X OVER RIDE turns the Kitzsteinhorn into a freeride stomping ground
The course is set: On March 28, the 3*X OVER RIDE on the Kitzsteinhorn will be the big season finale for freeriders . For the riders, it’s all about finding the best line on the face of the Lakarschneid and collecting points – both when it comes to the ranking of the Austrian Freeride Series (AFS), as well as a starting place in the Freeride World Tour.
On March 28, Zell am See-Kaprun will once again be in the spotlight of freeride sports. As part of the prestigious X OVER RIDES, Austrian and international top riders will turn the Kitzsteinhorn into the “Place To Be”. At the 3*Qualifier, a total of 1,100 Freeride World Qualifier points are at stake, which can make the difference between victory and defeat, especially for local freeskiers and snowboarders: With the contest on the Kitzsteinhorn, the Austrian Freeride Series also enters its grand finale. Whoever comes out on top in the AFS ranking on this day may also put on the crown as the best Austrian freerider 2015.
But the contest in Pinzgau is not only high on the list of priorities for local riders. Also for international and Freeride World Tour riders the contest on the Lakarschneid is an important tour stop every year. They are on the hunt at the Kitzsteinhorn for valuable qualifier points for the fight for a starting spot or to stay in the Freeride World Tour (FWT).
Enjoy the spring sun on the glacier and party away
In addition to the starting guild, the audience will also get their money’s worth at the X OVER RIDE on March 28. From 8.30 a.m. the Langwiedbahn will take you to the Event-Village in the Langwied, from where you have an optimal view of the riders’ runs. These plunge into the powder from 9.30 am. At about 2:30 p.m., the award ceremony will take place in the Public Area before the infamous After Contest Party gets underway at 9 p.m. to celebrate the end of the season for the contestriders in style.
