Bode Merrill’s gold medal in the X Games Real Snow competition was well deserved.
Although in the end no-one won the public choice award (because of a “vote tampering” scandal apparently) we’d actually predicted Bode wouldn’t get it.
But at the same time we thought his part stood a good chance of getting the nod from the judges. It was one of, if not the best in the competition, featuring frankly insane one-footers, crazy redirects (like the one at 0.50) and that mental rodeo to front board over a fence.
The man is insanely talented and also (quite clearly) just insane. But what a part though eh?
