Verbier (SUI) - March 23rd, 2019
Three world titles were up for grabs today in Verbier with the familiar combination of nerves and excitement, which are always present on this legendary venue and the world’s best did not disappoint. Under sunny skies the competitors provided a Grand Finale and certainly left us wanting more for FWT20. Marion Haerty (FRA- 1st Place) put down the run of her life including a massive 360 and a technical double drop to add a record fourth win to the season. With the 2019 FWT Title already secured she came here hungry to take home the Verbier crown. Arianna Tricomi (ITA- 2nd Place) claimed her second consecutive FWT World Title with an exciting second place run on the Bec. Taking a different approach on the face she linked together some technical features with smooth, stylish skiing.
Victor De Le Rue (FRA- 3rd Place) claimed his maiden FWT victory in his rookie year. Following in the footsteps of his older brother, Xavier, Victor impressed the judges with a mix of big airs and fluid snowboarding including a massive 360. Markus Eder (ITA- 6th Place) took home the 2019 FWT Title in his category, with style, opening up a new creative line with a 360 and huge backflip.
