Red Bull Jib Ski Kings: Markus Eder is the King!April 6th, 2011 by admin received Comments Off Tweet
Markus Eder is the King of the Red Bull Jib Ski Kings! 19 riders, pros and amateurs, struggled on Sunday April 3rd in this special contest. In a beautiful sunny day, on the Spitzbuhl slope of Alpe di Siusi, the twenty years old skier from Alto Adige won the battle.
The concept of this contest is something new and different from all the others. Instead of the huge artificial structures of the park, the riders had to deal with natural obstacles put on an ordinary slope. For once, nature was the protagonist.
So the riders didn’t have large structures and they had to be really creative to perform nice tricks on those strange obstacles like haycocks and natural rails.
First place went to Markus Eder, while second was Mcrae Williams, from USA, and third Andreas Bacher. Among the amateurs, first was Michael Dursan, then Julian Stuppner and third Hannes Zemmer. The skiers were judged on quantity of tricks, variety, esecution/style, use of the track.
