No more Swatch Rocket Air. We get a new Freestyle Event in Thun

Our favorite event, the Swatch Rocket Air will definitely not take place anymore after 10 successful years. Due to the reconstruction of the ice rink Grabengut, which will be reduced in capacity, a further implementation makes no sense. The crew sees the end of the Rocket Air not as a problem but as a great opportunity. We still have a thousand ideas and will concentrate in the future with bundled forces on the event Freestyle ROOTS, which will take place from September 3-4 at the Strandbad Thun, as well as ON Lake Thun: We thank all helpers, sponsors, partners, as well as the city of Thun for the always good cooperation. See you at the Freestyle ROOTS

This was Swatch Rocket Air 2019

What do you wish for your 10th birthday? A remote-controlled car or a big cake, a clown and all your best friends? 🎂🤡 We look back on an incredibly colorful weekend and won't forget the Swatch Rocket Air 2019 anytime soon! 🎉

Winning Run Swatch Rocket Air 2019 - Dawid Godziek

Dawid Godziek wins Swatch Rocket Air 2019

Dawid Godziek takes home the cake, winning the 10th edition of the Swatch Rocket Air! The BMX turned slopestyle rider gave the crowd a spectacular run scoring 94.3 at the Gold FMB event. Even with snow falling on the castle behind the transformed ice rink, riders and spectators alike came ready to party! And party they did!

Unser Lieblingsevent, das Swatch Rocket Air findet nach 10 erfolgreichen Jahren definitiv nicht mehr statt. Durch den Umbau der Eishalle Grabengut, welche in ihrer Kapazität verkleinert wird, macht eine weitere Umsetzung keinen Sinn mehr.
Die Crew sieht das Ende des Rocket Airs jedoch nicht als Problem sondern als grosse Chance. Wir haben noch tausend Read More

🤘 Am 1. & 2. Mai 2020 geht das Swatch Rocket Air Slopestyle in die elfte Runde. Beide Tage gleich im Kalender reservieren und in den Kommentaren über das Motto rätseln 🤔
Der Trail in der @marbachegg macht richtig Spass. Damit das noch länger so bleibt suchen die Macher Support aus der Szene. Hilf mit beim Crowdfunding. Link im Profil!
