The snowboarding world has always been pretty good at keeping it real. When contests start getting so out of hand that it seems the sport’s soul is long gone, leave it to Ben Ferguson and Mark McMorris to come up with a solution. Red Bull Recharged is a step in a different direction, combining what we all love about spending time on snow: progression, filming, and good old spring riding. The contest went down this past week, with none other than Travis Rice himself judging.
"To push competitive snowboarding in a more positive direction, let’s bring the level of rotations down by creating a course that’s harder to ride and more skatepark influenced. Working with Mark and Frank, that’s what Red Bull Recharged build is all about,” said Ben Ferguson to Snowboarder Mag about the contest. Check out 11 minutes of highlights here
