From July, Friday 5 to Sunday 7, more than 25'000 people attended the 21st edition of the event. Cheering crowds made up of families and aficionados gathered beneath the glorious blue sky and in a chilled out atmosphere to watch extreme sports shows and competitions. « We are very satisfied with the public participation, says Hubert Monod, President of the Organising Committee of the Swatch Free4Style, the visitors gave excellent feedbacks. We want to keep on ensuring great conditions and best sports actions for the next year event.”
FMX: Mat Rebeaud regains his title

which he carried out for the first time in Estavayer-le-Lac. During the FMX show, the
spectators enjoyed watching an unprecedented trick in Switzerland: a crazy double backflip
performed by the Australian Josh Sheehan.
