X Games Real Snow is one of the hottest comps in the industry, it showcases riders hitting some of the gnarliest spots the streets have to offer. Each of the 6 riders has just a minute and a half to show the world that they’ve got the sauce to go toe to toe with the best riders in the world. 2019 has been an iconic year for the contest, with Maria Thomsen becoming the first ever woman to take part, and christ on a bike what a banger she’s produced. We’ve also got Will Smith reppin’ the UK for the first time. He was out in Finland filming and has absolutely come up with the goods.
Maria Thomsen splits her time between being a full-time mum and a full-time badass. Her ender in last years ‘The Uninvited’ was all time, and she’s certainly come out all guns blazing for this too. She’s not just ‘good for a girl’ she’s a dope rider, no ifs or buts or maybes. Thomsen sticks a couple of meaty bails in there to prove that she is still human, and it just shows how much of a committed and dedicated rider she is.
