Best snowboarders congregate on Swatch watches event

First published: 25-08-2009

This month, the Stylewars competition in Australia will decide on the world's number one snowboarder, with Swatch watches again making an appearance as an extreme sports sponsor.

The 4Star Ticket To Ride World Snowboard Tour will also have a major Canadian presence, and one like no other. After all, the world number two, Sebatien Toutant, is vying for his first title - which will make him the youngest title winner at the age of 16.

He said of his appearance in the Antipodes this week: "I'm really excited to be here in Australia to ride. It's a new place and I get to ride with a different crew, and I have heard from so many other people that this is a really cool event, so I'm happy to be a part of it."

The event, which sees Red Bull join forces with Swatch watches, will also see live music and DJs keeping the nights alive each evening.

Last weekend, Swatch watches and Red Bull came together to sponsor the X-Fighters freestyle motocross final, which took place outside of London's famous Battersea Power Station.
