Marko Grilc wins Burn Style Session at the Billabong Air & Style Innsbruck
Innsbruck, February 1st 2013 – Marko Grilc lit up the Bergisel Stadium and won the Burn Style Session in which 23 Snowboard Legends participated. Taking home the €10.000,- cheque, Grilo was very happy, but mostly about the fact that it was so much fun. The “once in a lifetime” rider field that gathered for this event in honour of the 20th Anniversary of Air&Style, were judged by snowboard legends Reto Lamm, Dani ‘Kiwi’ Meier, Jim Rippey and Ingmar Backmann. Freestyle was the absolute key in this event, riders were allowed to drop in as much as they wanted and do whatever they felt like, paying tribute to this celebrated event, presented since 1994.
First winner of the Air &Style 1994 and current World Snowboard Tour president Reto Lamm commented: “A lot has changed since the first time I participated in this event. Everything got so much bigger and better. However, one thing is still the same: the great fun, creativity and energy that the crowd brings is something we all get to experience here time and time again. Air&Style is a pinnacle event on the World Snowboard Tour, and I am proud to still be a part of it.”
It was a good warm up for the action expected tomorrow, in Air&Style’s main event. An even bigger crowd will cheer on the 24 world’s best Big Air riders, who will battle for the Ring of Glory, and in addition for the World Snowboard Tour Big Air Championship title. This season’s Tour winner will be crowned right here in the Bergisel stadium, after a gripping Finale.
Antoine Truchon is currently leading the World Snowboard Tour Big Air ranking, but fellow Canadian Maxence Parrot has a good chance of grabbing that podium spot and the Big Air trophy. Other favorites for this year’s Big Air Tour title still include Stale Sandbech (NOR), Mark McMorris (CAN), Seppe Smits (BEL) and Roope Tonteri (FIN) amongst others, making this event the one to watch.
