After A Heavy Fall, Xavier De Le Rue Thanked His Helmet

The French snowboarder Xavier de Le Rue, a multiple world champion in snowboard cross and freeride, thanked his helmet, which” did not serve that to decorate“, victim of a heavy fall in freeride on Wednesday 1st March.

Falls, Xavier De Le Rue has known. But it would seem that the one he suffered on Wednesday 1 March could have been fatal. Fatale if he had not worn a helmet:

I was very lucky today, an accident to the con that could have ended badly. After a corridor, you were wrinkling a nearly flat slope that I wrinkled all winter and all of a sudden I apparently typed a pebble and rolled it on other pebbles first head.My brother found me unconscious but all is well now. I regained my senses with a big headache as a bonus. I was very lucky. A good lesson that reminds us that these helmets do not only serve to decorate, “said the former freeride world champion.

Wearing a helmet in a station is not compulsory by SPORTINGOLOGY. On the other hand, almost all the riders who take off in off-piste wear. In competition, especially on the Freeride World Tour, all skiers and snowboarders are required to wear a helmet, a back protector, and an ARVA.

Xavier De Le Rue is gone for a fright. A fall suffered on a route that he knows however to perfection.

Off-road safety rules

In the winter, practically every day, practitioners lose their lives. A bag, a DVA (victim detector in avalanche), a shovel, a probe:this is what you have to take at each of your exits. Here are other safety rules to follow and some advice given by Arnaud Trinquier, former director of the Tignes Ski Area:

“-Read the avalanche risk bulletin which often shows you the most dangerous slopes and avoid them.
– Never leave the tracks alone. If you decide to do so, indicate your itinerary to a loved one or someone with a confidence back schedule so that he can alert the rescue if you are not back in time.

– When you decide to leave the tracks, consider equipping yourself, shovel, probe, DVA are essential, but you must know how to use it, train yourself before! Check your gear! It is of no use either, if it is failing! An ABS bag can also help you in certain situations and a simple RECCO pad can also be of great help even if it does not allow the autonomy of the group.

– As you progress off-piste, be aware of signs, accumulation areas, wind-swept areas, slopes greater than 30° on your route, collapse sounds in the snowpack.The slightest doubt should make you give up and join the marked trails.

– If you have any doubts when approaching a section of your route or the slope becomes stiff, for example, separate, cross the”dangerous” area one by one, watching for each other. Thus, in the event of an avalanche, only one person will be taken away and you can locate it quickly and give rescue, time is a very important parameter in avalanche rescue. After 15 minutes, the lethal risk increases very rapidly. And if the visibility is not good or if the wind is strong, stay on the runways because in these conditions, you will find yourself going to be very complicated and your evacuation by helicopter in case of injury is compromised, then add not. Especially if the people who come to help you are going to have to take risks themselves to rescue you.

If you are unsure of yourself, call a mountain professional, monitor or guide. With them, the rules enacted above remain the same, they are in no case an insurance against avalanches… ”
