“Are you ready for the FWT20!? The Freeride World Tour is back for another action packed season! 5 stops across 3 continents, all culminating on the legendary face of the Bec des Rosses for 25th anniversary of the Verbier Xtreme.”
The FWT will not be making a stop stateside but North America is on the list (Kicking Horse, B.C.) Stoked for the season to kick off mid-January in Hakuba, Japan. Let’s hope Travis Rice makes another guest appearance and steals the show!
HERE’S THE FULL RUNDOWN OF VENUES & COMPETITION WINDOWS:
From the 18th – 25th January the winter begins in Hakuba, Japan! The deep conditions and exciting terrain will give the riders the best possible start to the competition season. Next up, it’s time to get rowdy at Kicking Horse, Canada from the 6th – 12th February. The playful terrain packed full of natural features is ideal for riders looking to get creative by including freestyle elements in their lines! In a slight change from the FWT19, the third stop on the FWT20 will be Ordino Arcalis, Andorra from 28th February – 4th March. The unpredictable and, sometimes, tricky conditions means that the riders will have to be able to adapt quickly to be able to hold the line in preparation for the all important fourth stop… It’s crunch time in Fieberbrunn, Austria from the 7th – 13th March. Who will be committed enough to conquer the Austrian Alps and come out on top of the cut ready for the season finale?
The grand finale! For the 25th year the top riders of the FWT will stand on top of the summit of the incredibly steep Bec des Rosses with it all on the line for the title of FWT Champion.
Each and every one of these venues is easily accessible to freeride fans and spectators. So, come join in the action and support your favorite riders as they throw down!
