Emilien Badoux was not a rider we knew much about until he exploded onto our screens with this balls out powder part about a month and a half ago. Featuring gnarly-looking drops, some quality head-cam footage and some frankly insane lines, it immediately made us sit up and take notice.
Arguably both Gigi Ruf and Nico Muller have put out more accomplished powder parts online this year (both from Nike’s Never Not) but the reason this one trumped them both for a place here was a) our surprise at this coming from a relatively unknown shredder, and b) the sheer speed with which he attacks everything here. That line down the Bec de Rosses is just insane!
