The Oakley Arctic Challenge

What a showdown at the first TAC slopestyle since 2003. Top 20 riders from the TTR ranking (except the injured Seb Toots and Ipod) are confirmed. Furthermore, top 6 from the X Games slopestyle finals and top 8 from the overall Dew Tour ranking is heading for Norway.

There are excitement on all levels in TAC 2010, starting next week. Peetu Piiroinen
will highly likely secure his second consecutive TTR Tour Championship. And for
the first time, Norwegian snowboard heroes Mikkel Bang and Torstein Horgmo
(Andreas Ygre Wiig is injured) are challenging their International peers in a 6 star
slopestyle event on home soil. Torstein had a killer season last year, and started to
turn up his competition volume this season as well by winning the final Dew Tour
stop. Stylish Mikkel can also win whenever he puts on a start bib.

One of the best riders lists in the history of both TTR and TAC is giving promise of
thrilling snowboard action.
