So here it is, the official recap from the Nike Snakes & Hammers event in Montafon last week.
We’ve waxed lyrical about this event in the past already, but how rad is it to see Seppe Smits, Tor Lundstrom and Kevin Backstrom compete against old masters like Steve Gruber and David Benedek? The young guns may be pros themselves, but alongside the legends they still look like Joes.
However, in the end the Joes came out on top; big and stylish tricks were awarded time bonuses meaning that Seppe’s time of 1.10 was whittled down further by threes both ways in and a backflip nosegrab.
Kevin Backstrom stuck a ‘bolts’ front seven, seen in the video above, to walk home with not only third place overall but best hammer as well, with Spencer O’Brien winning it for the ladies.The final podium: Clemens Schattschneider Seppe Smits and Kevin Backström. Photo: Cyril Mueller
