To continue the trend, Nike’s Snake & Hammers comp is back next week in Montafon, Austria.
In case you didn’t catch it last year, it’s a banked slalom with slopestyle features dotted along the way. The idea is that the rider snakes his way down the course while dropping the best hammers. Better hammers = more time taken off the end result. The fastest rider wins! Pretty rad, no?
The aim is to get pro riders competing alongside local amateur champs in a whole new way. The winner gets a cool $8,000!
It all kicks off on Friday 28th March for training, with qualis held on Saturday 29th and the finals on Sunday 30th.
