It’s going out on Dave – does this mean we’ll see endless repeats of you guys for years, a la Top Gear?
TW: Ha, they’ll get their money’s worth out of us I’m sure! They’re chatting about series two already, so hopefully you won’t see too many repeats of series one before we have the chance to go again.
Who’s the coolest Dave – Downing, Lee or Vincent?
AG: Ooh, good question! I had a Lib Tech Dave Lee – it was yellow and I loved it. It felt like it was made just for me.
TW: I used to ride for A Snowboards, and I had the David Vincent Pipe Pro. But then again, Dave Downing didn’t get appreciated enough. He was killing it. But I’m going to go with Vincent. He invented the frontside rodeo – need we say more?
“Sven Thorgren couldn’t say yes quickly enough. I can only imagine what he must have thought when he got to Yorkshire…”
Sunday’s episode was filmed at Halifax dry slope – what can people expect from that?
TW: In a nutshell, it’s us lot trying to do a world first. We enlisted the help of a guy that came 4th in the Olympics but has never ridden on dry slope [Sven Thorgren], a guy who’s crazy [Scott Penman], and someone who hasn’t strapped a snowboard on in over a year [Dan Wakeham]. It’s a really strange episode, but Joe outdid himself by building the loop. It was such a good day – even when the cameras stopped rolling, we kept sessioning the jump.
AG: I’d never been to Halifax before. In fact, it was my first time on Snowflex! I was all over the place. I used to ride Dendix, tried to force a turn and ended up flat on my back. I had to just straightline it, because I couldn’t turn.
You have Sven doing some skits – how would you rate him on a scale of one to Daniel Day-Lewis?
AG: He was alright, actually! And he was just brilliant in general. He’d never been on Snowflex either, and when he got there he could have quite easily got all pro-snowboarder about it and said, ‘what is this?!’. There are probably hundreds of pros who wouldn’t have even strapped in, but he was amazing.
TW: We got him on the grass skis and nearly broke his legs, but he was fully into it. He just really wanted to go snowboarding, so when we asked he couldn’t say yes quickly enough. I can only imagine what he must have thought when he got to Yorkshire…
