Oakley's Sammy Carlson Set To Host Sammy C Invitational
Oakley’s Sammy Carlson is set to host a world-class Big Air Contest featuring the best freeskiers in the world at Windell’s Academy in Hood River, Oregon on July 1, 2010.
The event will be open to the public and all of the campers at session 3 of Windell’s are invited to watch as well. The competition will be primarily invited riders, but there will be a few open spots for people to qualify.
Sammy says that he plans to build one of the biggest step overs ever built and hopes to make it a contest everyone will enjoy. “The contest will be very relaxed. Everyone will get as much time needed to fill comfortable on the jump then we will have a qualifying round where a number of athletes will advance to the finals. The Final will be a 1 hour Jam Session where every one will slay it!”
Oakley’s Jossi Wells, Simon Dumont, Phil Casabon and Henrik Harlaut are among the confirmed competitors.
