55DSL, Diesel’s alternative sportswear brand, is the main supporter of “Ride ‘n’ Chill”, an international snowboard competition which will take place in Val Senales (BZ) on September 29th and 30th. This event is part of the “Big A – Snowboard and Skateboard Camp” and celebrates the opening of the glacier and of the season. Many international athletes like Terry Brunner, Romain De Marchi, Stephan Gruber, Tina Birbaum, Giacomo Kratter, Lukas Goller and Werner Crazzolara, will be part of the game.
The first race is an ISF Halfpipe “World Qualifier Event”. Halfpipe is a snowboard Olympic discipline and this WQE is the first international competition of the season in Europe (last year edition registered athletes from Europe, USA, South America and Japan); it will take place on Saturday, September 29th. Sunday September 30th, 16 athletes will face a 20 meters jump, engaging in scary performances 6 meters up in the sky! The prize money for both competitions is 30 million Lire. During the weekend, all companies will set up test booths for their products.
“Ride ‘n’ Chill” will take a break (or rather, “chill out”) on Saturday 29th, at 10.00 PM, with a beach party at the resort’s swimming pool: the perfect time to mingle and get to know this unique world better. The pool party will also see the World Premiere of Methodmag V2.1. The new issue, ‘Weapons of Destruction’ is a power packed production and the first issue of season 2001 / 2002.
