Beijing, CHINA (December 22, 2008) – In a surprise move set to shake things up at the TTR 4-star 7th Red Bull Nanshan Open, last year’s winner Jakob Wilhelmson has just confirmed he will be returning to Beijing for the third year in a row. The Quiksilver rider posted a fifth place result at the 5th Red Bull Nanshan Open and first place at the 6th, making him one of the Open’s most successful riders. All eyes will be on this local crowd pleaser as he takes his distinctive riding style to the Quiksilver Nanshan Mellow Park this January 10th and 11th to compete for US$25,000 and precious TTR ranking points!
