You don’t see contest runs like this all too often. Sammy Luebke absolutely flogged the competition at the FWT Chamonix Mont Blanc 2016. Effortlessly mixing freestyle tricks with freeride swagger, Sammy tossed floaty front and back 3’s (with grabs no less) and finished his line with a high speed double drop. Sammy’s run was a thing of beauty and a pure expression of his natural talent. Honored to see him throw down so hard on the Ultra Mountain Twin which has quickly become his favorite board.

A win in Chamonix, matched with a 5th place at the first FWT stop in Andorra has put Sammy in the lead on the tour. The tour ramps up again first week of March in Fieberbrunn, Austria. Looking forward to watching Sammy lay down another epic track like this one from Chamonix last week!
