Last winter Whitelines headed to Russia with the Route One snowboard team: Will Radula-Scott, Cody Hierons, Rowan Biddiscombe and Si Belson.

Hitting street spots and travelling by train ('rails by rail') the boys bagged some epic shots, met some incredible people and found themselves in some very bizarre situations.

Part one of this three part series (expertly filmed and edited by Rowan Biddiscombe) tells the story of the crew's adventures in Moscow, the first stop of the trip.

You can read the full story of this epic journey, and see the best shots, in the forthcoming November issue of Whitelines (issue 110) which will be on sale from next week. And keep your eyes peeled on whitelines.com for the next two parts of this series!
