Sebastian Tournissac is the reigning IGSA Street Luge World Cup Champion. In addition, the talented French racer finished second overall in Classic Luge and seventh overall for Downhill Skateboarding in the 2007 World Cup Series.

If there was a title for the IGSA’s top ranked all-around racer, Sebastian would hold that distinction as well. He’s a veteran racer who is always a threat no matter what discipline he decides to compete in.
