Little did you know, there’s actually two snowboard contest that have been going down in Russia this week. Moscow, a mere 28-hour train journey away from Sochi played host to Nike‘s Helipark Rail Jam.
A fairly typical street set up (aside from the helicopter blade bent into a rainbow rail, awesome) played host to a whole bunch of Russian rail riders, all judged by ultra-gangsta Denis Leontyev.
Some sick stuff got chucked, including a ridiculous transfer back-lip at the end, all as part of a campaign designed to get Russians exercising outside even when it’s f*cking cold, #PlayRussia.
