The 2015 Freeride Junior Tour by Dakine started on the 24th January in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France. It’s the 5th season of the FJT and this year there are some significant changes which are only adding to the hype!
The most significant of these changes is the introduction of the athlete seeding list used by the Freeride Qualifying Tour for 8 years. This seeding list is a points system which dictates which athletes qualify for which competitions (rated from 1 to 3 stars).
Another change to the FJT is the discontinuation of the two age categories. In previous years the FJT have had two categories (14-16 / 16-17). This year there will be just one open Junior category to champion from ages 14-17 (inclusive).
