For the past couple seasons LJ Strenio has continued to solidify his reputation as one of the hardest working, fearless, fun loving & naturally talented skiers around. Unfortunately LJ hurt his knee this winter and only got to film til’ January. Here’s to the best pre-February segment of the year and putting his Stepups and Bacons to good use!
The SFR tour consists of 3 stops and the overall winner will get a wildcard for the Euro X-Games in Val Thorens, where the first stop was held this weekend.
A couple of our MC’s travelled to France to start off their contest season under sunny skys and a well shaped course.
Roy Kittler once again finished up 3rd on the podium, followed by french rookie jules bonnair as 5th. However Julien Eustache and Leo Taillefer had problems to stomp all of their tricks, so they have to step it up in the next 2 comps to have a chance to qualify for the X-Games.
The Line Skis Mountain Command Team is a mix of the most talented, unique and individual skiers in the world. How can a bunch of individuals be a team you ask? Their creativity is the bond that connects them, driving the voice of our brand and beating the drum of new ways to look at the mountain, the streets, backcountry and everywhere in between. We’re proud of these riders who every day bring something new to all aspects of skiing. Where there’s snow and enough room to slide on it, you’ll find Line MCs. Enjoy the edit and please purchase/download/watch the films in the list at the end to support the companies that support these riders and help push skiing to new levels.
Vote for our riders LJ Strenio and Joss Christensen for King of Style 2011 in Stockholm. All you gotta do is hit “Like” you lazy bums. Obviously your not skiing, why don’t you fill the void by watching these?
Line Skis were represented well at the annual Freeskier Magazine Park Ski Test. It was held in none other than one of the best parks in the world, Keystone’s Area 51. Check the video of the Chronic Cryptonite, Stepup, Afterbang, Blend, and Shadow in action below.
With LJ Strenio‘s reputation as one of the hardest working riders out there, it’s no surprise that people are starting to give him his rightful cred. Check out Poorboyz Photographer/ESPN Blogger Nate Abbott’s shot out to LJ in a recent blog post. In describing Strenio he begins with a fitting sentence saying “Sweat pouring down, helmet askew, skis delaminating (unlikely because he’s on Stepups), boot buckles failing, pants torn to shreds, hoody barely showing its original color throught snowmobile dirt — it isn’t hard to miss rookie LJ Strenio.”
