Creative new course
This year’s Playstreets course has been completely redesigned. The course starts off with a winch that propels the riders into a quarterpipe. There’s also an 8-meter high wallride, a kicker that will probably see some double corks, and a Jesper Tjäder-style trampoline feature. Here’s a full course breakdown with Paddy Graham.
how to get there
The Playstreets course runs straight through the heart of Bad Gastein, Austria (Google Maps). Once you’re there, you can’t miss it. The event is free for spectators to watch, just make sure to get there early to claim a prime viewing spot. Before you know it, the streets will be swarming with Red Bull and vokda-fueled revelers.
