to top

After a very confident run with an unfortunate fall in the first stop of the Freeride World Tour, Cartel rider Christoffer Granbom was brimming with confidence for the second leg. Re-staged in Vallnord, because of dangerous snow conditions earlier in the season, Christoffer took home the top spot on the 2nd stop.
On his rookie season, representing Amplid and riding the Freeride World Tour for the first time, Swedish big-mountain rider, Christoffer Granbom has already scored a podium. Despite thin cover and difficult snow conditions Christoffer took home 2nd place in Andorra.
As a sponsor of the event, the team at Amplid would like to wish all the competitors at this year's Val D'Aran Freeride Contest in Baqueira Beret the best of luck. May your lines be smooth and your landings soft!
Due to poor snow conditions the fourth stop of the Freeride World Tour was moved to Snowbird in Utah. For team rider John Rodosky, competing in a resort in his adopted College town gives him familiarity with the contest face that other riders just don't have.
Large snowstorms have been creating some pretty scetchy snow conditions in Utah, the adopted home of the fourth stop on this year's Freeride World Tour. For the moment, Amplid Cartel rider John Rodosky will just have to hold tight.
