    WSF World Rookie Fest 2013 – Livigno, Italy – Part 1


    by Extreme

    Blue Sky and a perfect Mottolino Snowpark welcomed the day 1 at the 2013 WSF World Rookie Fest in Livigno. With 138 registered riders it is the largest only youth snowboard event ever organized in the history of World Snowboard Federation (WSF) and TTR World Snowboard Tour.

    As the number the participation was more than the expectation, the program schedule was changed and the day 1 turned in training and qualification for the Heat 1, with male groms and all the girls. The riding level was extremely high already during the first training and it culminated in an incredible run by 13 years old norwegian ripper Kleveland Marcus: switch backside 900, front side 720, backside double cork 1260 and cab 540. The feeling from the spectators was more to watch a pro event than a rookie slopestyle.

    Day 2 at the 2013 WSF World Rookie Fest was another great day of riding, sun and fun at the Mottolino Snowpark. The daily program was focused to the qualification for Heat 2 where 68 male rookies challenged for 16 spots in the finals.
    The weather conditions were pretty good, and the snowy forecast turned into an almost sunny day. Among the best tricks of the day, double backside rodeo, frontside 1080 and Swiss rising star Simon Bürki resulted the best riders in the field. As usual many scandic rider got a spot for the finals.
