What a weekend!
On Saturday the Shot in Thrill & #style4date took place for the first time in combination.
In the morning the LINES photographer hid at 3 different spots on the downhill track and took some really nice shots of the riders.
Afterward, we continued with #style4dates at the last photo spot – the step-up.
The number of participants has tripled since last year. This time the girls could fight for a date, too. Paula Zibasa and Manuela Walder proved not only through style but also through courage how much they deserve their dates.
On Sunday followed the first GIANT Top 50 downhill race.
It was to be a race of a different kind – on a shortened track, from step-up on the finish line at the former Dirtpark. The riders could ride as many laps as they wanted to qualify. This racing mode was very popular with the participants, because who doesn’t like shredding countless runs and can win money at the same time?
But in the end, there was only one winner – Local Hero Andreas Kolb! Followed by Patrick Butler in second place and Bikepark Schladming rider Erich Wieland in third place, the fastest Women Paula Zibasa also won € 150,- in prize money and cool prizes. But also a fastest Young Gun was awarded – none other than Nico Ofner.
