Edouard Therriault Takes Bronze in FIS Font Romeu

Jan 192022

Welcome to the Slopestyle podium! Wildcard Canadian rookie Edouard Therriault claimed third place and his first podium finish in Men’s Freeski Slopestyle at the FIS World Cup at Font Romeu, France.

From January 14-16, 2022, Font Romeu, surrounded by the Pyrenees Mountains, hosted the annual FIS Freeski World Cup competition for the fifth time. For extra incentive, the competition marked the final chance to earn qualifier points in the Slopestyle disciplines for the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games.

Therriault came to Font Romeu as a wildcard. One week prior, Therriault managed to qualify into the finals at the FIS World Cup at Mammoth Mountain and finished his Slopestyle run in seventh place.

 

At Font Romeu, Therriault proved that he was ready to compete in the big leagues with 81.7 points placing him in third. “I’m really happy with my performance. It’s an amazing feeling,” said Therriault after taking third place at Font Romeu. “I had my routine set, and I went into it without thinking or worrying too much about what everybody else was going to do. I just believed in myself, trusted myself and it worked out great.”

Looking ahead, Therriault will bring his skills to X Games Aspen 2022 this coming weekend. Competing in Big Air and Knuckle Huck disciplines, he will make his debut in the world’s largest showcase for winter action sports. Plus, the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games are less than three weeks away and Therriault is a strong contender to represent Canada. Stay tuned!
