NEW COMPETITION FOR SCOTTISH FREESTYLERS
Monday August 22, 2016 - Email this article to a friend

Snowsport Scotland, the country's National Governing Body, has launched the Scottish Park & Pipe Triple Crown. NEW

The contest takes place in September and will consist of three individual events, during which this year's Scottish freestyle champion will be decided.

The Scottish Indoor Slopestyle Series is the first of the three events and will be held at Snowfactor, Braehead, on 10th September.

Competitors will then take part in the Dryslope Open and finally the Mountain Open.

The Triple Crown Champion will be determined based on the number of British Snow Tour (BST) points accumulated over the three events.

GB park and pipe riders have already signed up, so the best quality of riding can be expected during the events.

"We are delighted to be launching the Triple Crown, which we firmly believe will become the events to be at this season," Graham Mounsey, Snowsport Scotland's Development Officer, said about the upcoming series.

"The events emerged following a consultation earlier this year with clubs, coaches and facilities involved in Park & Pipe competitions and training programmes to develop a new and improved way to determine the overall Scottish Park & Pipe Champion on an annual basis, and we believe we have done just that by launching the Triple Crown," Mounsey continued.

"Competitors will have the opportunity to enter into the individual events in the series, by which their points will contribute towards BST rankings."

Preceding the Scottish Indoor Slopestyle Open, Snowsport Scotland is hosting its annual and Scottish Dryslope Alpine Championships on 3rd and 4th September at the Midlothian Snowsports Centre.

The event will form part of the National Governing Body's Summer Alpine Series.

"Historically the Alpine Dryslope event has always proven to be a huge success, and we are expecting this year to be no different," said Snowsport Scotland's CEO Rob Claridge.  

"The event offers a great opportunity for keen snowsports enthusiasts and competitors to get together and share this unique experience. In an event like this we see outstanding camaraderie, as well as competitive streaks shining through," Claridge went on to say about the championships.

"The atmosphere encourages entrants to compete at their highest capabilities, often achieving outstanding results."

The first day of the Alpine Championships will see slalom races for minis (U10/U12) and seniors, as well as the much anticipated Team Dual Slalom, and the second day a GS race for all ages.

Competitors can register online for all of Snowsport Scotland's events at www.snowsportscotland.org.

Entrants into the Dryslope Alpine Championship have until 1st of September to register, and for the Indoor Slopestyle Open, until the 8th September.
