To anyone with even a passing interest in winter sports, French skier Candide Thovex should need little introduction. Having helped pioneer modern freestyle skiing in its earliest days, he went on to win pretty much every contest worthy of the name including three X Games.
He then went on to own the world of freeriding, winning the Freeride World Tour title in his debut year.
“What does the crazy Frenchman have in store for us this time?”
Perhaps even more famously, he then starred in two of the biggest viral skiing videos on the web. One of These Days, shot in 2013 got more than three million views which is impressive enough in itself.
