Candide Thovex holds the title of one of the biggest stars in the freeski universe. As he himself has always said: “I let the ski speak for me”. Today we bring you a video starring this freeski virtuoso in which you can almost feel in first person an impressive descent. He recorded it near his home, in La Clusaz (Rhône-Alpes region) and it was a true viral phenomenon since, in just the first 24 hours of the video, more than two million people saw it. Take a look at the video and judge for yourself. We loved it.
Surely Candide won Big Air gold at the 2000 X Games at just 17 years old. Later, he took Halfpipe gold in 2003 and another slopestyle gold in 2007 . There is no doubt that Thovez is a real talent and a winner.
