BRITS 2015 – Route One Bangers and Cash

[series align=’left’]Well what a way to kick off the Brits week here in Tignes!

It’s been Bangers and Cash all day here with the first event sponsored by Route One – and, much like the weather, there’s been plenty of heat out on the hits.

Divvied up into Under 16 and Over 16 categories, an open jam format took up most of the day with three hours to impress the judges – before a half-hour(ish) Final, which was inevitably extended to allow everyone to throw down their best.

Lewis Sonvico took the top spot on the men’s podium – rodeo-ing the gap over the flat-down rail into the landing of the rocket rail – clearing a younger competitor and Whitelines’ photographer in the process; and styling out tapped tricks off the rocket rail to stoke out the crowd.

Trinder also impressed throughout the day with rodeo 7’s off the rocket and an array of the usual skills. John Weatherley meanwhile grabbed bronze, charging through the course with ample speed and skill through the rails.
