Profile "YMCA" - Mathias Weissenbacher (C) (AUT), Clemens Schattschneider (AUT) & Adrian Krainer (AUT)
Team YMCA stands for "Young-Mathias-Clemens-Adrian".
We are three young guns from all over Austria and we first met in a school named Ski-Handelsschule at Schladming. Since that time we are learning new tricks together, travel around the world and enjoy good times on the mountains or at a party.
Everybody of us is competing on the biggest competitions around the globe, like Clemens competed at the Air & Style Innsbruck and Mathias & Adrian competed at the first TTR-World Championships at Oslo.

Snowboard Tängl Team #10 - Official Confirmation – The Collective
Profile “The Collective” – Jamie Nicholls (C) (GBR), Boris Bühler (SUI) and Tor Lundström (SWE)
Transform Gloves had to change their team due to injuries but they are back with some friends to call themselves "The Collective".
Boris Bühler (SUI)
Boris is a man of few words who let’s his riding do the talking. Sounds like a cliché but put him on a snowboard and watch him get loose. One of the most technically gifted riders on the gnarliest rails but equally at home on big booters in the park or in the back country. Winner of the Nike Stairset battle in Switzerland last season and frequently gets the ender part on the “Crap show” edits filmed in his Native resort of Laax. You are most likely to find Boris hitting the rail section o the Wangl tangl penken set up. Boris has just been awarded a place on 32, Transform Gloves and K2 Snowboards European teams.

SNOWBOARD TÄNGL TEAM #8 – OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION – OFF THE WALL
Profile "Off The Wall" - Iouri Podladtchikov (C) (CH), Arthur Longo (FRA) & Eric Willet (USA)
Off the Wall by name, off the wall by nature, the 8th Official Tängl Team is packing all star punch and glamor to boot. Starting out with former Wängl Tängl pugilist and Team Off the Wall Captain, Iouri Podladtchikov, fresh off his Burton European Open and World Champion Halfpipe wins, I-Pod is quickly heading to the states to the US Open try and put the TTR World Snowboard Hapfpipe Tour Champion title under his belt before returning to the Vans Wängl Tängl to prove beyond doubt his snowboard skill are far greater than between two walls.
Joining him in Team Off the Wall, is the 2012 TTR Big Air Vice Champion, American Eric Willet, having US Open, Ante Up, Dew Tour Titles plus Gold at Europe X-Games and Silver at X-Games US under his belt not to mention 2nd placing at the O'Neill Evolution just after the new New Year. Eric has exploded on to the snowboard landscape over the past two season, considered by peers to be hands down one of the standouts world wide in the slopestyle format. You want it flat, corked, inverted or reversed, Eric has it all combined with a pop, stomp and style that makes the impossible look not only probable, but logical to boot. Show him a rail, and he will rail back - he simply kills every bump, hump or grind-able feature on the hill - a style which will thrust him into M.V.P territory, and is perfectly suited to the design of the multi-line Vans Penken Park set up.
Finishing up the team is one of Europe's most under rated rider, hailing from Les Deux Alps, France, a gentleman and a scholar, Sir Arthur Longo. Former winner of The Arctic Challenge Quarter Pipe, Pirate Movie Productions main protagonist and all round good guy, Arthur quietly treads where brave men dare not go. No stranger to Austria this season, Arthur spent a month on location in the Valley during filming with PMP during one of the biggest dumps and best conditions seen in Austria for over 20 years (Show du Longo - Click here). An all round rider, his pipe skills all but guarantee to see him destroy the all new design of the Red Bull End Section. Arthur is the quiet killer type, a man of few words and consummate style - he could see as a modern day D'Artagnan...
A team that has it all, and has nothing to prove... they are sure to turn heads and toast a jar of fermented kick arse all over the course...
