Nike 6.0 Stairset Battle: Talma Highlights The Nike 6.0 Stairset Battle Tour was in Talma, Finland, this week to show off to the locals some of the best rail riders in the industry. The tour travels 9 different countries from the 4th December all the way through to the 15th February, featuring 45 different competitors and so much talent you’d have to put it on two food trays. This round took place in the Talma resort in Finland during record-breaking lows of -23 degrees centigrade and a stairset covered in shade all day. Blistering for the thickest of jackets.

Everybody’s eyes are on one up and coming Russian rider by the name of Denis Leontyev, who pulled out all the stops in the finals of the Finnish heat. His tricks included BS 450 to Boardslide, FS 360 to 50-50 180 out, FS Blunt 270 Tailpress, FS Blunt 270 Tailpress 180 out, and Switch BS 180 to 50-50 BS 180 Revert. Naturally, he stomped the competition and took the title at Talma with ease, knocking a full set of talented Finnish riders into 2nd through to 10th. Unlucky! With videos like this though, nobody was surprised.

The next stop on the tour will be the resort of Vallnord, Andorra, where everybody will be watching to see if our talented Brits decide this is really worth trying for. We’re just taking our time – getting warmed up.
