Yeap, as you should know already, it’s all about Speed & Glory. The Quest Lib Tech Banked Slalom at Coronet Peak.

Do you think I’m joking? This is a serious competition. It’s business time.

And then it’s racing time.

And the predictable after race party at the bottom. Drinks, sausages and snowballs for everybody … and bananas. Good times.

Last event of a freakn’ busy month, the Big Air at Coronet Peak. View from the side of the jump.

This is the not-so-cool part of the game. Not even the people who won medals for New Zealand could get in. Just for “those” special people who don’t even touched the snow.

So after the comp Tim and I rolled by the Red Bull house in Queenstown to catch up with Dave and Caleb. And we found a way better atmosphere than the VIP lounge up Coronet. By the way, on the screen on the back is the new Manual #35. Coming out soon.

And then even more rain on the drive back. A few days of editing coming ahead.
