February 5, 2010 – As spring slowly approaches China's capital, NIKE 6.0 have vowed to keep things cool in Beijing with the announcement of the NIKE 6.0 Nightrail Session, to be held February 27th at Nanshan Ski Resort. Featuring a fresh competition format, an innovative setup and a drool-worthy prize list, this all-new nighttime rail session offers Chinese snowboard fans the chance to celebrate winter's end with a bang!
The entire lower section of the resort's current terrain park will be remolded and reshaped in order to provide a new and spectator-friendly setup exclusive to this event. The drop-in zone will lead to three parallel jib features of varying difficulty, ensuring non-stop action as local rail-ninjas and beginners alike throw down their everything in order to impress the judges. Impress them and you will be rewarded, as judges will be literally throwing cash out to riders that are killing it – 50RMB per trick!
Besides the usual glory, fame and respect that we all know accompanies any rail jam, riders will be competing for some killer prizes. A special team battle will offer the winning crew the chance to design and keep their own customized set of NIKEiD shoes, while the individual prize categories will be presented with a twist. Each category winner will get to choose from 10 different girls holding mystery suitcases…and while they'll only be allowed to take home the contents of said suitcases (not the girls!) with prizes including a season pass for next year at the host resort and a set of NIKEiD shoes, winners are guaranteed to leave satisfied!
This is still, however, an event for the fans. Not only will spectators be treated to the country's highest level of jibbing, but they'll be enjoying it all with free beer and hot chocolate, great tunes provided by local DJs and numerous NIKE 6.0 giveaways including event-exclusive foam fingers and bandanas. With a new format, new setup and a whole new vibe, whether you're a shredder or spectator this is one night on the mountain you don't want to miss!
