WATCH: Xavier de Le Rue Talks Competition Riding on The Bec

One of the baddest humans on the planet takes us through his thought process as he takes the most notorious face in the Alps….

“Every time I see the Bec des Rosses, near or far, I ask myself, ‘Oh God, do we really go down there?” sates Xavier de Le Rue.

With just days to go before the contest begins, things are looking extremely scary on the Bec des Rosses, the notoriously treacherous mountain that is the home of the most dangerous contest in snowboarding – the Swatch Xtreme Verbier.

Using a camera mounted on a drone, Xavier is able to get a birds-eye view of the mountain he’ll soon be riding down, and what he sees is far from reassuring: the entire face has been ‘scraped’ by wind, removing the powder snow, and leaving it highly exposed to the countless rocks that litter the face.”
