The second Mountain Style Contest takes place in Chatel on 4-6 July with the finishing touches to the course being completed as you read this.
The Châtel Mountain Style Contest is a downhill event with both freeride and slopestyle disciplines thrown in, and some of the worlds best riders are packing their bags and heading there in pursuit of some of the €6000 prize money.
Some of the riders attending include Timo Pritzel, Lance McDermott, Steve Romaniuk and many more. For a shot at the prize money riders will have to combine impressive tricks as well as focusing on their fluidity, involvement and control to score highest.
The riders of Radical Films (Kranked), Ben Walker, the Châtel’s bikes patrols and Sébastien Giraldi (the Châtel’s bikes patrols leader) are working hard on site to offer a very interesting technical trail for the professional and amateur riders.
