2012 Vans Wängl Tängl Event Recap

Last week the 2012 Vans Wängl Tängl Contest went down once again. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, it was of course a special occasion. Aside from a great cash price, it is also one of the more prestigious contests that you want to be a part of. The snowboarding part consisted of some impressive tricks by the participating teams and afterwards the Waengl Taengl directly continued with the skateboarding best trick session. The amazing weather this year of course helped the incredible atmosphere of the unique contest in Mayrhofen, which was surrounded by some great musical performances and other distractions.

The snowboard results are the following:

1. The Triple Cock’s (7200 Euro Prize)
Janne Korpi, Peetu Piiroinen & Ville Uotila

2. YMCA (3900 Euro Prize)
Mathias Weissenbacher, Clemens Schattschneider & Adrian Krainer

3. The Collective (1800 Euro Prize)
Max Buri, Boris Bühler & Tor Lundström

In the skateboard contest in the end, the final 4 teams split the prize money evenly, with each skater taking home 800 Euro. The Hobnobs: Manhead & Andy Scott, Team ZWIMI: Micky Iglesias and Phil Zwijsen, The Bats: Martino Cattaneo and Kevin Blaser, The Dutchies: Nassim Guammez and Daan.
