The FWT Challenger series will kick off this week, with the full roster for region 2 also announced. The talented line-up features FWT relegated athletes looking to re-qualify, and the top FWT Qualifier riders wanting to step up into the big league. The series is made up of three stops:
For the first time, athletes from South America will participate, and three FWT rookies will take part for their chance to re-qualify. Other notable mentions include former junior world champions Jackson Bathgate (CAN) and Mia Winans (USA), as well as Orion Cherney (USA), who is competing as a telemarker. Michaela Davis-Meehan (AUS) is fresh off a win at the FWT Kicking Horse Golden BC Pro and is coming in a hot favorite, while Nigel Joseph-badu Ziegler recently switched up his skis for a snowboard, and is crushing it.
