Quebec Breaky Sand

Le Releis hosted some nice races... but they should stick to Poutine

 Here we find local Quebec-er Mathieu Bertrand about to sample a sausage-bagel... don't bother Matt. That orange looks nice, but you're a long way from Florida.

The home fries were good, but it was raining outside. Quebec's biggest tourism draw? Cheese Curds. Stick with what works folks, you're doing too much here.


Below we find Chilean native Martin Anguita experiencing his first poutine. You know how it goes boys, try it once and you'll never go back.

You thought holding hands with a hot partner made you cool?


You were wrong. The bar is raised.
Walking around, strutting your stuff, holding hands with a significant other... The game has changed. Mass participation and inverted aerials required.

...Not that I ever hold hands with people anyways. Ew. Cooties. Gross.

Thanks Anne for the video!

Harry Potter

Just straddling every broom he gets his hands on.  This is no different here.  Lauren Salko said this better than I ever could have... "I didn't get DQ'd even though I clearly straddled in the midst of a disgrace of a slalom run."  You have brought your parents shame, Lauren.  Fortunately, this blog will absolve you of your sins.  Just ask Bobby Farrell.

Karma's a bitch, we know Blair Waldorf is.
Tuckerman's tomorrow with the boys!  Slalom Tokyo Drift, OUT.

Sugar Slalom. Unreal. Always.

A straddle!  In GS!  Right in front of a camera?  How fortuitous!  The best of the best from the best race ever at Stowe, the best ski area in the Green Mountains.

Of course, you know what they say about the Green Mountains... the best thing is their view of the Whites.  Live Free and Shred.

I can hear your knee ligaments crying out in terror even now.  Death before dishonor.
Well... It's nice that your Markers came off here.  Not that there was any ever doubt.
Powering through.  Aggressive.  Beautiful. 
And that's what ski racing is all about.  But it's the sugar slalom.. is she FIS legal?  I don't know.. I just don't know.  I'll avoid any further comments.

Winding It On Down

All the snow is melting!  Sorry for the lack of posts... But I have just got solid stream of blogs to round out the season.  Seventh Carnival at BC was unreal.  Breezy Johnson getting WORKED at Mammoth.

That gate is blue... not.
One of the most beautiful video still shots I've ever seen, all things considered.
Not great... but not terrible either.
Okay, landed on the feet, no problem, let's just-
Oh boy.  That escalated quickly.
Video + Conclusion after the jump:

Waterville BreakySand

Back to the Glory Days. Waterville Valley: birthplace of SlalomTokyoDrift.
Found some lovebirds sharing a sandwich in the lodge. Snapped a picture of them sharing food... before they started exchanging saliva. Best sandwich to date, but the rating could have been biased by sexual tensions. Food tastes better when love is in the air, just ask...

LADY AND THE TRAMP!!! Looks like Charlie found his true love in UNH's latest 21-year-old freshman.


Abstract Dejection

Hig just doing the damn thing on the water ski course up in Canada.  Is ski season over yet?  It's hard to know for sure.

When in doubt, pinch it out.
Can't go swimming if you don't want to get a little wet.
The beginning of the blurry destruction.
Getting there...
Awesome.  SO awesome.
Double knuck drag!  I got out of the game too early.
Canada seems kinda fun here!

Maisie Doesn't Crash Here

... April Fool's...

From Norams or Natties in Squahhh, Maisie "Jekyll and H" Ide takes a crash right before the finish.  Maisie "Blinds" Ide almost pulled it off but Sqqqqquuahahhhhhh isn't for everyone.  Excellent ski height here from Maisie "I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I r" Ide here.  That's a Bon Jovi joke.  Almost a pole valuting video.
Maisie living the arc life just like you read about.
Late?  Fuck it.  Tuck.  Finish line is so close you can taste it.
This carnage is less fair and more sudden than Sonny Corleone at the tollbooth.
That's an inside gate if ever I've seen one.  In this situation, Maisie is Coco Crisp, and the gate is James Shields.
See the violent and stunning conclusion after the jump!
