Sebastien Toutant Wins Ride Shakedown 2012

The 11th annual Ride Shakedown just invaded St. Sauveur in Quebec, Canada. The competitors were greeted with a burly setup, equipped with a big air section that ended with a few gigantic rails. This event garners a lot of attention due to the unique contest format where riders must call-out their tricks each run and can’t call the same trick twice. The riders are forced to plan out their line and the pressure to land the exact trick is on. No room for last minute decisions here.

Local pro and all around slopestyle monster, Sebastien Toutant, took the win at the event. The 19-year-old has come onto the contest scene at full throttle and is the poster child of the young guns taking over snowboarding. Watch his winning tricks below.
