BlackRiver USA Tour!

Blackriver Goes USA...
World premiere: 1. Fingerboard Team on US Tour!!

The US Fingerboard scene can look forward to the first Blackriver fingerboard US tour. It took a while, but also Rome wasn't built in a day ;-)

On our US tour we also visit the 6th Fingerboard Rendezvous hosted by our team rider Mike Schneider and his family in Andover, MA on the 18th April. Fingerboard Rendezvous became the biggest and most popular event for the US fingerboard scene.

Thanks a bunch to Mike and his family for their engagement and their great work.
