The Freeride World Tour has announced Australian snowboarder Michaela Davis-Meehan as a season wildcard for 2023 competition.
Davis-Meehan commenced her Freeride World Tour journey on the Freeride World Qualifiers back in 2016 and competed for three years before securing a place on the 2020 Freeride World Tour.
Her rookie year saw her take a first place podium in Ordino Arcalis and a second place podium at Hakuba and Fierberbrunn, finishing second on the leader board at the end of the tour.
Her following 2021 season was not as successful and saw her drop out of the tour, returning to the Freeride World Tour Qualifiers earlier this year with podium placements.
“This is such an awesome surprise! I’m super stoked to give the Tour another crack, and I can’t wait to get sendy and see what I can bring to the FWT this time around” said Davis Meehan when told of her wildcard.
Will we have an Aussie in the top three at the end of the tour? We hope so. Watch this space.
