While rookies from all the world are counting the days to the first european stop of the WRT in Livigno, many ex World Rookie Fest riders competed and prevailed in the first 6 Star TTR event of the season, the Air & Style in Beijing

Sven Thorgren, winner of the 2014 Air&Style in Beijing, competed in the Rookie Fest for many years and won a Grom World Champion title in 2009 and the World Rookie Champion title in 2012. The riders field of the 2014 6Star TTR Air&Style in Bejing included many other ex World Rookie Fest riders such as Kim Rune Hansen, Peetu Piiroinen, Gjermund Braaten, Emil Andre Ulsletten, Matthia Weissenbacher, Tor Lundstrom and Jonas Bosinger (2013 World Rookie Champion). All of them competed back in the days in the rookie fest events around the world and few days ago were challenging for the podium of the biggest snowboard event in town.
