“When Travis Rice sends you a private invite to ride, you accept it.”
I’ve been hearing things and seen bite-sized clips around the web of this new series of competitions that Travis is calling The Natural Selection, but this is by far the most comprehensive coverage to date. These venues and the format are literally years in the making and with Travis at the helm we can rest assured it will deliver heavy in 2021:
“On January 27, Travis Rice invited a dozen of the best male and female snowboarders in the world to “The Natural Selection” test event, a VIP backcountry soiree in a custom-built terrain environment designed by the legend himself. When Travis Rice sends you a private invite to ride, you accept it.
Rice has been working the last few years to create this course, stretched over an entire mountain face, that he wants to be the most rideable natural run the world has ever seen. Finally, on a bluebird Monday at Jackson Hole, the world got to see a piece of what Rice and The Natural Selection crew have been secretly working on.
In the future, Rice hopes “The Natural Selection” Tour becomes a three-part event series stretching across Wyoming, British Columbia and Alaska to crown the best all-mountain freestyle snowboarder in the world. This powder day in Jackson Hole was the first step toward that dream.”
” The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.” -Travis Rice
