After the Freeride World Tour was put on hold in the wake of a nasty avalanche, they were back on track in Andorra last week. And what a track it was! Check out this winning run from New Zealander Sam Smoothy. Yes, that really is his last name, and with a name like that, there is no need for a nick-name.
Red Rock Rendezvous is just a little more than a month away, so I thought I would tempt you a bit with this great video from Paul Robinson putting up a handful of beautiful boulder problems throughout the canyons.
Unfortunately for most of us out here in the West, it has been a pretty dismal winter. If you're a skier or rider in the lower 48, you all know that all the snow is dumping pretty much everywhere east of the Mississippi, with the real hotspot right now being Vermont. Although this last video is recently released, it is actually footage from the previous season. But even that can make us envious of how good it is up in New England right now.
Have a great weekend! - James
