I didn’t expect so many spectators when I woke up to heavy rainfalls Saturday morning. It cleared up during the day and I had a lot of fun, I think everyone else did too. The competition format was way different than any other contest I’ve done before, and I think it made it a little more interesting for the spectators, too. “The Sports Syndicate’s Rich Swisher, expert veteran in the field of foreign events, said both the promoter and event were world class, and he expects this event to follow in the footsteps of the Red Bull X Fighters as another “must do” event for the world’s FMX elite.All three riders will find themselves competing once again at Winter X this January in Aspen, CO. 2005 Gold Medal Winner “Best Trick” Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg will be looking for a repeat, while Ailo Gaup and Nate Adams will be doing their best to take the gold for themselves.About the Nokia Air & Style ’05The renowned European event is a unique combination of Freestyle Motocross games, Snowboarding competitions and music, including that talent of US HipHop star, Xizibit.
