O’Neill Freeride Quest by Nissan – Flaine

The second qualification event of the Nissan Sports Adventure Freeride Tour will take place in Flaine on Thursday March 15th. 54 riders amongst which great names of the freeride scene will meet in the French resort of the Grand-Massif. Only 14 of them will qualify for the Verbier Xtreme.

As of Wednesday Flaine will welcome 54 riders, half of them coming from the first qualification in Austria, the other half being made up by pro riders having for most of them already participated in the Verbier Xtreme. The French skier Manu Gaidet, triple freeride world champion, will tackle the Swedish Sverre Liliequist, or the Swiss Phil Meier. In the snowboarders category, the two French riders Fred Moras, and Fred Serin, as well as the American Matthew Annets, all long-time confirmed riders, will try to win their seat against the talented rookies.

On Thursday they’ll climb up the Aiguille d’Aujon and try to get their ticket for the final of the Nissan Sports Adventure Freeride Tour: the Verbier Xtreme. Serge Cornillat, local coordinator of the event : “We wanted to assure the most spectacular show and we have found a face that will allow the riders to choose very various lines.” The public will be able to watch the freeride contest by going to the top of the Aujon ski-lift.
