Unofficial Photos-Telluride World Cup Snowboardcross Finals

By

As I posted earlier this week, today was the US Snowboardcross World Cup finals for both the Men and Women. This was a great event to watch, with the best riders from around the world going head to head on an amazing course on Misty Maiden! Some of the top names were 2X Olympic SBX Champion Seth Wescott,

World Cup Champion and 6 Time X Games Gold Medalist Nate Holland, 9x X Games Champion and snowboarding bad-ass Shaun Palmer, 2002 Olympic Halfpipe Champion and snowboard legend Ross Powers, and 6x X Games Gold Medalist Lindsey Jacobelis. And this was just the US team! The conditions went from blue-bird to flurries during the comp and was really an amazing event to watch! Enjoy some photos I took at the event.
