Pully, Switzerland, Jan 23, 2023: The FWT season is finally kicking off, as athletes and FWT staff prepare to return to the Spanish Pyrenees for one of the hottest events of the season. The Baqueira Beret Pro will again play host, after last year’s amazing debut at this venue, with a weather window spanning from the 28th of January to the 2nd of February.

As the FWT title fight commences, the world’s best riders will return to impress the crowd with their skills. This year’s level is incredible, and athletes will need to push their limits to make it past the cut after the third event in Kicking Horse Golden BC, running between February 17th and 22nd.

Who will have what it takes to threaten the returning world champions Jess HotterMaxime Chabloz and Thipanie Perrottin for a shot at the crown? Will the home crowd spur on Aymar NavarroAbel Moga and the Event Wildcard Elisabet Marina to take the win? Or will the rookies step up and prove their place? We can’t wait to find out.

Plenty of snow has fallen in the Pyrenees in the last few days, and the conditions look amazing. It would be hard to find a better way to start FWT23.

We hope to see you there but, if you can’t make it, don’t forget that the competition will be live streamed at www.freerideworldtour.com. Stay tuned on all of our channels to get the latest updates, and don’t miss out on any action.

Freeride World Tour is finally here, folks!
