KIDS SHRED

More than 20 kids joined the „Kids Shred“ and got coached by former Air & Style winner Marko Grilc, Ästhetiker veteran Steve Gruber and Wolle Beer. Photographer Markus „Fischi“ Fischer was documenting the action and provided each kid with a personal Pleasure-Mag cover-shot. The whole gang invaded the pump track course in Finkenberg after riding with the guides from Bikeguide.Tirol. The young shredders demonstrated they are not only pushing on the board but also on two wheels.

One more day the weather played along, and spirits were high when riders tried to outdo their competitors. Some pocket money was up for grabs for most creative, stylish, or difficult tricks. Among the riders joining was also Olympic medalist Stale Sandbech from Norway who was showing off his skill set on the quarterpipe during the session and impressed everyone watching. 

Organizers are implementing all official Covid-19 requirements to make sure the weekend is safe and carefree for everyone involved. It is important though that every visitor is also taking over self-responsibility and contributing. Solidarity and paying an eye to current measures will make it a relaxed winter kick-off. Schedule changes are possible, depending on potential new official requirements.
