PRESS RELEASE: Swatch Rocket Air

Tomorrow kicks off the tenth annual Swatch Rocket Air. Spectators at the Thun ice rink can anticipate a gift in the form of the Team Battle and for the first time, the best trick contest on Friday evening. What they can't predict: will a Swiss stand atop the podium for the first time in Swatch Rocket Air history?

Some final touches

The construction work for the 10th Swatch Rocket Air in the ice rink Thun is largely complete and the first riders are already testing the Birthday Bash course. Tickets for the 10th-anniversary edition and for the after party on Friday and Saturday are still available.
