Press Release

Lausanne Slopestyle 2016 // July 2-3, 2016 // Lausanne, Switzerland

For the 2016 edition, the Lausanne Slopestyle celebrates its 5th anniversary! A great opportunity to take the event once again to the next level. More than 300 participants from all around the world are expected to ride this summer snowpark, unique in its kind. The event will take place on the 2nd and 3rd of July in Lausanne, Switzerland, Olympic capital but also urban downhill Mecca.

In five years, the Lausanne Slopestyle has become a key event for freeborders, longboarders and other downhill and freestyle adepts. The principle of the event: transform a 700m closed road into a downhill skatepark featuring similar modules as in winter snowparks. This 5th edition will again be held by the LAU ‘Riders, official association of freeborders in Lausanne.

This year, in addition to the traditional demos, some renowned guests DJs will support the show. Flexfab, rising star of the electro stage in Switzerland will mix during the big-air “best tricks session” on Saturday afternoon, motivating riders to push the limits and offering the public a unique show extending beyond the sport dimension.

“There are obvious synergies between our ride and electronic music and we want to offer the public some epic demos.” explains Yoann Chapel, Co-President of the LAU ‘Riders association.

The city of Lausanne and several local and international brands are supporting the project. The collaboration established with local partners Anticonf, and La Fièvre skatepark is maintained and joined once again by the global brand, Freebord Mfg.

Over 300 participants are expected from all around the world including Jordi Puig Ribas, considered the best freeborder worldwide and Pierre Linckenheld, locally known as #CaféPierro, the waiter on the wheels and world’s fastest barista (!
