Two legendary Wild Card riders and a new official partner are announced for the freeride world tour (FWT) Hakuba event
Snowboarding icons Tadashi Fuse (JPN) and Gigi Rüf (AUT) are to compete in Japan with Favre-Leuba as the official watch sponsor for the upcoming competition
Japanese snowboarding legend Tadashi Fuse has been a staple of the local scene for more than twenty years and has managed to breakthrough to an international fan base with his powerful riding style that has been featured in memorable snowboard films over two decades (including films by Mack Dawg Productions). He will ride alongside none other than Gigi Rüf, a man whose riding laid the foundation for the sport we know today though his incredible film segments with Absinthe and Kingpin productions featuring his cutting-edge riding with the original Burton and Volcom crews.
In addition to these exciting wild card riders, the FWT is also proud to announce a new partnership with Favre-Leuba as the Official Watch of Freeride World Tour Hakuba:
“Competing on the most legendary and challenging alpine faces without gates, boundaries and no instructions, the riders have to read the mountains, considering every detail like weather and snow conditions, making their own decisions how to conquer the mountain. Favre-Leuba understands this spirit and supports the riders in Hakuba as Official Watch partner.”
-Luca Orduña, Managing Director Favre-Leuba Japan
“Freeride World Tour (FWT) is very excited to partner with Favre-Leuba as the Official Watch of « Freeride Hakuba » - Opening event of the Freeride World Tour 2018. Favre-Leuba and Freeride World Tour have a common passion for the outdoor, and this partnership will nurture the freeride development in Japan, a high priority for FWT.”
-Nicolas Hale-Woods, CEO Freeride World Tour
With these exciting developments, freeride athletes and fans are looking forward to the kick-off of the 2018 season featuring a world-class roster of talented athletes riding amongst the fabled snowy summits of Japan.
