Watch Elias Elhardt and Iouri Podladtchikov at the Air and Style in Beijing, China on the 4th of December 2010 in the Olympic Sports Center Stadium. It is set to be the first 6Star event in China. With the full size Air & Style 42m high stadium jump the riders will find perfect conditions to battle for the ring of glory and 1.000 TTR-Points. As always the Air & Style presents international top music acts to make it the unique and powerful happening it has been since 1994.
“Women in Snowboarding — A History” is the fifth video segment from a collection cut out of the 2009/2010 Swatch TTR TV Show series and is the first part of three that will focus on influential women in snowboarding and the development from the early days.
Silvia Mittermueller also shares their views on the importance of the TTR Tour for women.
Bene Mayr just came back from Stockholm and told us about his 3rd place at the King of Style. Congratulation Bene!
Here is a little recap of the event and Bene’s performance:
The organizers had announced one of the biggest city jump ever done with a 19m deck. All the riders were excited about this idea but the jump wasn’t tested before so the first try of TJ Schiller was a bit scary (he landed hard on the deck, 2m before the landing). And after 10 riders, the organizers decided to postponed the quali and re-shape the whole jump.
After a long break, the 17m deck jump was open for practice and everything worked well. The qualification format was really simple, as they had to change the schedule, 2 runs best one count! Only 8 riders, among them Bene Mayr, were qualified for the head to head final with the pre-qualified riders (Sammy Carlson, Simon Dumont, Paul Bergeron, Bobby Brown, Jon Olsson, Kevin Rolland, Andreas Håtveit and Jacob Wester).
For the final, the shaper had made the kicker better and the in run was longer so everyone was stocked on the jump after the first trainings. The audience was big for this final day. The final field was one of the most impressive one with the top 3 of the last X Games Big Air. The weather wasn’t the easiest to handle (rain and wind) but still good enough for the riders to ensure the show!

This is a video that Patrick Guimez sent us. He was bailing during a bmx contest in France. Luckily nothing too bad happened and Patrick is feeling ok. Patrick knows why he is wearing a TSG hardshell helmet. So never ride without your helmet!
