Olympic, TTR and World Champions – they all have won BEO titles in the past, including Kelly Clark, Jamie Anderson, Kevin Pearce, Peetu Piiroinen and Iouri Podladtchikov.
Rider registration will open on Nov. 20th, 2012 on register-for-events.com. Reserve your spot now, as they are limited. Registration is open until Dec. 20th, 2012. Join now to battle with the world’s best riders.
Next to spectacular freestyle Snowboarding spectators can look forward to a very special live concert on Friday, February 8th, 2013. The BEO and LAAX are proud to present Left Boy for his very first concert in Switzerland! The music of the 23 year old, based in New York, is a mix of Electro, Dubstep, Rap and Pop. He writes, composes and produces all of his arrangements on his own. After having paramount success with video releases online, Left Boy will stop at the Riders Palace during his first live-tour.
