    Despite the late-season chilly weather, there was plenty of energy from the massive crowd at Saint-Sauveur to rev the internal engines of the three-dozen athletes on hand for the 12th annual Ride Shakedown weekend. With a Shakedown course that included a Big Air jump and series of flashy rail features, and a jam-session format, along with a separate Rail Jam, there was plenty of opportunity for the talented crew to get creative.

    It wasn’t the season Sebastien Toutant had expected. One of the most talented young snowboarders of his generation – the generation of Mark McMorris and Stale Sandbech and Torstein Horgmo – he already had three Winter X Games medals to his name, including a Gold in Slopestyle in 2011. But coming into Euro X Games in Tignes, France, his 2012/13 season had mostly been filled with near misses – a caught rail here, an over-rotated spin there, a finish one spot clear of the podium. In Tignes, Toutant kept the mishaps and the near-misses at bay. In the Slopestyle Final, he took the early lead with his first run (88.0), which put him in good position to podium. With McMorris among the finalists, Toutant knew he’d have to fight to hold on to the top spot. On his second run he landed a clean triple cork, followed by a stomped Cab 1260, earning a score of 95.0. McMorris would come up just short in his third and final run (94.0) for Silver, and the Gold would belong to Toutant.
