From Olympic medalists to big mountain icons, Natural Selection Tour announces the first half of 2023 invitees including Langland, Mindnich, Gerard, Fasani, Rüf and Jackson to join the Tour as it kicks off with DUELS in February 

The Natural Selection Tour is ramping up for the biggest season yet as Hailey Langland, Nils Mindnich, Red Gerard, Kimmy Fasani, Gigi Rüf and John Jackson are some of the first newly invited riders to be announced for the 2023 season. They’ll join the 11 riders who qualified from 2022, and seven additional riders to be announced by the end of the year. All riders will start off with Natural Selection DUELS, designed to bring out riders’ creativity and highlight new zones and snowboarding’s diverse styles. 
The winner of each of the Natural Selection DUELS moves on to the next two Tour stages: the YETI Natural Selection Revelstoke and Natural Selection Alaska. The DUELS rider match-ups will be pulled from the NST randomizer and announced daily on the 

Natural Selection Instagram starting in early January.
