Mathieu CrepelIt’s been a perfect week-end for MAThieu CREPEL in the FIS Snowboard world championship!
Double gold medal for the Pyrenees kid. On Friday he won the Big Air beating a bunch of Finnish riders led by Antti Autti with a huge switch backside 1080 on the last of his tries. Huge respect when you know how Antti performed during the O’Neill Evolution last week. Today Mat killed the Half Pipe with perfect runs.

So a bit like in boxing Mat reunites the world titles and carries now two belts since he is reining 0506 TTR world champ and now FIS “freestyle” world champ. This is also probably the best way he found to show the world his brand new 0708 pro-model. Now it’s time to head to Laax for the BEO where the riding level is expected to be incredible!
