Nitro Snowboards presents

The Worldwide Riders Cup!

Introducing The Riders Cup, a worldwide digital tournament of snowboard competition randomness.

Each Rider will have 48 hours to film and complete a random trick decided by a lucky person! There are 16 riders going head to head digitally over the next few weeks to see who is the champion. The winner will receive their own Nitro Riders Cup Pro Model (whatever they want graphic) snowboard for them and their friends. We will also have some extras for the top participants (that's you!) of the #NitroRidersCup.

If you would like to join in on the fun, upload your interpretation of the current Challenge and use #NitroRidersCup. We will highlight your efforts and maybe even put your video submission head to head with some of the Worldwide Rider Cup Competitors!

This is snowboarding - there are no rules, only suggests routes.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Nitro Instagram channel @Nitrousa as this tournament has begun and will be ongoing live over the next few weeks.

Who will be the 2021 Nitro Riders Cup Champion?
