The BRITS took place last week and UK team rider Andy Matthew went and fought for queen and country
Yes, thats right, The BRITS is the British ski and snowboard championships! Its not just a competition either, it's a full blown festival with bands and DJ's playing in various bars and clubs around Laax, switzerland. Ofcourse, being a British event it's all about the Apres ski! Team rider for the UK Andy Matthew went to represent and show us why he won last years 'step up' competition.
The slopestyle course was the same set-up as the European open, giving the Brits a chance to really up their game. After the qualifications, Andy found himself in a very Respectable 3rd place... then came the finals. All hell broke loose apparently with the final top three all having various double flips in thier run. Andy ended up in 4th overall and winning his age catagory. good work andy!
Later on in the week was the good old fashioned Big Air comp, words need not describe the style Andy has, check out the pics below. He finished with another 4th place. For a full list of results, video reviews and pictures of the Brits visit http://www.brits09.com
