DailyMotion expands Freeride World Tour coverage

Video-sharing website DailyMotion will provide live coverage of all six stages of the 2013 edition of the Freeride World Tour skiing and snowboarding series.

DailyMotion agreed the deal directly with the tour after having shown only the final stage of the campaign over the past two years.

In July 2012, the tour merged with the Freeskiing World Tour and the North Face Masters of Snowboarding series to establish a unified global series under the Freeride World Tour banner.

The 2013 season commences on January 7 in Revelstoke, Canada, and will conclude with the finals on March 23 in Verbier, Switzerland.
