Behind The Scenes Of The Cattleman's Rail Jam Part 2

The Cattleman's rail is the main access way to the lifts at Mt Buller therefore it is a huge effort by the resort and park staff to shut it down and start the build for the event. The stairs are shut from midday with an event kick off at 6pm

Just before kick off and all credit to the park staff.

Chris Jepson has been on the mic from the start back in 2006

Judges for the event Russell Holt editor of Transfer magazine and Shane Carter Burton Australia brand manager.Chris Jepson and Paul from SITW where also on the judging panel for the event.

The park stuff worked during the event making sure the set up held up during the contest and the very difficult weather conditions.

Jye Kearney was riding with a radio mic, it will be interesting to hear that audio.

The judges form, notice the number of landed tricks from Robbie and Jye (1 & 3).

Of course what rail event is complete without a double backflip.

1st Robbie Walker
2nd Jye Kearney
Best Trick Mikey Williams (50/50 Kink)

Cattleman's is done for another year and all involved give yourself a high five and get ready for next year.

Good Times Go Bad

Everyones favorite Burton rep Shirvo did not have the best morning. While riding with Nick Gregory and Mitch Allan (who sent us these exclusive iphone pics) Shirvo fell on a rock just under the snow and snapped his femur. To make matters worse the ski patrol thought it was just a dislocated hip and tried to yank it back into place.

We all wish Shirvo a fast recovery so that he is back riding in no time.

Do You Want To VIP It At MTV Snow Jam?

MTV Snow Jam 2009 is on and at Falls Creek Thursday the 30th of July, the event is happening at the base of Wombats Ramble in the new Mirvac hotel. Apart from music from Cut Copy DJs and Phrase, MTV are also removing the existing rails from the busy staircase and replacing them with custom built features so that the event is happening in a true urban environment.

Tickets are free and MTV expect 4000 people for what is going to be a huge party. With $10,000 up for grabs and a solid rider list including internationals Charles Reid (Stylewars 08 Grand Master) and Mark Sollars (Did you see the last Sandbox film?) joining the usual suspects of Tom Pelley, Jye Kearney, Robbie Walker and the rest of Australia's top level riders. The snowboard side of things goes from 5:30pm – 6:30 pm and runs into the music event. Should be a ridiculous night with good riding and the biggest party Falls Creek has ever seen.

We have 2 tickets to the MTV VIP party to giveaway. Entrants must be over 18 and able to get to the event. The winner will be drawn Monday the 27th of July at Midday and will be notified straight away so that they can plan their adventure.

To go into the draw all you have to do is email seemymethod@burton.com.au and tell us 2 Burton riders who will be competing in the MTV Snow Jam. Make sure you include a day time contact phone number. The tickets don't include accommodation or transport so check out the MTV website here for all that information.

Good Luck.

A new addition over the years has been the wild card places. The wildcards are designed to give up and coming riders a chance to hit the infamous Cattleman's rail while also stealing some thunder from the pros. This year the qualifiers took place in the TSC park and here is TSC coach Alex Cordingly winning himself a card.

Jye Kearney came along to support the crew competing for the wildcard spots.
