Travis Rice delivers in Asia's first ever Freeride World Qualifier.

Travis Rice has delivered the goods in Asia’s first ever Freeride World Qualifier event, nailing a 96-point ride to take the win in testing Hakuba conditions. It was the first time that the American snowboarding icon had pinned on a bib in the global competition, and it took just moments to see why so many regard him as one of the best in the sport.

Rice finished above Japanese rider Shina Biyjima and Spaniard David Vicente in the men’s snowboard competition. Anna Orlova, Taisuke, Kusunoki and Elisabeth Garrizen were the respective winners in the women’s snowboard, men’s ski and women’s ski events.
