Remember the impressive Base Jump of Matthias Giraud last month in Megève, French Alps. He jumped a cliff what created an avalanche.
This week-end took place the Adrénaline Challenge in La Clusaz and on Lake Annecy (in French Alps). Eider was partner of this first edition which was a great success ! For two days, 32 of the best international riders were competing in 4 disciplines: Ski, Mountain Bike, Stand-up Paddle and Wake-Surf. It was a sportive challenge in a friendly atmosphere ! On Saturday, 23rd April 2011 the 8 teams were confronting one another on two different ski and mountain bike races. On the following Sunday, the teams got much fun paddling and surfing on the beautiful Lake Annecy.

The final stage of the Freeride World Tour took place on March, 19th and 20th in Verbier. The best freeriders competed on the mythical Bec des Rosses, whose peak reaches the 3222 meters. We got a French podium this year, with the winner Aurélien Ducroz, followed by Jérémy Prevost and Adrien Coirier. After a pretty impressive start at the FWT 2011 (2nd place in Chamonix and 6th place in Engadin) followed by a little slow down in the results, Adrien Coirier made a great performance at the end of the race and finally arrived 3rd this year.
The fifth edition of the Nendaz Freeride took place Saturday 12th March on the now legendary slope of the Mont-Gond. This 4 stars competition is part of the Freeride World Qualifier (men's category) and Freeride World Tour (women's category). Kévin Guri finished second of the competition.
