HistorySince 2004 now, the X OVER RIDE is known as a save institution for a adventerous competition Weekend up on the Kitzsteinhorn, Kaprun. What started as a small Freeride Cross Competition on the infamous Langwied developed to the seasonally contest highlight in the Freeriding, Slopestyle and Pipe scene.
The Freeriding itself has gotten even more famous on the Kitzsteinhorn with the first X OVER RIDE and due to its snow reliability and the varied off-piste terrain close to the lifts, the Kitzsteinhorn has been praised as one of the Alps’ best freeriding areas.
In 2012 the X OVER got "back to the roots" and was held as a Freeride World Qualifer stop to the Freeride World Tour for the first time.
This continues in to 2017 and the X OVER RIDE will host a FWQ *** event this year, again.
