After an epic start to the 2019 Freeride World Tour (FWT) in Hakuba, Japan, the world’s best are making their way across the Pacific to North America for the second competition of the season at the legendary resort of the Canadian Rockies, Kicking Horse in Golden, B.C., which kicks off this coming weekend.

Solid performances in every category by an insane line-up of riders set the stage for a mind blowing season opener in Hakuba. Podium finishers like Markus Eder, Tanner Hall, Gigi Rüf, Arianna Tricomi and Anna Orlova will be looking to carry their momentum into Kicking Horse and earn more crucial points in the world title race. However, they will surely be challenged by the strong line-up of riders hoping for better results in B.C., including local favourites and event wildcards Nicole Kelly and Logan Pehota.

Stay tuned to and the Freeride Wold Tour’s social media channels for competition updates and rider news as the weekend approaches.
