Lucas is currently at home in Argentina preparing for the upcoming season, when he got a call that left him more than excited.
He was invited to the “Seb Michaud Invitational”, an exclusive - invitation only - event featuring 12 of the best international freeriders in the world. The third installment of this event will feature freeride Pros like Seb Michaud (FRA), Jérémy Heitz (CH), Richard Permin (FRA) and now Lucas Swieykowski (ARG).
The camp is set on a lake near Valle Hermoso (ARG) in the middle of the Andes and is only accessible on skis and snowmobiles. The riders will have to conquer the Matensila massif on 2200 meters above sea level for a freeride adventure of it’s own kind. Besides a lot of hiking, the riders will have to face 10 days of camping in the backcountry, making it an unforgettable experience for all of them.
With no cellular coverage in this area, we can’t wait for Lucas to return to civilization and tell us everything about this adventure. Come back soon to read more about this event and be prepared for some breathtaking pictures of Lucas at the Seb Michaud Invitational.
