After a slopestyle in Val-Thorens and a half-pipe in Tignes, l’Alpe d’Huez welcomed this week a Big Air for the SFR Tour.
The finals set in the evening on the “Signal”. Eight boys was on the departure. They should make three runs and two different tricks. Ben Valentin, the skier of la Plagne and member of the team Rossignol, takes the third place of the race behind David Bonneville and the Japanese Antti Ollila who was in a very good shape.
The women were three on the top and should execute two runs. Emilie Cruz (Rossignol), third the last week during the pipe in Tignes, ends second and shows that she is also in the running for the big air.
The next stage will be in la Plagne for a superpipe. The best athletes will receive their wild-cards for the Winter X Games in Tignes.

The semi-finals of the Winter Dew Tour took place today in Snowbasin, Utah. An overcast day and warm temperatures weren’t ideal conditions but the riders and Snowbasin were out in force and ready for the competition.
Xavier Bertoni, Benoit Valentin and Joffrey Pollet Villard all entered the elimination round super motivated to compete in the last Dew Tour stop for the season. With two clean runs, Xavier and Joffrey both skied hard but were unable to break into the top ten against a tough field.
Ben Valentin (with broken fingers...) held on with two strong runs to take 6th place, which puts him in a great position for the finals tomorrow.
Go Ben !!!
