The small town of Vail gets a bit of a shake up when Teva turns up in town, and this year was no exception. Shipping in the world's most acclaimed action sports athletes to hold one of the world's biggest multi-disciplinary action sports events going, Teva didn't hold out on this one. Teva sent myself out to the games to capture the awesomeness and excitement in still and motion picture form to show you guys and gals at home what makes this event so "daaamn" amazing!
I won't bore you guys with introductions and pussy footing around - let's just get straight into the action...BAM!Teva Mountain Games Slopestyle 2012
Hope you guys are now stoked! Hit it with a mega mash-up of still action madness!
Vail Valley prepare for this.
| Spot of lunch before practice|
This is Pilgrim? (not sure it has the same ring to it as Peaty but what the hell)
We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to partake in a little session the day before practice.
Practice and Qualifying went down like a storm with pretty much everyone pulling out all the stops to make the finals. A few big names missed out this time with some silly bails and mistakes, but it's all chill, just go grab a beer and chillax in the sun!
Then rolling straight on into the finals, big crowds, big tricks, and DJ Juggy on the decks throwing down the tunes. There was a big hype atmosphere going on which got the riders going. Stoked smiles all round and you were a pretty much a sore loser if you weren't having fun.
