Among the different contests, there is the Dakine Airstrike on saturday evening, an urban slopestyle competition of pro freeriders. A very original course designed by pro riders Joscha Forstreuter and Pierre Edouard Ferry that starts on a 20 meter tall hotel rooftop, to jump onto a lower rooftop of a neighbouring building and ending up on a landing ramp in front of the hotel, a very spectator-friendly area that allows to watch the contest like you’re taking part of it! Check out last year’s DAKINE Airstrike Contest to get a closer feel! Plus, this contest is one of the selected tourstops for the FMB World Tour as a silver event.

The 2.012 edition of the DAKINE FREERIDE FESTIVAL consolidates DAKINE’s commitment to the bike scene, endorsed by over a decade of gearing up mountain bikers, with big team rider names such as Darren Berrecloth, Thomas Vanderham, Andrew Shandro, Yannick Granieri and Geoff Gulevich trusting DAKINE’s bike products (packs, gloves, shorts, jerseys) for ultimate performance.
