THE FREERIDE WORLD QUALIFIER IN ARC 1950

From January 25th to 31st

 

 

The Freeride World Qualifier consists of 50 or so competitions organised worldwide and bringing together the world’s top freeriders. Each event is classified from 1* to 4*: the more stars a race has, the more points the winners get. The riders with the highest number of points during the Qualifier events go through to the Freeride World Tour.

During the French Freeride World Qualifier event organised by Evolution 2, Arc 1950 Le Village will host freeriders from the world over who will compete in the best spots that Les Arcs has to offer. They will be using the Village as their HQ.

Saturday, January 18th: Freeride Junior 3*

 

 

100 competitors aged 14 to 18 start on Saturday morning at the top of the side chosen for the Freeride Junior Tour 3 *. Beautiful curves, jumps and figures with commitment, control, fluidity and caution were taken into account by the judges who give a note to each rider.

The objective: to score points on each winter event and why not climb onto the Arc 1950 podium where the awards ceremony take place at 5 p.m. The village hosts all the highlights of the events.
