UPDATE: Due to someone's scheduling glitch we managed to get this video before we were actually supposed to and have thus removed it. Fear not, you can watch This Is My Winter on the Swatch Timeline Missions site. We apologise on behalf of those responsible for the extra finger click.UPDATE UPDATE: The video's now back. Enjoy the madness.]
The official blurb is a little cryptic, so we will try our best to fill you in with the details of what is to be regarded one of the best freeride flicks of recent years. Xavier De Le Rue, Frenchman and gnarly big mountain rider, decided at the beginning of last season that it was about time for his own movie, showing what goes on behind and also above the scenes of filming for TB20and being a freeride badass. This is the result: Xavier De Le Rue’s This Is My Winter!
Ice or snow, Xavier de le Rue best sessions.
“At this time of the year last season, with my friends Guido, Tero and Matthieu we’ve decided to create our own movie production company called TimeLine Film.
With the support of my partners we have released a web serie during the season. We’ve tried to document more than just the action and show people what it takes as effort, luck and commitment to get the best possible big mountain video part in TB20 from Standard Films. Although the snow conditions were terrible in Europe last winter we hoped all season long we could have enough unseen action and interesting backstage material to come up with a movie and have a chance to share our experience. Here it is, THIS IS MY WINTER !”
