Freeride World Tour Champions 2013
Ski Men: Drew Tabke USA
"The battle for the overall title kept the fans on suspense till the very last rider out of the gate, Reine Barkered (SWE). The solid Swede and 2012 Champion took second with an outstanding run on the “Bec” but it was not enough to hold on to the title. Drew Tabke (USA), finishing an exceptional season with a sixth place at Verbier, was crowned the new Freeride World Tour Champion.
Tabke, a veteran in freeride competitions, won the season’s first competition in Revelstoke (CAN) and never let go of the top spot on the overall standings. Tabke’s style of riding could be described as a benchmark for the 2013 season; a very talented skier, capable of mixing freestyle tricks and big mountain skills on the same run, with solid, hard charging and still very fluid skiing."
