All season long Nike has been running an am contest series called the Nike Chosen Series, as well as a video crew contest called the Nike Chosen. One winner from each event across Europe, as well as one from the US, one from China and one wildcard got chosen to come and compete in the finals here in Silvretta, Montafon Austira. The top 3 crews from the video contest are also here to compete, but they have one week to film the best edit they can that will be judged by the Nike Pro Team. Nike and Silvretta have managed to build the most insane park I’ve ever seen, complete with a 70m swoosh, scaffolding drop, full skate bowl and 3 awesome park jumps. It’s honestly one of the best sessions I’ve ever been a part of and all the AMs and video crews killed it. Tonight we vote and one AM and one video crew will become the Chosen and get $10,000 each a trip to Baldface with the Nike team. Not too bad right?
It’s been a great week here in Montafon and a lot of sick riding went down despite a few issues with the weather. A huge thank you to everyone at Nike for making it happen, to Silvretta Montafon for an insane park and to the team and all the riders for making it so much fun. Check the footage below!
