Hats off to Ralph Backstrom for his win on Mac Face at the 2012 Freeride World Tour, Revelstoke. The first Freeride World Tour Snowboarding comp. ever held at Revelstoke! Watch his run above @(3:30). Huge props to Ralph for this accomplishment!
Backstrom: “A very special win for me indeed, and I’m extremely fired up!”
Ralph earned the highest score of the day, with a 92.67 out of a possible 100 points. On the notoriously challenging “Mac Face,” Backstrom was aggressive from the outset, starting with a very technical entrance and finishing with a solid double cliff drop. Backstrom said: I stayed on my feet, I went really fast, pretty fluid, I kind of white-roomed myself once or twice. My line had some nice features. I am really stoked – we had really good snow.”
