No easy ride

In the video, Candide Thovex travels over grass, sand and even water with more ease than most could manage on snow. According to Audi, the film crew battled blistering heat in the jungle, choppy international seas and a live volcano for the video, whilst Thovex had these challenges and more whilst dressed in a full ski suit. Candide Thovex is internationally renowned for his free-riding ability and rose to fame after he took away gold at the Swatch Free-riding World Tour in 2010.
