A couple of hours ago all videos for the "first all-video, all out-of-bounds-shred Winter X Games contest", Real Snow Backcountry, have dropped. Sit back and enjoy the epic shredding of Gigi Rüf, Nicolas Müller, John Jackson, Devun Walsh, Iikka Backstrom, Mathieu Crepel, Jussi Oksanen and Mark Sollors.
UPDATE - Turns out we're a bit too handy with this internet thing as we'd managed to embed the videos here when apparently we shouldn't have been able to. So unfortunately you'll have to click over to check all 8 of the 90-second bangers. Apologies for the extra finger tap required.]
[UPDATE UPDATE - They fixed the matrix and the videos are all back and able to be viewed now. Round 1 of the voting is on and this is who's faceing off against who: Gigi Rüf v Iikka Backstrom, Nicolas Müller v Mark Sollors, Devun Walsh v John Jackson, Jussi Oksanen v Mathieu Crepel. Watch them all, then head over to the Real Snow Backcountry page to cast your votes. Voting for Round 1 ends Feb 28.]
