Race Face Components has announced the re-signing of arguably the most successful slopestyle rider in history, Paul Basagoitia.
Known for his steezy riding, Bas has carved out a near legendary niche in the hotly contested world of freeride and slopestyle. Race Face first signed the slopestyle sensation immediately following his breakout win at Crankworx in 2004. 2005 saw a Crankworx repeat win, and the rest, as they say, is history. The name Paul Basagoitia is a mainstay on the slopestyle competition circuit and is synonymous with smooth flowy lines and style for miles.
“I am so stoked to be riding for Race Face for another 3 years!” says Bas. “They were one of my very first sponsors, and it’s good to have a long term deal with a company that is always supportive and has your back. The clothing line is right up there with the best of them, and the protection is second to none.”
