In 2012, the Ride Shakedown will be gearing up for its 11th Canadian edition at Mont Saint-Sauveur (Saint-Sauveur, Quebec) on March 30-31. The slopestyle course (including both a big air and a rail component) will see 40 invited professional athletes from far and wide along with 80 promising amateurs battle it out for a total purse of $50,000.
This 11th edition is guaranteed to send adrenaline levels through the roof for athletes as well as the thousands of spectators expected on site. On the agenda: a halftime show, snow and skate booths, an autograph session with pros, after partys, live DJs and much more. In other words, an incredible opportunity for thrill-seekers to discover snowboard culture and everything it has to offer.
This international snowboard event has seen incredible growth since 2002 thanks to you! Supported by athletes and the public alike, the Ride Shakedown has first made its mark in North America through its original Canadian edition in 2002 only to introduce the US edition in 2010 and a European edition (Germany) in 2011. Its unique competition format makes the event a laid-back festive gathering that is appreciated by athletes who compete and the fans who soak it up.
