The poor visibility that has plagued the events at The Brits 2016 continued on the day of competition, but no-one was as bothered about it as they had been at the slopestyle and halfpipe. Perhaps that was because Laax was covered in several inches of fresh snow, right down to the base of the resort.

It was therefore no surprise to see lots of riders heading for the freshies, but plenty also turned out for the Bangers & Cash rail jam. Of all the event formats, it's probably the easiest to do in the fog, so the riders were far from put off.

In the end it was Matt McCormick and Sabrina Burnham who took the golds in the mist; scroll down to see the full gallery.
