PLG was an underdog who climbed to the top of the vert scene in the late 1990s and is now not only a fixture at the top, but a significant threat in Big Air as well. He triple medaled at XG in both 2004 and 2005 in the two demanding Vert disciplines and Big Air. After taking gold in Vert at X in 2005, he remained at the top vert scene for the remainder of the season finishing first overall on the WCS North American rankings.
In the spring 2005 issue of SBC, PLG is described as, quot;A true underdog who climbed to the top...known across the planet as one of the best vert skaters to ever step on a board.quot; PLG triple medaled at X in 2004 (silver in Big Air, Vert, VBT) and is a triple medal threat again in 2005. Although he's a veteran of X at age 25 (he has made 7 XG appearances and has 7 medals), he is still a quot;kidquot; by vert standards.
Pierre-Luc represents the present and future of vert skating. This French-Canadian has been on the rise since 2000, and is now one of the top contenders for the podium at any event he enters. In 2003, he finished #2 on both the VTC series, and the WCS World ranking. In the trick department he is solid and consistent. PLG is the only skater currently doing a nollie indy heelflip 360.
After pocketing two silver medals at XG 2000 (Vert & Vert Doubles) he ended the year ranked 3rd in the world in Vert. More recently Pierre-Luc placed 2nd at the B3 in Ahaheim (March 2001) and won the Best Trick contest at Slam City Jam (May '01). This French-Canadian was schooled early in his career by Andy Macdonald.
