spots is open between December 30 and January 20.
Registration fee is 50 EUROS.
By January 25 you will receive a confirmation or decline on your spot. Upon confirmation you will get links and contacts for hotel recommendations in Oslo. You pay the registration fee upon arrivalin Oslo. In addition to the Open contest for men, there will be a girls contest with 12 spots.

Three spots on The Arctic Freeride Trip
A few invited riders and the winners from the quarterpipe contest will travel to Lofoten and Northern Norway for a freeride and filming trip directly after the contest in Oslo. We leave on Monday the 6th of March, and stay for a week. There will be mountain expeditions, surf, fishing and other arctic activities that bring meaning to life.
Only riders, TAC media crew and media partners will join this trip. We will produce a sports TV show from Midtstuen and a lifestyle TV show from the Arctic Freeride Trip. Both shows will be distributed worldwide.
