The 3rd edition of the eco-freeride contest KICK THE VIK will take place 12-14 March 2010 in the swiss alps between Andermatt and Disentis.
The riders have to hike up and they can choose their own lines and areas. The terrain contains faces for all skills. The experience of nature, consideration on nature and the correct behavior on off-piste- terrain are an important image component for this event.
Even though there is a friendly atmosphere, it‘s still a freeride competition. It‘s categorised in men and women but not in different disciplines! The judging will be done by video analysis from each rider. There is a riders voting at the mountain hut during the event and a public voting on our new website after the event. The competition will be carried out on the best sunny day.
