Martin on the fast lane

Martin Noerl becomes one of the top riders in the European Snowboard Cross. A third place in the final ranking of the SBX European Cup secures Martin a ticket for the Snowboard Cross World Cup season 2012/13.

After a very successful winter, the 18 year old Martin Nörl from Adlkofen (Germany) managed to gain one of the top positions in the Snowboard Cross European Cup – a third place in the final ranking.

In the last race of the European Cup that took place in Lenk/ Switzerland, Martin became fourth and sixth in both qualifying heats. This secured him the third place in the final ranking of the SBX European Cup 2012 and results in a fixed starting position for the upcoming World Cup races.

A surprise if you look back to the start of Martin's season: In January he could qualify for all finals but then didn't advance beyond the quarter finals which left him at position 20 in the ranking. But he grew stronger with every contest and wasn't eliminated early anymore in any European Cup contest. He became second once and finished seven times in the top 10.

"It's a great feeling to gain yourself a starting position in the World Cup"", says Martin. "I was able to improve my performance during the season and my third place is a great progression compared to last year's 10th place. In the European Cup, more than 100 riders are fighting for points and it was one of my dreams to reach the top one day."

Omar Visintin from Italy is the second Völkl team rider placed in the top 5 in the SBX European Cup, he became 4th with 1700 points. Maybe the great results can be linked to the lightning-swift Coal Race, the riders' favorite weapon of choice!?!

DEAD END

(29.09.2014)

What should you do when there’s no snow in the valley at the end of the season and most of the resort is already closed? It's pretty simple, rent a camper, head for the snowy mountain passes and start exploring the backcountry with a splitboard or build a kicker next to the street! That's what Völkl riders Simon Pircher, Peter Walchhofer and Marc Grossgasteiger did at the end of last season. Together with photographer Alex Papis and filmer Balint they spent ten days in a very small space but wit[Leer más]

THE NEXT GENERATION

(16.09.2014)

Each year, at the end of the winter season, a recurring story unfolds in Ischgl, with groms as far as the eyes can see and racoon faces wherever you look and everywhere a babble of German, Spanish, Japanese and Finish echoes through the streets of the Austrian mountain village. Welcome to the Völkl World Rookie Finals! The crowds have been as big for the event than this year: After a long season with ten events on five continents more than 110 promising snowboarders from 24 nations travelled to [Leer más]
