Winning Run Reine Barkered. Swatch Freeride World Tour 2017: Xtreme Verbier
A three-way tie for the world title was finally broken by Léo Slemett’s (FRA) spectacular run which began with a committing 360 in the exposed upper part of the venue and was followed by a series of high amplitude airs, earning him the much deserved world title. Yet it was Reine Barkered (SWE) who hammered a stunningly fast line through most of the biggest features of the face with his renowned control and veteran mastery that took today’s top performance in ski men.
