The 6th edition of the Lausanne Slopestyle was a great success! This year again, the downhill community came from all around the world to ride the exclusive summer snowpark built by the Lausanne freeboard crew, LAU’ Riders.  

 

Over the years, the Lausanne Slopestyle has become the reference event for the freeboard community and for many other downhill riders. The big family reunion took place in Lausanne, Switzerland, Olympic capital but also urban downhill Mecca.

 

The principle of the event: transform a 700m closed road into a downhill skatepark featuring similar modules as in winter snowparks (rails, kickers, hip…). With over 20 features on the track, the event reached a new dimension this year and riders came from all around the world to push the downhill freestyle limits.

“It’s the place to show everything you can do” mentioned Jonathan Deloumeaux from Freebord Caribbean.

 

Primarily designed by freeboarders for freeboarders, the event is open to any rider of any downhill discipline. For this 6th edition, around 80% of the riders were part of the freeboard community.

“If you are a freeboard rider, you should come here at least once!” mentioned Yuhei Fuda who made it all the way from Japan to get a piece of the ultimate downhill freestyle experience.

 

Thanks to the support of local authorities and Freebord MFG – the American leading brand in the freeboard industry – the event was a great success. Event organization was performed by the LAU’ Riders, Lausanne’s official freeboard crew and supported by historical partners Freebord.ch and Anticonf. We’d like to thanks all of them. They made it possible once again!
