Game of Diamonds – Season Finals with Style
19.04.2018

The QParks Tour Final was calling – and the best tour riders this tour had to offer came to celebrate freestyle one last time this season. At the Game of Diamonds, an international field of shredders was celebrating the big finale of the QParks Tour and the first contest at the Snowpark Obergurgl at the same time. Who got the best score, stomped the best trick and won the overall ranking is written below.

The QParks Tour owes a big thank you to the girlscrew of the Snowpark Obergurgl. Without them, a contest would not have been possible: Just a few days before the Game of Diamonds went down, winter visited Obergurgl one more time and dumped loads of fresh pow in the park of the girlscrew. But with some extra shifts and hours of shoveling, the girls were able to forge a fine contest line in the girlspark. The setup featured four hits: A multijib consisting of a tube, a down- and a doublekink rail, a kicker with two takeoffs (10m/14m), followed by another kicker (12m) and a multijib with a rainbow rail and a lollipop as the end section. The prizes at the Game of Diamonds were at least as massive as the setup: There was an overall prize money of about 7.000€ to win! And in addition to that, every winner got goodies by Planet Sports, Pinetime Clothing, Amplifi and QParks.

Best on Snowboard

The finale of the Groms was dominated by a Brit. Gabe Adams had the most style and beat Lukas Frischhut and Kuhar Ozbe to second and third place. In the category Snowboard Ladies Federica Sola was sending it the most. “I´m totally stoked! I really didn´t expect that. My riding was good, but I can do better. I had fun every single time.” The Italian shredqueen won before Emma Lantos and Adriana Salis. In the category Snowboard Men the Carinthian Felix Widnig took first place. With a 50-50 to Switch 50-50 on the doublekink rail he also won the Best Trick Award. Till Stromeyer and Gabe Adams took the second and third place.

Overall Tour Winners Snowboard

Winner of the Best Trick Award, winner of the day of the tour finale and overall winner of the QParks Tour finale. Felix Widnig really swept the board at the Game of Diamonds. “The most important thing at snowboarding is having fun“, Felix explains. “It´s unbelievable that QParks are celebrating their 15 years anniversary. And every year, they organize the tour again, that´s really cool. Hopefully they keep on doing that stuff for a long time!” Frederica Sola won – unsurprisingly – in the category Snowboard Ladies. And the Snowboard Grom Men were led by Gabe Adams.

A fine Ending

The Game of Diamonds was the end of a season for the books. This winter, QParks were celebrating their 15 years jubilee and wanted to celebrate their b-day one last time at the tour final. Of course a cake was a must-have then. After the final runs this season´s last birthday cake was served in the chill area of the Snowpark Obergurgl.

The QParks Tour is on summer vacation now, but will be back for more contest action next winter. Whoever wants to be part of Europe’s biggest contest tour for Men, Women and Rookies in the season 2018/19 again, should already mark the website, Facebook pagesnowboard and Instagram account of the QParks Tour. That´s where you will find all info about next winter´s QParks Tour as soon as it appears.
