The Protest World Rookie Fest 2012 is on fire with tons of action at the Mottolino Swatch Snowpark and in the new Cable Park in Livigno downtown. Day 2 of the event saw the first trainings for the 126 riders in the starting list: they all shred the slopestyle set up including 3 table top and ending in a multi rail obstacles still to be completed. In the afternoom the Protest Cable Session happened in the center of Livigno awarding a 1.000€ prize money to grab in a “cash for trick” contest.
But the Protest World Rookie Fest is not just about competing. The program of day 2 included also the workshop “Wanna be a Snowboard Pro” by Bob Klein from USA. Bob was one of the very first pro ever, today he is in the “snowboard hall of fame” and he works as a professional athlets manager in Octagon, world leading company in this particular market.
