With the first three QParks Tour Stops leading the way of the Tour around the Alpine area, we can't wait for the 4th QParks Tour Stop and the Blue Tomato Plan P on the 28th of January 2017. What riders have to look forward to is a super sophisticated slopestyle course, plenty of airtime and even more creative jib elements. Ready or not, the Blue Tomato Plan P will transform Austria's Superpark Planai into a shred area!
