BURTON RAIL DAYS presented by MINI is one of largest indoor street snowboard contests in the world. The best rail riders from across the country will converge in the heart of Tokyo, Japan at Roppongi Hills Arena with the chance to walk away with a $27,000.00 cash purse. The 4th annual event promises to culminate with a mixture of art, music, and world class snowboarding.
The field of riders for Burton Rail Days isn’t your typical line up of competitors. These guys won’t be found showcasing their talents in the Olympics, rather spending countless nights stacking video clips in the streets. These urban assailants make street snowboarding look effortless. They are truly masters of a unique craft
New to the event this year we have incorporated an online voting component that gives one “wildcard” rider the chance to compete in the 2014 Burton Rail Days presented by MINI. We are encouraging any rider who thinks they have what it takes to send us their footage. The videos will be judged by an online panel, and the winner will have the chance to compete in front of 5,000 spectators at the Roppongi Hills Arena. Please head to http://burtonraildays.com/english/entry/ for more details.
So mark your calendars for November 15, 2014, 5:00pm (JST) – 5:00am (EST). This is going to be an event that you won’t want to miss.
