O’Neill team rider and X-Games favorite, Sebastien Toutant has officially touched down in Aspen, Colorado signaling the launch of O’Neill’s unique online and social media campaign, the O’Neill Experience. After a long flight last night from Killington Vermont, where Seb placed second in the latest Dew Tour contest, Seb was eager to visit the Winter X Big Air and Slopestyle course at Buttermilk. Under the lights, riders were given their first glance at the 2012 course and an opportunity practice.Check out some great O’Neill Experience photos below!
Seb finished number one overall in Snowboard Slope Style and number two in Snowboard Big Air at the 2011 Winter X Games, and will be looking to repeat his gold-medal performance in Snowboard Slope Style when the 2012 X-Games start later this week. O’Neill and Toutant – better known in the action sports community by his nickname, Seb Toots – have partnered to give fans a behind-the-scenes experience like no other. From practice and media appearances, to interaction with other athletes and competition, fans can log-on and follow every step of Seb’s quest for repeated Winter X glory.
“The Winter X Games are always a fun time, so it will be cool for fans around the world to share in that experience with me,” said Toutant, who is the leading athlete in ESPN’s promotion of this year’s Games. “Hopefully I can give The O’Neill Experience a happy ending with some gold medal performances and other memorable moments!”
