Straight off the back of last week’s US Grand Prix at Copper Mountain, this week the GB Freestyle Snowboard team are out in Stoneham, Quebec for the second slopestyle event in which riders can earn valuable FIS points in the run up to the 2014 Sochi winter Olympics. Billy Morgan slapped a GoPro on his head yesterday and took a few runs down the course. Anyone that’s used a GoPro before will know just how humbling they are in terms of making everything look a lot smaller than they felt at the time. The thing is, these kickers still look bloody enormous (probably because, y’know, they are…)! How rad is it to see Billy’s backside rodeos and huge backside double cork 1260′s as the man himself sees them? The one at 1:37 is particularly epic – you can clearly see the point where he dips his shoulder for that second cork.
We wish all the guys out there the best of luck and will be keeping you informed on their progress as and when we find out ourselves.
