Riders in this news : ; ; ; Thomas GERIN
In order to prepare a future photo shoot for our Rooster TV, french speaking dudes from the Euro team gathered in Val Cenis Vanoise for 4 days of spots scouting.
During those days, we have checked a lot of different spots with the help of the locals, had good laugh during the party and even got to spend a night at l’Arolle, the altitude restaurant (thanks Gringo) during which we played a crazy Pictionnary game.
With over a meter of fresh pow, our legs were soar from the unlimited forest ride and our faces from the smiles we had all day long.
Thanks to Damien and Serbe (snowcat driver and snowpark manager) for their guidance. Thanks to the resort for the hospitality, and see you soon in March…
Riders in this news : ; Xavier DE LE RUE
2008 World Champion title, Xavier took the 2nd place and shows all his rivals he is ready to tear everything to win a second title. He burnt the spot with the most aggressive lines of comp, on the first day he took a line with two cliffs in the row in the steepest part and linked it with a wall ride on some granite part in the lower section. Modern free riding like we enjoy it.
Jonas took a nice 7th place, with a second place during the second day with a ride super fluid and fast.
Next Freeride World Tour stop in Squaw Valley (USA), from 27 February to 5 March 2009.
Before that second stop, Xavier DE LE RUE will get on the bus of the Big Mountain Pro, a mobile freeride event in Europe, and Jonas EMERY will be mixing tricks and freeride during the Oxbow Back to Powder in Arêche Beaufort (France).

A crazy week with crazy guys in the Pyrenees... (2nd part)
"I just wanted to complete the report of our previous narrator Brynild Vulin, who I think is to modest: It might seems trivial to you, but I would make sure you take note that after our Gavarnie circus ascent, two wild beasts have made our pursuit!
Sylvain Grézy on a clif (saved), Brynild on another but still up by one of the monsters, and myself already half-swallowed by the other... This was without counting on a super hero who was passing by, Manuel and his blue slip arrived to make sure both beasts would die by laughing too much... Victory!
A small sauna to warm up and everything was in order. I know, it’s hard to believe, the pictures can prove it!
Thanks to: Papou for lodging, friends that drove down to the Pyrenees, Seb, Wedza and private message to the woman ski patrol ... I will find you!"
