If you missed the U.S. Halfpipe Grand Prix on NBC, we got you covered with a handful of videos from the event.
Dan Brisse has completely changed the game of urban snowboarding conquering the heaviest rail and gap setups around with a calculated and precise approach. Brisse's "Always down" mentality resonates well with the rest of the Absinthe Films shred crew including Travis Rice, JP Solberg, Bode Merrill, and Nicolas Muller. There is nothing better than having a guy pumped to shovel jumps all day only to be equally excited to hit them!
The last and final jump in Kings Crown, 81 feet from lip to knuckle.
The step rail is brand new this season at Park City, currently set up at the top of Kings Crown.
The fourth episode of the I Ride Park City series features Alex Rodway, Ben Bogart, Harrison Gordon, Mac Spedale, Zak Hale, Dylan Thompson, Alex Sherman and Bode Merrill sessioning the 3 Kings run as well as the new Merrill Mini Pipe.
One of the most prolific well-rounded riders apparent from his parts with Absinthe Films, his X Games Real Snow video parts, to hammers in the streets. Just listen to Travis Rice, JP Solberg and Romain de Marchi describing Bode's style and raw talent. Dan Brisse sums Bode up in describing his backside double-cork 1080 he threw down first try in Absinthe's Neverland.
