Livigno, Italy March 17th 2014 – The giant castle setup on Mottolino Fun Mountain keeps growing and growing, slowly turning into the perfect feature for the girls to take their sport to the next level. The two huge kickers (22m and 28m table) feature a halfpipe in between, which in turn boasts a step-up transfer kicker leading out of the pipe into the landings of the kickers. In addition the setup is garnished with numerous jib elements such as down and kinked stair-sets, a down rail and a cannon gap feature. Check out the graphics of the castle!

With the addition of the Wanna be a Queen winners, the riders list is now complete. Christy Prior claims a well-deserved spot with her solid technique and unique style including a sweet switch 180 method, double backflip and a nollie backside tailslide bagle-out on the rail. Klaudia Medlova showed one switch trick after the other, and perhaps, in addition to her switch backside 180 and switch backside rodeo she might try stomping that double backside rodeo at the event!
