http://mpora.com/videos/aw9JG6lcv Last time we saw Jake Blauvelt in episode one, he'd mashed his back and was forced to take some unscheduled downtime. He remained as casual as ever about it though, saying "six weeks will be done before you know it". Really? Surely if you knew you had a pow trip to Japan at the end, that time would drag like hell? Especially when you get to ride with Finnish demigod Heikki Sorsa.

Jake's ridden a lot of pow recently, but nothing has come close to this, and he kills it. Looks like all that fannying around with elastic things in Hawaii paid off....
