This year Pamporovo resort hosted the World Rookie Tour for the 4th time! The organization of the event was excellent and the challenge attracted a great interest!

The first places in the most challenging category of the rookie men under 18 years were won by two British representatives – Harry White and Raymond Prentis who demonstrated excellent style and a lot of skills. Very good style and skills demonstrated the Bulgarian young talent Borislav Stoyanov who just starting to race in this age group but managed to impress the judges and ranked in 3rd place.

About TTR Pro Snowboarding & World Snowboard Tour
TTR Pro Snowboarding is a non-profit organization that oversees a professional network of events and athletes. Our objective is to develop and showcase the sport of snowboarding through the World Snowboard Tour, while facilitating a fair and open competition environment that includes innovative judging and ranking systems.

Under the new World Snowboard Tour 2.0, the 4-tiered structure will encompass Elite, International, National, and Regional event levels. Elite events will comprise the WST Pro Series (current working title). The Regional, National, and International levels of the WST 2.0 will make up the WST Qualifying Series (working title).
