So i just finished up at the Freeride World Tour over in Chamonix. It was my vist time covering a stop of this tour and i wasn’t quite sure what to expect. With my winter season slow to kick off after the cancellation of Red Bull Linecatcher it was time for the rolls to be reversed as i sat inside all Saturday due to too much snow in Chamonix. When the snow cleared and the light came out it was time for the event to go ahead. Probably the best part of the day was getting up the Brevent gondola (that i’ve previously ran up) whilst still dark and intime for an amazing moody sunrise around the Mont Blanc area.

With the competition done and dusted the whole operation upped and moved to neighbouring Italian resort Courmayeur as night moved in. After securing some work for the Italian stop, i’ve made the move over with them and look forward to another couple of days of freeriding before i move in the Germany direction for ISPO this weekend. Busy week travelling for sure!

Here’s that dramatic sunrise, and equally a dramatic of line taken from yesterday.
