We've been frothing to see footage of Travis Rice's gamechanging backcountry freestyle contest - the inaugural Red Bull Supernatural - and here it is. BANG! Watch and bow down...

Yes, Travis won his own contest, but let's be honest - when faced with this kind of terrain you'd always fancy a punt on the man whether he'd designed the course or not. But more than this, or Gigi coming second or Nicolas third, or John Jackson taking best trick for a back 10 dub off the booter mid-way down... more than all this is that this contest has shifted the goalposts in terms of what we can expect from a snowboard event.

Roll on the full TV show edit as this sneak peek is pretty darn heavy.
