Lib Tech’s Downtown Throwdown Rocks Minneapolis

October 19, 2013– Hundreds of Minnesotans unpacked jackets from storage and shook the mothball fragrance off winter gear this past Saturday. Was it time for gorgeous gourd picking? Was it time to get a pumpkin spiced latte and go for a stroll in the city? On the contrary. It was all for snowboarding. Lib Tech’s Downtown Throwdown captivated a crowd of winter-clad MidWesterners who braved the weather which ran the gamut from sunshine to hail.

The crowd rejoiced as both sharpened pieces of ice and Urban riders fell from the heavens. There was a full assault on the senses. Pros and Amateurs stomped the three tiered urban course; which included nine different features allowing for the utmost creativity and choice. Downtown Minneapolis was hammered by a barrage of flashy tricks. Front flips, back flips, backside 270′s, presses, and hand plants galore; just a taste of what was thrown at the jib-tastic broham bash. Hearts and hands were warmed watching hometown heroes and international superstars slay the beast and feed the fires of their passion.

Downtown Throwdown – Teaser

Minnesota nice

New city, new features  and over $20,000 in prize money…it’s gonna be BANANAS! The DTTD has grown from a local DIY project to the most anticipated and respected urban snowboarding event in the world, while entertaining tens of thousands of people over the past seven years in Seattle and San Francisco. This year, event creators Snowboy Productions talked with sponsors and riders about the idea of bringing the DTTD to other amazing cities and the overwhelming response was Minneapolis, MN.
“It’s also a nice nod to Minneapolis-based riders like Zac Marben, Jonas & Jordan Michilot and Jake Olsen-Elm who competed in the early years and have really supported the event” said Krush Kulesza. “We’ve had an amazing run in Seattle and San Francisco, but we’re really stoked on the opportunity to move it around each year and really keep it fresh.”
This year’s line-up includes: Read More
