FALL OF KEVIN ROLLAND: MORE FRIGHTENED THAN HURT

Riders in this news :   ; 

All the team arrived in Snowmass (Colorado). The weather are not perfect and pipe is still not at the top but nothing stops the riders of Rossignol Team.

Rosalind moves on the runs, Xavier, after a small injury in Snow Bassin during Dew Tour, saves himself. Between its quiet runs, he takes the time to go to the osteopath.

Regarding Kevin, with a lot of objectives in mind and motivated by his coach Greg Guenet, he tries to make a spectacular figure... Focus has to be 100 %. After a first try with a touching down on the back, he goes back up the half pipe and reattempts his jump. He does the figure but Kevin falls forwards and his head bumps into the ice...

"Skis patrol" is immediately called. At first sight, his nose took a good blow as well as his head...

Verdict: after a check-up at the hospital, Kevin has a cranial trauma (of no consequence), a pain in the shoulder and a broken nose...

Few days off before X-Games will be useful for Xavier and Kevin in order to be ready for the event but don't worry; Kevin gets better and recovers from his fall. So for sure, the two guys will offer to us a beautiful show during Winter X-Games in Aspen (Colorado).
