Riding with the Free Radicals
11th October 2011
The group of Swedish skiers and snowboarders has released its latest video and it is well worth a watch. They stomp the powder in some of the finest places in the world. See the trailer here.
Free Radicals is a loosely knitted group of free riders that began in 1987 to promote and develop young talent.
Many of Scandinavia’s big names in freeriding have had a sequence in a Free Radicals film like Henrik Windstedt, Jon Olsson, Kaj Zackrisson, Sverre Liliequist, Jacob Wester and Jesper Rönnbäck.
The 2011 Free Radicals film, The Sunny Side, is the 12th one.
It will premiere on 21st October in Gothenburg, Sweden and then gets shown around Europe.
