This season’s European Roxy Chicken Jam is heading to a new location. After six events in Innsbruck, St Moritz and Kaprun, the 7th annual jam will take place at the Nightpark Saalbach Hinterglemm from January 8 to 10.
The contest itself will take place just 200 metres from the centre of the village, meaning more people will be able to see the action. There’ll also be live gigs and night parties. The park will be shaped especially for the event, offering two jib sets at the beginning and the end of the course and a triple kicker line in the middle.
The 2009/10 season will see Roxy and Lesley McKenna team up again for some snow camps for female skiers and snowboarders.
The camps take place the weeks starting Sunday March 14 2010 and Sunday March 21 2010. They’re aimed at skiers and snowboarders who want to improve their skills, receiving expert tuition from Olympian Lesley McKenna and enjoy a luxury chalet holiday too.
Dear and Yonder is a new surf movie for the summer by Tiffany Campbell and Andria Lessler. It features well known female surfers and new names and hits the shores of Indonesia, Mexico and lots of other stunning places.
There’s an extensive tour taking place to support the movie with lots of free goodies, meet and greets and parties in conjuntion with film sponsor Roxy.
Kelly Clark continued her winning season by adding Roxy Chicken Jam Halfpipe Champ to her already long list. Clark is also in good position to claim the Swatch TTR World Champ title with a good performance in the slopestyle on Sunday.
“The title would be an amazing bonus to a really great season to me right now” said Kelly Clark. “It would just be like icing on the cake.”
Earlier in the day the Superpipe Main Event Session determined the 12 riders that would compete in the finals. TTR contender Kjersti Buass failed to qualify after pulling out of the competition following a flat landing. Kelly Clark qualified first.
