http://mpora.com/videos/hKOAFjM4b Eric Willett takes us for a trip through the Billabong Ante Up course in a very gloomy Whistler.

With "uncooperative" weather conditions it was blue paint to the rescue, and riders had to hope for just enough contrast to get their runs stomped. Undeterred, the Breck boy throws down on the giant booter, then gives his two cents about the new compulsory use of helmets for this, the first 5-star TTR event of the new season.

Defending champions are often easily unseated - just look at Nadal - so everyone will be gunning for Seb Toots. With four double-corks at his disposal, could Eric Willett be the man to do it? Oh, and apparently that's Willett like "Gillette", and not "fillet". Who knew?
