Val earned bronze in slopestyle, which gave him the points to win the Overall Park and Pipe Crystal Globe Title, a fitting win for a rider whose talents are truly the stuff of an ATV.

"To win the overall, which means to be the most consistent out of all three freestyle disciplines, I am honored to have won it for the second year in a row,” Val told the Australian Associated Press.

He also won the Crystal Globe for Big Air in 2023, so he’s the proud owner of three of the championship titles.

Valentino has been making waves since he was in grade school; he was a mainstay at The Launch while he was coming up. And over the past couple of years, he has continued to cement his status as a full-on problem in the competition circuit. And, he’s only 18.

The Aussie rides with immense power and textbook style, a deadly combination. (see: Highest airs with Kaishu at Laax 2023.) He has said in multiple interviews that excelling in all disciplines of contest riding is a huge goal of his, as the riders he looks up to all excel in a variety of terrain.

If there’s a powerhouse that could accomplish that goal, Val has the chops and the 2024 Crystal Globe is a testament to his momentum.
