Nissan White Style presented by Kona

On 2 February, the third Nissan White Style presented by Kona took place, in the process showcasing some stunning displays of raw talent in Leogang, Austria.

Slopestyle is proving a popular format, challenging riders and proving popular with the spectators. Norway’s Trond Hansen won the contest by showing the crowd a trick loaded run with lots of style.

“It was a great day for me,“ Hansen said. “Riding the snow wasn’t that difficult like I thought, I got good grip and enjoyed every minute. Well, dirt is the better choice of course for me, but I had fun, real fun and now I am really motivated for the upcoming season.”

Here’s some photos from the event.

The young Swedish rookie Martin Söderström impressed the judges with a 360-tailwhip


Benny Korthaus rocked the course and the spectators went nuts when they saw the height of his jumps


He pulled a 360-table top and a backflip at the first two doubles followed by a big 360 from the huge step down box and a backflip tabletop at the last obstacle. Impressed? We are…


Straight from the start and into two huge doubles. Here’s Christoph Wagner styling over the first


Andi Wittmann used the first two doubles to do a 360 and a x-up-one-footed backflip, table toped out of the satellite dish, barspinned the step-up, ended his run with a big tailwhip indian air and got third


After the riders had warmed up by drinking Hot Bull in the chilling Nissan Dome and the sun had gone down, the lights were turned on and it was time for the finals


Brit Lance McDermott going high and no-handed


After a short break for the judges to eliminate the best five riders, Trond was holding his €2,000 cheque in his hands


There could only be one winner. In his final run Trond Hansen produced a 360-table top, backflip, a clean table top one-foot, a barspin onto the step-up and he landed one of the highest jumps in the contest, with a perfect frontflip on the last double
