Bronze... Silver... Gold & Glory at the Axamer Lizum

Riders as far as you can see – and this was pretty far on this sunny Saturday at Axamer Lizum. An imposing amount of 99 freestylers battled for goodies and prize money at the Gold & Glory. This is not only a visitors record for the new Golden Roofpark, it also tops the numbers of competitors of the QParks Tour 16/17.

In its very first season, the new Golden Roofpark at Axamer Lizum already became the number one choice for shred heads around Innsbruck. However, the terrific amount of 99 starters at the Gold & Glory got the organizers of the contest really stoked. Snowboarders from all over Europe obviously didn’t want to miss this premiere and tested the new park on its shredability during the contest.

There were several reasons that made this seventh QParks Snowboard Tour Stop at the brand-new Golden Roofpark such a success: blue skies and sunshine, a nice slopestyle setup featuring a rail, a tube, four kickers and a corner – besides a park full of enthusiastic freestylers. Here’s who, out of 46 snowboarders went home packed with goodies from WeAre, QParks, AMPLIFI and Pinetime Clothing plus extra pocket money in a total value of 1,200 €.

Fame and honor was given to the Austrian snowboarder Felix Reicher, who became first place in the category Snowboard Men, followed by Henrik Meyn (NLD) and Linus Birkendahl (GER). The second, Dutch snowboarder Henrik, additionally convinced the judges with a Hardway Frontside 270 on the Down Rail which rewarded him with the title for the Best Trick.
