One year after the first idea, developed at Jackys restaurant Middle Station, 124 riders from all over the world gathered in Stuben powder heaven to tribute the roots of snowboarding. It was the very first LeMans Start in the Arlberg Aera and the beginning of a yearly highlight in the Arlberg event agenda. The price giving was held at Jackys Restaurant. We did not have a T-Shirt that year.
Red Bull and Alprausch believed in the idea and started supporting the LBC. MAHALO!
Our goals for the LBC were (and still are):
– no price money
– meet your friends from all over the world
– keep the spirit of snowboarding alive
– tribute to the LBC legends
by the way we are sorry for the bad photo quality… but: it was the year 2000!
