Revelstoke, BC (January 5, 2023) — The Natural Selection Tour rolls out an absolutely stacked group of 24 riders from Olympians to icons and riders quickly making their names in the mountains, who will compete this season. Rounding out the 2023 invited riders are: two-time Olympic gold medalist Enni Rukajarvi, Austrian park to powder vet Werni Stock, Canadian up-and-comers Darrah Reid-McLean and Mikey Ciccarelli, Norway’s Ulrik Badertscher, who landed the world’s first 1620 and “Big Mountain” Marissa Krawczak from Oregon. All 16 men and 8 women competing will start off in Natural Selection DUELS, designed to bring out riders’ creativity and highlight new zones and snowboarding’s diverse styles.
The 2023 Natural Selection Tour season kicks off in January 2023 at rider-selected freeriding venues around the world. DUELS will showcase varied terrain, as the riders pre-qualified from the 2022 season will go head-to-head with the invited riders from across the global snowboarding spectrum. The fully edited and judge-scored runs from each DUEL will be broadcast first and exclusively on Red Bull TV throughout February 2023.
