After a terrific comeback in 2008 and an excellent continuation of the Billabong Air & Style Innsbruck-Tirol in the beginning of 2009, the spectacle that is the A&S returns once again to the world famous Bergisel Stadium. On 05.12.09 the 16 best snowboarders in the world fight at the Billabong Air & Style Innsbruck-Tirol 09/II – a six star event of the Swatch TTR World Tour – for the Ring of Glory. In the last two years the riders were confronted with a monstrous quarter pipe. Now in the third new edition they have to handle a Big Air Straight Jump over an enormous kicker. So the Air & Style returns to its roots. This discipline was the traditional one in the Bergisel Stadium in the 90's and in 2009 it will definitely cause quite a commotion. All fans can look forward to exciting tricks high in the air, set before a breathtaking backdrop.
Besides the pros, the youngsters get the chance to show their talent. 12 young riders compete against each other in the great popular rookie challenge. In the main contest 16 pros are expected and once again the Billabong Air & Style Innsbruck-Tirol 09/II will definitely present a great riders list. Between the contests you get an earful…of music! The Hives will rock the stage in December in the Bergisel Stadium. The Swedish band already gathered Air & Style experience in 2007 in Munich and they know exactly how to make the crowd go crazy.
Presale for tickets has started on 04.07.09. Only on the official Air & Style homepage you can buy the tickets for grandstand and you better be quick because they will be in great demand. Compared to the tickets last year the prices are a bit higher, which is caused by switching to a straight jump. That includes a new setup causing higher costs. But a ticket with a price of 37,00 € (plus presale fee) is still affordable and above all you can expect an exciting and massive show.
