After an early leaving from Tignes, we finally arrived in Val Thorens for the Boarderweek contest with the whole Young Gun team, Julien Lange, Flo Bastien and Kevin Guri, a new CoreUPT.com rider.
Training started at 9am on a sick slopestyle (double wave rail, box flat down, rail, 18m kick, gap rail, step up to step down, down flat down and a hip).
After 3 runs of training, we started the 1st qualifier run with 80 riders in competition and most of them were wellknown french riders.
Only the best 20 riders are qualified for the 2nd run. 4 CoreUPT.com riders are still in competition : Ju, Flo, Kev and Tom Lesuire.
At the end of the second run, Ju is 1st , Kev is 2nd and Flo is 5th.
At the end of the day, it’s finally Flo who won the contest and the 5000 euros prize money. He did a perfect run with a cab mute 1080. Kevin is 3rd and Julien took the 4th place.
Big Up to the CoreUPT.com team !
