A total of seven riders will travel to Europe to represent their country trying to tie on to the good results of the previous three major events.

The team is led by 2014 Olympic Halfpipe Silver medallist Torah Bright as well as 2011 Halfpipe World Champions Holly Crawford and Nathan Johnstone.

All three athletes have earned a total of five World Championships medals so far. While Johnstone took home the title glory four years ago, Bright claimed slopestyle Bronze back in 2013.

Crawford in contrary calls a full set of medals her own with Silver in 2013, Gold in 2011 and Bronze back in 2009.

Besides those three veterans, 2014 Halfpipe World Cup title winner Scotty James is also a podium contender going into his third World Championships.

The team is completed by halfpipe riders Kent Callister and Emily Arthur as well as slopestyle athlete Michaela Davis-Meehan.
