World Cup Slopestyle Font Romeu 2022: Recap, Results, Winning Runs

By: Ethan Stone January 16, 2022

On January 14-16, 2022 the World Cup slopestyle circuit returned to Font Romeu, France. At what’s typically one of the most challenging venues on the tour, Tess Ledeux brought home a big win for the host country, while Andri Ragettli staged a remarkable return to World Cup competition just eight months after knee surgery.

Men: the return of ragettli

Looking like he hadn’t missed a beat during his time off, Ragettli’s winning run included a switch left double 1260 mute, a massive left triple cork 1400 safety, and a right double cork 1260 double japan. In the rail section, he added a switch left 270 on to backside 630 out, before closing with k-feds (front swap, back 270 out) in both directions on the last two rail tiers—including one on the technical final rail transfer.

Heads up, everyone: Andri Ragettli is back, and he´s hungrier than ever.

In second place, New Zealander Ben Barclay picked up his first podium finish on the World Cup circuit. Barclay tossed a right double cork 1260 japan, switch left double cork 1620 mute and a left double cork 1080 mute in the jumps, followed by a frontside 630 out; switch left 270 on, blind swap, front 270 out; and and a switch right 270 on, pretzel 270 out in the rails.

Third place went to the stylish young Canadian rider Edouard Therriault. The always-smiling Therriault delivered a rightside double 1260 mute, switch left double bio 1260 truck, and a left double cork 1260 tail in the jumps. In the rails, he laced a switch on, front cork 450 safety out; a frontside 360 swap to continuing 270 out; and a switch right 270 on to switch.

Women: Vive la france

On the women’s side, local favorite Tess Ledeux carried the day with the help of three different 900s: a switch left 900 safety, left cork 900 tail, and switch right bio 900 safety. In the rails, she added a back 450 out of the cannon; a switch on, front 270 out on the DFD; and a switch right 270 on to switch.

After narrowly missing the podium here in 2020, American Marin Hamill claimed her first World Cup medal with a second-place finish. Hamill sent a left 540 mute, switch right 540 japan and a right 720 tail in the jumps, then kept it simple and stylish in the rails with a back 270 out, front 270 out and a classic switch on, switch out.

Third place went to Austria’s Lara Wolf, another newcomer to the World Cup podium. Wolf nearly got hung up in the final rail section on a transfer attempt, but still scored well based on her strong jump section, which featured a beauty of a left cork 720 blunt, a massive right cork 900, and a switch left misty 900 safety.
