Last Sunday, 1st February, was held the first stop of Italian Snowboard Tour! After postponements of the first stops planned in Bardonecchia and Campo Felice caused from bad snow and weather conditions, the sun finally shined on the Alps and allowed to carry out successfully the first contest of the tour: “Ride the Game” in San Simone (Brembo Ski resort) on the structures of a flawless Orobik Snowpark.
The atmosphere during the day was great, full of fun, as dictated by the true spirit of snowboarding freestyle; but is not missed, however, the competitive aspect of the event, the technical level of the participants was quite high and the victory was hard fought by the rider.
The set up of the race line of Orobik Snowpark was a great result of a significant work of the park’s staff.
The line was technical but balanced with two jump and two jibbing structures that allowed the riders to give their best.
The winner of male category was Marco Donzelli, clean and technical on the jump, second place for Alex Stewart, very technical on rails instead. Third place for Giacomo Erricchiello.
On the women’s podium instead, first place for Arianna Cau followed by Sara Silvestri and Katie Stewart
