Maxence Parrot finally took home the victory after the grand finale of the 14th edition of Shakedown presented by Videotron Mobile on Saturday night at the Avila slope of Mont Saint-Sauveur. The 20 years old Bromont local is in fact the first rider in history to land a triple cork in this major competition and went home with the $ 20,000 cash prize.
This is also the first victory of his career at Shakedown. Engaged in a fight from beginning to the end with his good buddy Sebastien Toutant, Max won the battle, but Toots was also amazing in the finals. However, he had to settle for second place and took home $ 5,000.
"There was still pressure, acknowledged Parrot. I’ve been riding Shakedown for 4 or 5 years and I had never won. I won some contests all over the world, but not here in Quebec. It was time! I'm super happy. This is a lifelong dream for me to win here. Another thing I can check off my list! »
