Just got this email from Austrian shredder Florian Heim…

Hi Shred Crew!

A week ago, better said last saturday the 07.01.2012 I went to Zell am See in Salzburg. I decided to stop riding powder for one day to go there and ride the “Rome Railbattle Zell am See”. It was an Incity-Railbattle and about 35 snowboarders from all around Europe were competing. I went through qualification, to semi finals and then advanced to the superfinal of the best 4 riders.

In the end I scored the second place, pretty stoked about that, cause it was my first contest for this year.

cheers
Flo

Shred translator, Emanuel Testen sends his submission that’s a tick different than most. He took the time to do some digital art. Good luck Emi.

Who Is in This Picture? – me, Ted
Describe Your Image – couldn’t decide which pic I should post – so I combined them ;) I’m a big fan of Ted – he’s my idol. I love to SHRED – but I really need a back protector. Safety is always one of the most important things – but FIS really s*cks. Ted’s totally right: “FIS is stubborn and clueless”. let’s stop the ignorance of FIS! ;) I wish everyone good luck for the photo contest, ski fast and carefully. Happy shredding :) greetings Emi

It’s pretty sweet when you open up the main newspaper in your neck of the woods and discover that they gave you and the action sport you love a 2-page spread. We just got an email from Austrian shredder Roman Kuss with just such a situation happen to him.

Here’s Roman Kuss in Austria’s Kronen Zeiting Kärnten. Congratulations, Roman!

After going home to Park City for 5 days over Xmas, I thought I was going to get some productive training in Soelden to prep for Adelboden and the rest of January. No such “luck”, it snowed a ton in the days before I got there and while we were there making training useless. No complaints though instead we skied epic powder, might not be the best for race prep but after seeing no snow in PC it was nice to use the fat boards and have some fun. The fun continued after the race in Adelboden which as it turns out is an awesome mountain, they just don’t like it when you ski in the trees. Opps. Below is some of the fun taken from my GoPro.

Ted loves to Shred. He's an Olympic Gold Medalist and World Champion ski racer, all-mountain ripper and loves to push his body's limits.

This shot comes to us from Hintertux, Austria. Hope the dudes wrist is OK.
