2010 LG Snowboard FIS World Cup Big Air Heads To Denver
Following the 9th FIS Snowboard World Championships in La Molina, Spain, the LG Snowboard FIS World Cup will make a grand return to the United States for the World Cup Big Air in Colorado.
This will be the first World Cup ever to be hosted by a US-American city and not only does it mark the freestyle snowboarding World Cup opener of 2011 but also the return of the big air World Cup to the United States. The last big air World Cup in the US was almost seven years ago in Mt. Bachelor, Oregon.
Since Monday, January 10th, builders have been at work on the venue in Civic Center Park. The construction includes a 101 x 300 foot ramp, which is supposed to be completed within the next 10 days.
So far, Gian-Luca Cavigelli, runner-up of last year’s Big Air World Cup, and his team mates Thomas Franc and Mario Kaeppeli have confirmed that they will be attending the event.
Even though the field isn’t complete yet, it is certain that “One Republic” will take the stage during the competition break. Originating in Colorado, the band is known across the world for their Grammy-nominated hit single “Apologize” which was a No. 1 song in 16 different countries.
