Nike 6.0 Stairset Battle: Vallnord Highlights January 22nd saw the Nike 6.0 Stairset Battle circus roll into town to show off the snowboarding talent in Vallnord, Andorra. This was to be the 7th stop on the road to the Air & Style big finale in Munich on the 12th February. Lots of the local riders had their eyes on that ticket to Germany. Enjoy for everybody!

The finals took place in pitch-black darkness, but that didn’t stop the riders pulling out some awesome tricks, including front and backside 360s, as well as an impressive frontslip off the kinked ledge from Julien Vilmin. However, the rider of the day was a guy called Juan “Polan” Polanco, who managed to nail a Cab 360 to 50-50, BS 360 to 50-50 and the alleged best backside lip of the tour so far. Stomping the competition, Polanco got his golden ticket to the chocolate factory in Munich in an attempt to win $20,000. Not bad for a grind.

The penultimate stop on the tour is Kronplatz in Italy, due to kick off this weekend.
