X-Games have become the most recognized extreme sports competition in the world.
Every year, the pro riders cream travels to Aspen (Colorado) to grab the first place on the so coveted podium.
Well, you have to know that when you are a pro rider, winning your X-Games invitation is mostly like receiving a Golden Ticket to the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Only the best elements of their discipline are granted the privilege of accessing structures created especially for them.
Slopestyle, Big Air, Superpipe, the X-Games are really the Mecca of freestylers.
Beyond the hundred skiers and snowboarders selected, it is a hundred thousand spectators who make the trip to the competition place, to attend the world’s biggest snow sports show. Impressive. But no more than the ten million viewers, who, from their couch, encourage their favorite athletes!
For our part, it is our 3 Picture Family members that we will fervently encourage! Teal Harle, Mathilde Gremaud and Antoine Adelisse had the pleasure of receiving their invitation for the prestigious event.
Even if they are young, (21, 17, 21 years old), our « protégés » are used to this kind of competitions. Teal just won a step on the World Cup, Mathilde won the X-Games, in Norway, in 2017 and Antoine has already participated to the X-Games.
It is very carefully that we will follow the results of our riders, hoping that they can finish on the podium they deserve so much!
PS : And our thoughts also go to Coline Ballet-Baz AKA Coco, who also received her invitation to the X-Games, but unfortunately, she will not be able to participate, because of an anterior cruciate ligament injury in her left knee…
We wish you a quick and good recovery, and we hope that you and your smile will come back soon on skis!
