Freeride World Tour: Arianna Tricomi still on the podium in Andorra flying towards the world title

Freeride World Tour: Arianna Tricomi ancora sul podio in Andorra in volo verso il titolo mondiale
Today was held in Ordino Arcalís - Andorra - the penultimate race of the Tour. After the postponement of the last weekend due to conditions deemed not safe enough for the stage, the race committee today gave the go-ahead. Snow a bit hard but good visibility notwithstanding the overcast sky.
Arianna Tricomi takes home important points by placing herself on the second step of the podium between the two USA countrymen Jackie Paaso (first) and Jacqueline Pollard (third). Arianna has been in the past few years the first to bring a bit of freestyle even in the female category and now the 360 ° is its trademark. In today's line Arianna manages to set two well losing some points on the control but still ensuring a good score. Thus consolidates its first position in the general standings, but the games are not closed yet. In fact, Jacqueline Pollard follows closely. Everything will be played for once again at the Verbier final at the end of the month. In addition to them they pass the turn Jackie Paaso, Hedvig Wessel and Hazel Birnbaum. WATCH THE REPLAY OF THE COMPETITION To our Markus Eder would have been enough today to rank within the first 6 positions to make sure the points in the world title, but it is certainly not the type to look for a quiet descent. At the first cliff he attempted a scary backflip but unfortunately he went wrong and crashed. Not classified today. The first place goes to the French Léo Slemett, with a wonderful descent, followed by Kristofer Turdell and then Andrew Pollard both with fast and very technical lines. In general the level was really high and the show level. They pass the turn and take the classification in the Tour of next year only 11 of the skiers competing to date: Carl Regnér, Tom Peiffer, Aymar Navarro, Kristofer Turdell, Léo Slemett, Andrew Pollard, Markus Eder, Tanner Hall, Drew Tabke, Mickael Bimboes and Wadeck Gorak. In the men's snowboard today is ranked first Blake Hamm (USA), followed by the French Victor de Le Rue and then to follow Davey Baird (USA). In snowboarding the Americans are really going strong with 5 stars and stripes athletes out of a total of 10. The final will be Jonathan Penfield, Victor de Le Rue, Blake Hamm, Davey Baird and Sammy Luebke. For women's snowboarding today, the highest step on the podium is won by the French Marion Haerty, and in addition to her gaining access to the Verbier final and next year's Tour are Anna Orlova, Manuela Mandl and Erika Vikander. Appointment now in Verbier for the Xtreme, the most extreme race of the whole Tour where the champions of the Freeride world will be crowned.
