Each year for the past six years, Volcom hosts the Volcom Avalanche Chinese downhill race. It is short, crazy, and extremely entertaining to watch. Read on for more details on this classic race event that took place in the El Colorado resort:
On a tremendous sunny day the sixth version of the classic Volcom Avalanche was held. This year the number of entries exceeded more than 300 riders, which is a new record for this classic race in El Colorado ski resort.
With speeds reaching more than 100km/h, starting at the top of the mountain and finishing at Farellones, the clear winner for the second year running was the Frenchman Joel Certano. He won 1000 usd prize money. Antonia Yanez won the women’s category.
It was an epic day with a large audience and as always sponsored by Volcom, tatamotors, Adrenalin, El Colorado, Red Bull, Electric, Inside boardshop and Flux Bindings.
