Tons of fresh and compact snow, mirror-like ice, good music and above all, incredible floodlit mountain bike action – these are the most important ingredients for a successful White Style edition.
This extraordinary ‘snow-biking’ competition, hosted by Bikepark Leogang attracts the best riders from all over Europe year after year and 2013 won’t be an exception. Alongside Swedish slopestyle royalty (with Martin Soderstrom, Linus Sjoholm, Anton Thelander and Teo Gustavson), the crème-de-la-crème from France will also start. Apart from Antoine Bizet (2nd place at Red Bull Rampage 2012), Louis Reboul and Leo Delfour-Barsaqc have entered the event as well as Mehdi Gani who will be competing for the first time after a long injury-break.
From Great Britain, defending champion Sam Reynolds, as well as Sam Pilgrim and Grant “Chopper” Fielder will also leave their cozy island to come and compete at White Style. Niki Leitner and his cousin Patrick Leitner, current FMB World Tour European AM Champion will attempt to return the title into Austrian hands while the aspiring Peter Henke will represent Germany.
