Press release from: Ticket To Ride (TTR) World Snowboard Tour


Innsbruck, Austria. Suspense hangs in the crisp Arctic air as Norway prepares to host the world’s supreme transition riders at one of the most important happenings on the Ticket To Ride (TTR) World Snowboard Tour, the infamous TTR FIVE(5)STAR event, The Oakley Arctic Challenge, in Midtstuen, Oslo, 26th February- 03rd March, 2007

Located 200m from the legendary Holmenkollen Arena just outside Oslo, The Oakley Arctic Challenge 07 lies at the pinnacle of snowboard progression. Taking shape under the auspices of event owner and TTR patron Terje Haakonsen (NOR), The Oakley Arctic Challenge has taken quarterpipe construction to a higher technical dimension. As part of the safety-bred TTR Quarterpipe Project led by Haakonsen (NOR), the 10m high structure is designed using groundbreaking computer planning software to help eliminate G-force exposure and make the ride is as smooth as possible. Added to this, a huge drop-in ramp at the top of the in-run has been built on top of the natural slope profile - to provide riders with enough speed to showcase their creative streaks, and attempt to quell Heikki Sorsa’s (FIN) still unbeaten 2001 World Record, 9.3m air off the coping. With a $50,000USD prize purse, a gold Oakley watch, the event title and up to 850 TTR Ranking Points up for the taking, The Oakley Arctic Challenge promises to be one of the highlight events of the season.

Riders qualified into The Oakley Arctic Challenge based on the current & 05/06 TTR Top Ten, a handful of wildcards, and the Top 3 podium winners of this season’s TTR FIVE(5)STAR Chevrolet Grand Prix held in Breckenridge, USA; TTR SIX(6)STAR O’Neill Evolution from Davos, Switzerland; and local contest, Transition Mission, recently run in Varingskollen, Norway. Amongst the 24-man line-up of global present day heroes and stars of the future is reigning event title-holder and TTR World Nr 5, Henning Marthinsen (NOR) fresh from his 2nd place result at recent TTR FIVE(5)STAR event Crans Montana Champs Open; TTR Top Ten American challengers Steve Fisher (USA) & Danny Davis (USA) compete alongside Japan’s best including Fumyuki Murakami (JAP), Scandanavian snowboard souls, Miikka Hast (FIN), Kim Rune Hansen (NOR) and, of course, Terje Haakonsen (NOR). Wildcards include Arthur Longo (FRA), winner of TTR FIVE(5)STAR event O’Neill Pro Freestyle in Avoriaz, and the rookie line-up is headed up by12-year-old ripper Dimi De Jong (NED). Each rider will take part in daily warm-up sessions starting Monday through to the climax of Saturday’s jam format Finals.
We’ve got perfect pre-event conditions for construction,’ states Henning Anderson, The Oakley Arctic Challenge CEO, ‘With cold, stable temperatures, the snow is already in the arena, all the scaffolding is up and Claes Hoegstrom has started shaping. Our in-run will possibly be the largest in competitive snowboarding history - 150m long and 64m in height.
We’ve got a hell of a rider line-up with a great combination of really strong up-coming transition talent like Arthur Longo and highly experienced riders like Terje.
We are really proud to have such fantastic riders competing in The Oakley Arctic Challenge this year.’

Watch LIVE broadcasting on TacTV available on Monday through Friday, the daily scheduled warm-up sessions from noon until 15.00 C.E.T.

Extensive accompanying and congress programme provides variety

  • 3rd “International Football and Financial Conference” on 20 - 21 February 2007 with prominent participants like Lothar Matthäus
  • New Health & Happy Fitness Zone in the fitness and wellness community 


Whether it’s gymnastics, the biathlon or ice hockey – when the medals are awarded, Russian athletes are always first in line. The importance of sport to the region along with the enormous potential of the rapidly growing consumer markets in Russia and the surrounding area – for the international sport specialised trade in particular – prompted the organisers of ispo in Munich to venture eastwards and establish a platform there for the international sports equipment and fashion sector. After its successful premiere in the year 2005, ispo Russia developed into the most important sports equipment platform for Russia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia in less than two years, thus generating new impetus for the region. On 19 - 22 February 2007, ispo Russia now takes place for the fourth time at the Crocus Expo Centre in Moscow. 


On a total of 11,500 square metres, visitors to the trade fair have the opportunity to examine innovations from the outdoor, board sport, team sport and running areas as well as current products from ski, fitness, bike and racket suppliers. Around 300 brands will be presenting at ispo Russia winter 07. Apart from Blizzard, Craft, EKE, Head, Joy Sportswear and Killtec, brands like Mammut, MDC Sportswear, New Balance, Salewa, Tao Technical Wear, Tatonka, Tecnica, The North Face, Trespass Viking and X-Socks have already confirmed they will be taking part. In contrast to ispo in Munich, the Moscow event is open to sport consumers too for the last day of the fair.

Aside from the product presentations, a varied accompanying and congress programme helps the participants to get to know the special character of the Russian market, to make contacts and get started successfully in business together. On 20 - 21 February 2007, the third “International Football and Financial Conference” takes place. Under the title “Global Sponsoring in Professional Sport”, subjects like successful strategies and the prospects of sport sponsoring are discussed by top directors and executives from European football along with marketing specialists from high-ranking sport organisations and large companies such as Deutsche Telekom.


While the first day’s speakers – who also include Lothar Matthäus, Germany’s former record-breaking footballer – will mainly be attending to the topic of football sponsoring, the following day is planned for a colourful mixture of contributions on promotion strategies in motor sport, skiing, ice hockey, handball and basketball. The presenter at these top-class rounds of discussion is Andrey Simonov, marketing director of FC Dynamo Moscow. Altogether, the organisers are expecting more than 500 participants from the international sports sector.


New at ispo russia is the “Health & Happy Fitness Zone”, which is presented by the fitness and wellness community. Apart from training equipment to improve physical fitness, a real oasis of well-being awaits the visitor here. Massages, yoga and relaxation exercises as well as anti-stress and regeneration programmes invite you to relax, ensuring as much refreshment as the wellness drinks mixed at the “Fitness Bar”.


Anyone who wishes to do some active sport shouldn’t forget their gym shoes on 21 February 2007. As part of “Fitness Day”, visitors have the opportunity to take part themselves in fitness courses led by professional trainers. In addition, the pros will be demonstrating their ability in various performance shows. The individual events of the fitness and wellness community will be accompanied by a high-quality seminar programme.
