At this point, the fact that Candide Thovex is not of this world needs no more discussion. His skiing supersedes hyperbole and his imagination is from another dimension. He's skiing's King Midas, and we're all lucky to be alive in an era of social media where he can broadcast his exploits instantaneously to the masses at any given second.
That's all well and good, but while watching the latest clip Thovex dropped Tuesday on Facebook–which he coyly titled "Warming Up"–the staff here at TGR was overcome with one pressing question: Who the hell is running his follow cam?
Beyond the fact that the unnamed follow cam operator is keeping up with Thovex–who is absolutely hauling ass in the clip, often times over tracked out snow–said follow cam operator is sending it off a series of alley-oops and step downs just behind the Flying Frenchman without ever missing a shot.
So props to you, follow cam operator, whoever you are. Because of your dedication we are all able to enjoy the magic of Candide skiing.
