News doing the rounds at last night's Forum premiere was that the international rider list for the 2010 Relentless Freeze event just got a whole load more exciting. TTR World Champion Peetu Piiroinen has confirmed his intention to enter the finals on Saturday 30th October, as has triple cork style merchant Torstein Horgmo, X-Games gold medallist Iouri 'iPod' Podlatchikov and Canadian wonderkid Seb Toots. Throw in last year's Air & Style winner Maro Grilc, plus this month's Freestyle Ch winner Gjermund Braaten, and things are looking very spicy indeed.

Now that Olympic Games preparations are no longer getting in the way, and the Battersea competition has become more established, it seems big name snowboarders from across the globe are lining up for the chance to ride (and party!) in London. The organisers have still to receive entries from several more countries, which should throw up a few more superstars, but here's the list as it stands:

Alexey Sobolev

Aljosa Krivec

Carles Torner

Carlos Manich

Dmitry Repnikov

Domen Bizjak

Fabiena Fassnacht

Gian Luca Cavigelli

Gjermund Braaten

Iouri Podlatchikov

Josep Castellet

Luka Jeromel

Don't forget, Whitelines will also be hosting a Battle of Britain contest on the Friday, the winner of which will get to pit their skills against this lot in the main final. Gulp!
