La PROPAIN Fiesta - Freeride Fiesta 2023 with PROPAIN

Nothing but good vibes and massive jumps with the Propain crew down south!



Freeride Fiesta, the first big freeride event of the season, took place earlier this month in sunny Guadalajara, Mexico. From Rampage veterans and slopestyle stars to 14-year-old youngsters, over 70 riders from all over the world were represented. With a unique atmosphere, a huge jump line, and of course lots of partying, this event is a great change from the usual contest format. The riding was incredible, but the piñatas, tequila, and traditional Mexican food were a great added bonus. Here’s a recap of what went down at Freeride Fiesta 2023 with PROPAIN!

In total there were six PROPAIN riders: Rémy Métailler, Cami Nogueira, Carson Storch, Elias and Daniel Ruso and Ryan Rodriguez. While Rémy and Ryan were most comfortable on their Rage CF’s, the rest of the riders opted for a Spindrift with double crown forks. Only Carson Storch was out on a single crown fork to throw some barspins and tailwhips.

Not everything always goes smoothly. Despite a few falls and many scrapes and bruises, most riders remained injury-free. Cami Nogueira, unfortunately, dislocated her elbow one day before the event. Therefore, she was cheering on the riders from the side.
