Supernatural previewed on the Today Show
By now you've probably heard about the mother of all freestyle backcountry snowboard contests, pulled straight from the crazy, imaginative mind of Travis Rice: the Red Bull Supernatural. Well now you can check aerial video footage of the venue, courtesy of a segment aired on the Today Show this morning previewing the event.
Due to the widespread lack of early-season snow, many of the contests Rice had planned on using as seeding events to determine wildcard entries were unfortunately cancelled. There are, however, still two wildcard spots, and it has just been confirmed that the leader on the TTR World Tour slopestyle points list, Canadian wonder Mark McMorris, will be getting one of them. The second slot will be going to whoever wins the slopestyle event at the Winter X Games on Sunday. Nail biter! Stay tuned!
