Good and bad news from this weekend for rail-slayer and British favourite Andy Nudds; he took part in the Frostgun Invitational in Val d’Isere, one of the the first snowboarders to do so at this traditionally ski-only event.
He absolutely slayed it in the rail jam event called ‘Street Fighter’ (awesome name) as the video above shows, taking first place complete with his trademark careless steeze.
He then went on the compete in the big air event on what can only be described as a behemoth of a kicker. He came up very short as you can see below, blowing out his ACL in the process.
Luckily he’d apparently already put down enough on his first two runs to bag himself third place, and he did avoid the ‘chasm of death’ so it wasn’t all bad. The good news is that hopefully he won’t be out of snowboarding for very long. We’re stoked for you Andy and can’t wait to see you ripping again!
