Banked Slaloms are in Vogue right now but one of Europe’s finest is the 6th annual Volcom Banked Slalom in Kitzsteinhorn. The concept is simple, ride fast, eat some BBQ, drink beers and have fun.
As with many of the banked slaloms we have seen this year, the same faces proved once again that they are the fastest guys in the business. To no one surprise, Mr Terje Haakonsen grabbed the gold.
With the contest over, everyone headed to the Volcom Castle Rock party, to get down to the sounds of Church of Mental, Enlightment and The Shrine.
As ever, the spring glaciers are always unpredictable so the Sunday turned into a hungover powder day, result!
Thanks to Volcom and Kitzsteinhorn!
