It’s ON! It’s finals day for Travis Rice’s Natural Selection Tour at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, and if Day 1 was anything to go by it’s gonna be an absolute doozy. We’re livestreaming all the action via Red Bull TV, with Whitelines exclusive rider interviews and chairlift chats over on our Instagram page.
“Natural Selection mixes elements of explosive backcountry freestyle, buttery smooth powder turns and balls to the wall steep freeriding”
The qualifiers saw some heavy hitters eliminated, including the current Freeride World Tour champion, Nils Mindnich, Olympic Gold Medallist Jamie Anderson, and backcountry legend Eric Jackson. We’ve got some Goliath vs Goliath match ups, with the big man Travis Rice taking on Mark McMorris, Sage Kotsenburg vs Ben Ferguson, and Elena Hight squaring up to Marion Haerty. It really is anyone’s game at this point.
