The Freeride World Tour's stop at Vallnord-Arcalís in Andorra finally went down on Tuesday after a few days of being put on hold due to conditions. It appears those down days had the competitors chomping at the bit to get on the mountain, because Drew Tabke just ripped off one of the gnarliest FWT runs we've ever seen.
Tabke's hairy-as-hell chute entrance through a vicious scree field is enough to make your jaw hit the floor. The ultra laid-out backflip is just the icing on the cake, and ultimately won Tabke the Radical Moment of the Vallnord stop.
Somehow, Tabke didn't grab the overall title for the stop, with Kristofer Terdell taking the crown for the men's ski division, while Sammy Leubke took the men's snowboard title, Manuela Mandl took the women's snowboard title and Arianna Tricomi claimed the women's ski title.
Personally, I don't understand how the judges didn't immediately halt the competition, and crown Tabke the Grand Overlord Supreme of the Freeride World Tour and the entire sport of skiing, but then again I'm not well-versed in the scientific manner in which a FWT judge determines a score.
