[As you may have gathered from his X Games Real Snow-winning edit from last year, Frank Bourgeois is a bit of a beast.]
Sessions has just announced the addition of Quebec’s Frank Bourgeois to the global team – and having spent a few days ripping round Flachau with him shortly before Christmas, we can only say “Good job, Sessions!”
When you’re riding with a crew that includes Halldor and Eiki Helgason, Ethan Morgan, Tyler Chorlton and Sparrow Knox it’s hard to stand out. But that’s exactly what Frank ‘The Tank’ Bourgeois did at the Lobster (his board sponsor) team week. His switch straightlining of a steep, bumpy piste had us questioning his sanity, and then he proceeded to destroy the resort’s powder despite being best known for his intense urban riding.
This native of Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, blew minds back in early 2017 with this ultra-heavy edit that he submitted to the X Games Real Snow contest. And not only that, he went on to win the whole damn thing. Sessions are understandably pumped to have netted his sizeable testes.
With the Sessions hookup complementing existing sponsors Lobster Snowboards, Now Bindings and S3brdshp Frank’s now all about snagging the last few shots for his entry into the 2018 X-Games Real Snow once more, which again is filmed by French-Candadian film crew the Brothers Factory. Having seen the shots he stacked pre-Christmas we can only say you should keep your eyes out for this as it’s going to be BONKERS.
For the rest of this season, Frank will continuing to film with the Brothers Factory crew, Lobster Snowboards and will be featured in a couple instalments of Sessions’ “Sessions Sessions” team projects – these are going to be team-based trips focused on street riding and progression and sent out to the internet as hard as Frank sends it off urban step-downs into car parks.
Frank joins the existing riders of Jesse Paul, Ryan Paul and Nick Geisen on the Sessions team.
