The full list of riders for the 2018 Freeride World Tour have just been announced and of the 42 competitors, 12 of them are rookies joining the ranks of the Elite for the first time.
It's a shorter list of competitors compared to 2017, as some of you who follow the event may have noticed. In total there will be 6 snowboard women competing, 8 snowboard men, 8 ski women and 20 ski men.
Here are who the FWT say we should be watching in the 2018 event:
Who to watch: Ski Women
Who to watch: Snowboard Women
Who to watch: Snowboard Men
