Riders in this news :  Xavier DE LE RUE

Xavier de Le Rue scored first place in Squaw Valley during the Freeride World. He ends up ranked first at the overall ranking before Xtreme Verbier, final of the tour.
"Although I was excited at the idea to challenge Tram Face which is a myth and fit my style of riding better, weather didn’t make it possible and it was a good surprise to shred Silverado again as the snow condition were great ! Regarding my run, I landed switch close to a rock and I had to do half cab right after but everything went fine. Today it was a great show. The new course format with best out of two runs counting for final ranking gave us the chance to go for it a bit stronger than usual. Still no one went crazy and took too much risks which is super good as well. It shows riders are real professional and that our sport is getting matured. Now I’m back home and filming for standard films as my priority, I will try to get as much lines as possible before the Xtreme Verbier and get fit for the Bec des Rosses!" Xavier

Xavier Jordan, snowboard head judge commented on Xavier’s run after the results were announced. « He did an amazing second run! Xavier went fast and without hesitation, he stomped a frontside 360° at the top then went for double cliff and ended up with a huge air on a cliff at the bottom, the whole run without any mistakes!
