The Protest World Rookie Fest 2012 starts today with 126 riders from 17 nations standing out as the biggest event of the World Rookie Tour ever.
Despite the wind storm damage of last week, the Mottolino Swatch Snowpark looks in perfect shape thanks to the crew of shapers who spent night and day to create the perfect set up for the crowd of rookies just arrived in Livigno. The 8th edition of Protest World Rookie Fest is starting now with the qualification day at the snowpark and the cable-snow contest with a prize money of 1000 € cash free in the afternoon.
Yesterday night the opening cerimony was a blast thanks to the video première of the Red Bull movie “The Art of Flight” and “Rookie Trip to Chile”, a movie filmed in Chile with the best riders of the World Rookie Tour 2011 together with some South America Red Bull riders. “Rookie Trip to Chile” will be soon available free of download on the official rookie website www.worldrookietour.com
