Freeride World Tour by Peak Performance releases brand new podcast

No Fall Zone - the Freeride Podcast

FWT by Peak Performance is proud to announce the release of its latest podcast season, taking you into the minds of FWT snowboarders and skiers like never before. This year’s host is Dave Mailman – who has been the voice of the FWT since the beginning, starting as a host – supported by long-time FWT photographer Dom Daher. These two FWT personalities know the Tour better than anyone else, perfectly positioning them to lift the curtain and give fans a glimpse of what life is really like for FWT athletes.

The podcast will be comprised of somewhat structured interviews with the riders, where Dave attempts to unveil the inner workings of the many different characters on the Tour. They go into unchartered territory with each interviewee, showcasing profound insights exclusive to the series. This allows viewers to discover the individuals behind the herculean-like athletes they see on competition day, and how their personalities help them perform under pressure.
