The 2015 Volcom Kitzsteinhorn Banked Slalom is a wrap!

What a weekend we just experienced! Smiles for miles, sunburned noses, egos’s bruised & boosted and then waking up with the worst hangover of the year.
Words hardly do all the good times justice. So why not let the photos tell the story instead?
See you all in 2016 for the 3rd version.

Congrats to Tadej Valentan for taking top honors and winning the Mt. Baker Banked Slalom starting spot. Good times at prize giving. Arthur Longo in 2nd and Michael David in 3rd.

Towards the end of the course, your legs are bleeding and your heart is pounding. But the roar from the crowd gives you the extra energy needed to stay tucked down low until the finish line.
