Freeride World Tour Chamonix

Freeride World Tour Chamonix

Insert: 09.02.2013
Mont Blanc created a dramatic background to the competition at La Flégère ski area on the Aiguille Pourrie face. Riders were treated to perfect weather with a cloudless sky. As this stop marks the halfway point of the 2013 Freeride World Tour season the pressure was on for riders to perform their best in pursuit of the first ever true world champion title.

Topping the men's skiing field with a dynamite run was  Drew Tabke of Crystal Mountain, Washington, USA with a score of 91.67. Tabke charged out of the starting gate and straight down the fall line. He maintained incredible speed as he launched off a huge cliff at the end of the technical section of the venue. Tabke sealed his win with a huge crowd-pleasing 360 rotation at the end of his run. Tabke also took the title at the Revelstoke competition earlier this season and is the current leader of the men's division.

The men's snowboard competition kicked off the day with Chamonix, France local  Jonathan Charlet taking the win with a score of 90.33. Charlet had a fluid run starting with two nice features at the top and concluding with a gigantic air at the bottom of the venue. He added a final element of style to the end of his run with a 360 rotation

After a few weeks off, the women were well rested and ready to for the day's competition. The 2012 Overall Freeride World Tour Women's Ski Champion  Christine Hargin of Ramundberget, Sweden has managed back-to-back wins after taking another win today. Hargin already holds the Revelstoke title as well. She skied a very fast run with a nice air at the top. She consistently demonstrated her athleticism and power throughout her run as she cruised down the looker's left side of the venue. Hargin is joined on the women's podium by  Nadine Wallner of Arlberg Austria who scored 72.33 and  Pia Nic Gundersen of Anstadblaheia, Norway with a score of 70.67.
Laura Dewey had a string of bad travel luck upon arriving in Chamonix less than 24-hours before the competition due to a delayed flight. Nonetheless, she managed to take the women's snowboard title even though she was riding on borrowed gear due to lost luggage. Dewey had a very solid and clean run, which linked many features together throughout the venue. Her run earned a winning score of 70.00. Margot Rozies of Pyrenees, France scored 69.00 for a second place finish. And finally,  Aline Bock from Germany, executed a smooth run which was rewarded with a 57.33 score for the third place finish.
