The last “Contest for Riders” will go down on April, 30 when the Oakley Roof Battle takes place at Superpark Dachstein and ends the QParks Tour 16/17. All riders who have won loads of QParks Tour points are automatically qualified for the grand tour finale. At the Oakley Roof Battle they will shred a slopestyle setup meaning that the riders are not only going to show their jib-style but also how massively they send it on the kickers.
Just like at a regular tour stop, there will be a winner of the day for each category. But we’ll also find out who will get to call himself overall-winner of the QParks Tour 16/17. Now, if you think that it’s basically already decided after so many tour stops and that the riders are simply going to put down a couple of safety runs – well, you’re completely wrong. The simple explanation: at the Oakley Roof Battle the points are being tripled! Meaning that the race for the overall-win still remains super-exciting!
Another motivator for top-performances is the fact that the winners of each snowboard category will get a wildcard for the Pleasure Jam 2017, where they get to compete with international pros. The freeskiers won’t just be happy about experiencing an awesome contest day, bagging cash and sweet goodies, but also about getting valuable points for the ÖSV Freeski Cup. The after-season-festivities will go down at the bottom station of the Dachsteinbahn gondola right after the prize-giving. Prepare yourselves for a nice after-shred-get-together with fellow shredheads, BBQ and nice tunes by Blue Tomato.
