Freeride World Tour in Hakuba coming up!

By Arjen on 17 January 2019 · 0

With the FWT Hakuba Japan stop just a couple of days away, the athletes are starting to flock in the city and getting their first taste of the Japow. A lot has happened in the past month in the athlete field and to our huge disappointment, a few athletes on the current line-up won't be able to make it to Hakuba and for some, for the whole season. Let us give you the run-down.

For medical reasons, the following athletes are out for the season:

  • Ivan Malakhov (RUS) - Ski Men
  • Hank Bilous (NZL) - Ski Men
  • Konstantin Ottner (GER) - Ski Men
  • Sam Lee (NZL) - Ski Men

Due to an injury, the following athletes will not make it for Hakuba, but are hoping to be back as of Kicking Horse, Golden BC stop:

  • Rachel Croft (USA) - Ski Women
  • Leo Slemett (FRA) - Ski Men
  • Wadeck Gorak (FRA) - Ski Men

The show is coming up in Hakuba this January 19-26. Follow all the action on our website and Freeride World Tour channels. These are last year's highlights!
