X Games Real Snow: Round 2 Fixtures

Frank April

What we said

Thought Frank’s part in Deja Vu was nuts? Well some of this shit fully one-ups it. Every single trick is hammer, simple as that. That backside 50-50 on the gap rail and that drop ender? Both switch. We’ve said it before, but for a tall guy, Frank has got incredible style too.

Dylan Thompson

What we said

When it comes to X Games Real Snow, Dylan is technically a rookie, but his riding sure as hell ain’t. How Dylan doesn’t blow his ACL out every season is beyond us and this part has some SERIOUS rail to drop-offs. Can you imagine hooking up on that last trick? The rail has a freaking knob on it AND the gap is over a wall… so damn insane.

Our Verdict

Two riders flying in defiance of our predictions – and making it safe into the second round. To be honest, we can’t fault them (and we did predict that Frank could well be an overall contender). So we’ll stick with our guns on this one and go with the tall guy for the final – our vote, Frank April just sneaks it.
