Chatel Mountain Style 2012 Official Video

Châtel is not your normal stylish Slopestyle event full of elegance and flowing moves. The numerous massive obstacles carved in to the mountain face mean riders are in a constant battle to keep their bikes on track. After some early morning weather warnings and rain the event seemed to get off to a slow start but as soon as the riders hit the trail – things got real!

First place went to Brandon Semenuk, a well-deserved victory. Brandon absolutely hooned it down the mountain, only just managing to keep his bike under him at times but his brave lines and massive air tricks including a backflip of the massive step-down meant there could be no other winner.

Kyle Strait conquered the 300m altitude drop down the mountain face with a lot of commitment. Kyle completed his run with a massive Superman off the final kicker. Impressing the judges with his line, technical skills and originality he leaves the event with third place.
