Once again, the northern hemisphere is freezing over as snow falls and our beloved bikes are tucked away in the warmth of our garages and basements.
But for those not scared off by the winter temperatures, there is something to look forward to at the start of next year: it's White Style time again in the holiday region of Saalfelden Leogang. The one-of-a-kind mountain bike spectacle on snow, held in January 2014 will once more kick off the European leg of the FMB World Tour. For the first time in 2014, the top riders will gather in Leogang to shred the White Style slopestyle course. The link below will get you warmed up for the inevitable action to come: http://youtu.be/An8k8ZVxnf0
Slopestyle mountain biking during the wintertime? Then Leogang's White Style is the place to be! For riders and fans, this event is the light at the end of a dark winter tunnel and a welcome diversion from winter sports during the bike-free off-season. On Friday January 31st 2014, riders will be rolling in at the top of the massive course located at Leogang's Schanteilift. For the second time since White Style 2013, this competition will be an official Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour (FMB World Tour) Silver event. Eager to get some early ranking points on the board and some post X-mas prize money with a purse of 5,000 Euro, world-class athletes will be packing their hats and scarfs and travelling to Leogang. The starting list is not yet finalized but more information about this will follow soon.
White Style is not only an opportunity to win FMB World Tour ranking points and a bit of cash. It is also a unique opportunity to throw down massive tricks on the huge kickers. The soft, yet unforgiving snow-made landings are ideal for sending the biggest, most technical tricks - this gets the riders pumped and puts on an incredible show for the spectators.
Don't miss the action! Pull up your snug winter socks, put on your warm wooly gloves and head down to Leogang's Schanteilift on January 31st 2014 from 4:30pm. Join us under the floodlights of the White Style course and be a part of this legendary event. Can't imagine how something like this can be real? Watch the teaser and you will be convinced that White Style is the place to be this winter: http://youtu.be/An8k8ZVxnf0
