Call us schoolyard if you want – but we reckon there’s always room for the ‘who would win in a fight?’ debate. Take the X Games Real Snow format for example – banging video part vs banging video part, unleash it on the public and BOOM. All of a sudden everyone’s an expert. (If you haven’t watched this year’s yet by the way you’re totally blowing it. They’re utter madness.)
But while it’s all very good comparing contemporary riders – we haven’t seen it put to the public on who would win across the ages…. Enter Onboard’s Retro Snow: 8 classic parts going head to head until one, and only one, is victorious.
We’ve taken a small selection of the classic parts available online and drawn them out of a hat for what promise to be fully epic face-offs – cutting down the numbers through the rounds each week until we get to our final battle. And don’t worry if your ideal match-up isn’t in here – there could well be future bouts to come (… slightly subject to how many parts we can get online).
Here’s the schedule so far:
OPENING ROUND (January 11-17)
SECOND ROUND (January 18-24)
FINALS (January 25-February 1)
