behind the scenes on tour

Decide to Ride Ep. 1 | Road to FWT

By: Ethan Stone January 26, 2023

Valle Rainer and Max Hitzig are two barnstorming young Austrian freeriders who are intent on making their mark on the international contest scene. As they embark on their first season together on the Freeride World Tour, the two decided to team up on a new webisode series called “Decide to Ride.”

Episode 1 is called “Road to FWT,” and shows the path that brought Valle and Max to the top echelon of competitive freeride. Namely, that’s plenty of stompage in freeride contests across the Alps, including Max’s surprise win at last year’s FWT stop in Fieberbrunn as a last-minute wildcard.

These two homies, as well as filmer Flo Gassner, bring plenty of energy and humor to the scene, and we’re stoked to see how this webisode series develops throughout the season.
