I’m sure a lot of readers (not least Whitelines very own editor Ed – please don’t fire me!) will be disgusted to see us bigging up a skiing video on the site. But before you start hammering your “outraged of Tunbridge Wells” responses into the comments section below, kindly hear us out.
Not only is this section beautifully shot and set to a banging soundtrack (who doesn’t like LCD Soundsystem?) but the obstacles look great, and the way it’s been cut together, so that it looks like it’s just several long top-to-bottom runs through town, is something quite different and pretty cool.
