The Freeride World Qualifier in Arc 1950

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.

The Freeride Junior Tour 3* will take place on 14th January and will bring together a hundred or so young riders from all over the world, before giving way to the adults on 16th and 18th January for the Qualifier 2* events and on 29th January for the Qualifier 4* event.

Acrobatic jumps, elegance and commitment will punctuate these rounds in order to obtain as many points as possible to qualify for the Freeride World Tour.

The one and only 4 * French stage of the Freeride World Qualifier took place in Les Arcs. This is a competition that allows Freeriders to score a lot of points to qualify, so it is one of the most difficult events to take up!

And to win this event, who better than a local freerider? This is the feat that Hugo Hoff has achieved! Coming from the Freeski Academy of Les Arcs, this young freerider knew how to impose himself despite the tough competition and the snowfall! Find the France Infos report here!
