Travis Rice (USA) wins at the probably best Air & Style ever.
In front of a record-breaking crowd of 27.500 enthusiastic spectators Travis Rice (24/USA) prevailed and won against Risto Mattila (25/FIN), Antti Autti
(21/FIN) and Munich local David Benedek (26/GER). His winning jump was a Double Backflip 180 followed by a Cab 540. From the beginning of the competition, the world´s best snowboarders outbalanced each other with first class jumps -- a level not seen before.
But there were many winners that night. Local David Benedek made history ba landing the first double cork 1260 in competition. Nicolas Müller nearly landed a ONE-FOOTED 720 and Eero Ettala stomped the first switch double backflip in competition history.
In an epic battle Shaun White stomped his first cab 1260 but couldn't beat Antti Autti's frontside 1260.
In the Freestyle Motocross competition, the 18-year-old Wiley Fullmer (USA) won the final against Beau Bamburg (USA).
The Snowboarder Rookie Challenge and with it a starting position in the main field of next year's Air & Style was won by Mikkel Bang (16/NOR).
Andrew Hourmont, founder and organizer of the Nokia Air & Style 06: "We are proud to have set a new all time visitor record with 27.500 spectators at the Air & Style in its second year in Munich. Both snowboarders and FMX-riders were fantastic, so were the bands. The spectators were also enthused by the new setup. I think the Olympic Stadium has not seen such a party very often in the past. And we will really try to make an effort to beat tonight's event with the Air & Style 2007 in December 2007."
