Austrian Masters 2009 Slope Style

Last week, the 2009 Austrian snowboard freestyle championships ended in Westendorf spectacularly.

Final of “Shred Down Austrian Masters”

Last weekend Westendorf became the unofficial snowboard capital of Austria. During the course of the event titles were handed out in the disciplines of Superpipe and Slopestyle. The master in the pipe had already been selected the weekend before last in Innsbruck/Seegrube,
therefore, yesterday the best park riders had to be found.

Pushed by the dream of becoming Austrian master, the riders showed breath-taking and spectacular tricks. In perfect weather conditions international and local riders presented a great show to the spectators.

Herby Thaler from Styria showed three perfect runs and became Austrian Slopestyle champion. Claudia Fliri won the women’s ranking. Fabio Projaska became best rookie. Wolle Beer from Innsbruck won the combination of Pipe and Park. Sandy Gecek was in total the best woman and Johannes Handle became in total best rookie. Chris Hohlrieder showed the best run of the day and the local Simon Pircher was unbeatable on the rails.

The performances of the riders and the chilled atmosphere during the contest and at the party made the event special and unique.

The n.asa, the Ästhetiker und the Shredheadz want to thank everybody for showing up. See you next year.
