The first stage of the Swatch Freeride World Tour by The North Face 2014 kicks off at 10:30am this morning at Courmayeur, Italy. The six-stage freeride competition will take place on a new race course and can be followed in live streaming.

The organisation of the Swatch Freeride World Tour by The North Face has decided to anticipate the start of the Courmayeur competition in order to grab the best weather and snow conditions. The competition therefore takes place on Friday 17 January at 10:30.

The race course has been modified, too: the athletes will descend from Cresta d’Arp towards Youla and finish at Plan de la Gabba in the Courmayeur Mont Blanc Funivie ski resort. The Top View, ie the observation point for spectators and media, will now be located at the top of the Plan de la Gabba chairlift and can be reached on foot from Col Chécrouit.

The award's ceremony is scheduled to take place on Friday at 18:00 in Piazza Abbé Henry. This will be followed at 18:30 with autographs.

Live streaming: the race will be streamed live from 10:30 onwards on the officiale website www.freerideworldtour.com
