After four years getting the first place, my brother-in-arms ended second during the fifth opus of Urban Plagne. This year, the video contest based on street skiing and snowboarding took a cinematic turn, bringing more importance to the scenario in the competition. We are not going to start talking about judging or how legitimate the ranking is, neither start moaning and groaning about it. There’s no point.
The facts are : twelve spots rode in four days, street riding “Gpsy Feelin way” and a philosophic and poetic movie about chance.
I invite you to take ten minutes and watch it here
This winter was the last opus of a saga that last for five years in Les Arcs.
The L.A. Session offered its last show in Les Arcs 1800 in front of a delighted crowd watching young stuntmen riding the usual perfect jump. Screaming louder after each back flip.
The list of stuntmen was a heavy one for this very last L.A. More than the french star system riders like Julien and Théo Lange, Flo Bastien, P-A Chedal, Lolo Favre and co, we had special guests Phil Casabon and Henrik Harlaut (who won btw!)
Long story short, some great riders at the start gate and a nice group of friends were there to celebrate the final act.
But do not doubt that Romain Grojean didn’t let the L.A. Session down without a little surprise in his mind for next season.
