Kumi Yama !

Riders in this news :   ; 

In July Les 2 Alpes' Snowpark is turning into Japan! Yes, Kumi Yama is back and so are our two best riders ever; Kevin Rolland and Xavier Bertoni. From July 3rd to 5th riders will be smashing one the biggest superpipe ever, hitting the best trick contest and riding for a pretty sweet prize money (12000$) with exclusive Japanese and Worldwide ProRiders.

Let's make sure we understand how we want it to be, Kevin Rolland won FIS superpipe world cup in Inawashiro, Japan...something tells me that he wants Kumi Yama's to bring him back good memories.

Be there or be square!

Team Rossignol 2nd @ Urban Plagne

Riders in this news :   ; 

Few weeks ago the Rossignol's (dream) team took part in La Plagne's Winter Urban Plagne
A 3 days contest based on a long list of tricks and challenges to achieve. Remember Tony Hawk's Pro Skateboarding and its levels with sick (and stupid) tricks to land? Urban Plagne is pretty much similar but definitely more exhausting; every single trick has to be shot. Our camera Mathias Lopez man handled this part.

Exhausting? Maybe, but as usual Rossignol' riders rocked out and showed up with their skills even at the season's end. Kevin Rolland, Xavier Bertoni and Jonathan Bertoni ended up 2nd.

Check out the video right here.
