LAURENT DE MARTIN
After winning the “Swiss Champion” title in Slopestyle as part of the Swiss Slopestyle team, Laurent was looking for a change. He decided to focus on Backcountry and Street ski films. He gained credibility as a backcountry skier after finishing in second place at his first Redbull Linecatcher competition.
Now, his objective is : more pow and freeriding, with a freestyle touch! Last season, Laurent was invited into the cast of one of the biggest free ski production companies, Level1. In 2018-2019, he completed his second season with Level 1 for the 20th, and last film. At the same time, he produces his own web series called “From Switzerland withe love” with the movie maker Titouan Bessire. The episodes are available on Laurent’ social media.
“Pierro” was born in Strasbourg, France but for the last 10 years he calls Lausanne home. He spends many of his weekends in Morgins where he snowboards in the winter, and freeboards in the summer. What is freeboarding? It’s a six wheeled board that has the same sensation as a snowboard, but on asphalt.
Pierre is passionate about freeboarding, and that is apparent when we watch his films. For example, riding the streets of Lausanne dressed like a waiter and delivering coffee to people! His videos get millions of views all around the world. Have a look at his films and you will understand why he is one of the 10 ambassadors of the Freeboard brand.

UCI BMX Supercross
Swiss BMX prodigy, Ugo lives in Troistorrents, close to the brewery. Addicted to adrenaline and speed, Ugo trains hard with passion and tenacity. His goal: to become one of the best Swiss BMX Supercross riders. He’s only 20 years old, but he is no stranger to the podium in Swiss, European and international competitions. Since 2018, he rides in the Elite category and is shoulder to shoulder with the best international riders.
When he’s not biking, we can find Ugo in the backcountry with his friends and really fat skis.
Freeride skiing / DH biking
Eva Battolla is a multi-faceted athlete! As comfortable on her skis as on her DH bike, she competes against the best international riders in summer AND winter. She participates in the Freeride World Qualifier in winter, and the downhill mountain biking World Cup and Championships in summer.
