Extreme Sports Loses an Adventurer, Antoine Montant
Antoine Montant, a French skier, base jumper and speedflyer known for attacking The Alps in the most daring ways possible, died this past weekend in a base jumping accident in Haute Savoie, France. Early reports indicate Montant’s parachute never deployed during a Saturday jump, though it is unclear if the accident was caused by human error or equipment failure. What is known, and what videos will prove until the Internet dies, is just how brave and creative Montant could be on the mountain. Watch above as he becomes the first human to ever fly grind the cables of Chamonix’s old cable car. We can only hope they have stunts as challenging wherever Montant is now.
