Red Bull Snowscrapers in NYC

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009

Red Bull has once again taken things to another level with the much hyped and anticipated Red Bull Snowscrapers that’s set to go off tomorrow in New York City. It’s something you don’t want to miss so here are several ways to catch it– If you’re in NY, go see it live. Otherwise, Fuel TV is webcasting it live in HD, you can watch it on the Red Bull webcast, or if you have DirectTV you might find it on MSG TV. It will also be rebroadcast on NBC February 15th.

On Thursday, February 5th, 16 of the world’s best snowboarders will compete for their piece of the massive $100,000 prize purse at Red Bull Snowscrapers. Athletes will compete against the majestic backdrop of the New York City skyline in the East River Park from 6-9 pm. The local thrash heavy metal band Anthrax is set to perform.

Travis Rice and Shaun White will both be throwing down for the hundred-gees as well as many other rippers, including: Pat Moore, Terje Haakonsen, Kevin Pearce, Danny Davis, Jake Blauvelt, JJ Thomas, to name a few.

The jump is a step up hip, set against the backdrop of Manhattan. It’s a jam session, which is defo the way to format a comp like this one. Instead of being judged on the best of a couple runs, the riders will be able to throw down as many runs as they can squeeze in. The rider who impresses the most, wins.

We’re big fans of these creative and progressive events that Red Bull consistently puts on. They do an awesome job at pushing the limits, blowing minds, and bringing huge exposure to our sports. This is the first time snowboarding at a level like will be seen in NYC so huge props to Red Bull for making it happen.
