The pan-European search for young, talented snowboarders from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Norway has been running since March 1st. Rookies under the age of 21 were asked to commend themselves to our jury of experts.
Once they had been chosen to join the final voting on the Arnette Europe Facebook page, the battle for a spot in the Arnette Europe Snow Rookie Team 2011/2012 was on. Becoming part of this team brings with it massive product support for the upcoming season and an invitation to take part in a team trip with some of the Arnette pros.
Now, the voting is over and the new rookie team is final! 140 days after the launch of the Arnette ALL EYES ON ME Snow Rookie Project 2011, three months of application period, a ten day judging period and five 7-day voting periods are over. Out of more than 60 applications the jury chose and invited the five best rookies from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Norway to join the final voting and beat the big drum for themselves.
The rookies that gathered the most „Likes” for their video won the respective voting period of their country. The Arnette Europe Snow Rookie Team 2011/2012 is now final after thousands of votes and Arnette Europe warmly welcomes Marius Bakken (NO), Andreas Grong (NO), Thomas Kigle (GER), Roland Hörtnagl (AUT), Gregor Betschon (CH) and Louis Labertrande (F) to the Arnette family! The riders’ profiles, further information and the videos of the rookies can be found here:
The winners will be sent on a 10-day trip with some of the Arnette pros in the beginning of season 2011/2012 – all inclusive of course! Further info on this trip together with a video clip will come your way soon.
