Xavier de Le Rue’s name got shouted loud and clear at the Fillmore auditorium in Denver on January 29th during the 11th Annual TransWorld SNOWboarding rider poll award when winner of the Stand out performance of the year got announced. The snowbard scene voice made it clear there were yet another Big Mountain Rider to watch out by awarding Xavier Standout Of The Year for hair-raising, big-mountain lines in Alaska.
“In the last few years I re discovered snowboarding”, stated Xavier de Le Rue “Getting the chance to film has been so cool and gave me the opportunity to share what’ I’ve been doing with other people. Being awarded for this is the best honour I could receive and it makes me want to do only better in the future. It feels great to get that recognition from the riders themselves. I’d like to give a big shout out to my sponsors and Standard films people who believed in me!”
Xavier had two amazing seasons which led him to cumulate not only competition titles: Back to Back Nissan Freeride World Tour world Champion, back to back overall (yes that means snowboard and ski) best line of the Nissan FWT presented by Swatch, Overall winner of Swatch O’neill Big Mountain Pro, but as well video segments in both Aesthetica and Black Winter from Standard Films and Relentless Lives of the Artist movie with the Greenland trip.
