BulgariaSki, February 25, 2013

This winter, for the first time Bulgaria will host a qualifier event for the Freeride World Tour (FWT) – the world tour for skiing and snowboarding in deep snow in big-mountain terrains.

During the March 1-3 period, Bansko will host the MAD GOAT RIDE 2013 competition, jointly organized by BEFSA (Bulgarian Extreme and Freeskiing Association) and Concept Creative. This event will not only include the FWT qualifier but also a Bulgarian national championship in the same sport.

The Freeride World Tour (FWT) is the pinnacle event for freeride skiing and snowboarding and it includes a series of competitions around the world on the steepest and most fearsome slopes in the biggest mountains on the planet.

The MAD GOAT RIDE 2013 will be held with the assistance of Municipality of Bansko, Ulen Inc., Baumit and Audi.

The participants in the competition will be divided in four groups – Ski Men, Ski Women, Snowboard Men and Snowboard Women. For the winners in all categories, there is a prize fund of over 1600 euro in addition to other equipment prizes from Stenata and XCO Sports.

The competition aims to be become an annual tradition and to develop in a larger scale event in the next few years.
