East Rookie Fest

From Spain to Czech Republic, the World Rookie Tour is crossing Europe for the East Rookie Fest that will take place in Spindleruv Mlyn, Svaty Petr in Czech Republic from March 18th to 20th, 2011.

The East Rookie Fest was established in 2008 and since the first edition attracted riders from all over Europe, including scandic countries, South and East Europe. The format of the this event is unique as the set up consist of halfpipe, rails and jump in the same run, realizing a “super slopestyle”.

“The World Rookie Tour is growing year after year and we are super happy to have now new stops in East Europe. It’a a great opportunity for riders to grow and make the progression upgrading too. Let’s see who will qualify for the big final in Ischgl!!” stated Meinhard Trojer from World Rookie Tour commitee.

The event in Spindleruv Mlyn will assign 2 all-inclusive tickets for the 4Star Protest World Rookie Finals in Ischgl, Austria, from 4 to 11 april 2011 and many snowboard goodies from the sponsors. In addition all riders on Rookie and Grom podiums, both boys and girls, will be qualified as well for the Protest World Rookie Finals.

Immediately after Czech Republic, the World Rookie Tour will move to Romania for the first edition of the Transilvania Rookie Fest in Arena Platos. It will be a 2Star slopestyle from 25th to 27th of March 2011 and the last chance to get qualified for the Protest World Rookie Finals 2011.
