On June 19th 2010, competitors from all over the world including New Zealand, England, France, Belgium, Austria, the Netherlands and Switzerland made their way to Germany for the 6th edition of the slopestyle contest ONE BIG PARKZEIT in the JEVER SKIHALLE Neuss. For the first time ever, the contest was also part of the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour and as 3Star event handed out valuable TTR world ranking points. Elke Cogghe from Belgium and Florian Heim from Austria stood atop the podium of the snowboard competition that day.
“The quality among the snowboarders this year was as high as never before because of its TTR status. Riders came from everywhere to participate in the contest.“ sais snowboard professional and PARKZEIT judge Flo Penzinger. „Especially in the finals, the level of riding was extremely high.“ commented judge Kathrin Gappmayr in surprise.
