Today was the first day of training in the slopestyle course for both men and women, and the second training session in the halfpipe. Most of the pipe athletes are still trying to figure it out as there is a little more vert and less transition than a typical 22 foot pipe.
Slopestyle training was pretty mellow. Most of the athletes were spending their time figuring out speed, with exception of Bobby Brown who brought out his fresh new switch double 1260. We were planning on dropping a little video of today’s slopestyle training, but we were trying out a new wide angle on the ContourHD and the footage was all out of focus. We will be on our game for practice tomorrow and have a video for your to enjoy.
Tomorrow TJ will be tweeting for X-Games at 1:30 MST. I will post the details about it in the morning.
