We've been trying to make something happen here for a while now. We were here back in December when Ryan broke his tailbone. Then during the early February we came back again. That time we were beaten to the punch by another crew... of sledders. This time it was a little bit of a different vibe, our crew consisted of Will Drescher, Sarah Bergman, O2 team manager Nick Rainer, Mikey Altobelli, myself and Sarah's boyfriend Travis, who is one of my favorite people of all time.
The first setup was this little fence gap. We skipped this one in the past, but after failing to come away with anything last time, this seemed like a good bet. Right after we got a little wedge build and the inrun packed, a police car rolled in to the parking lot. Sarah doesn't get the shoot with us often and I believe the exact words out of her mouth were "You've got to be kidding me". The cops were cool and gave us the thumbs up to keep riding.
I should also mention that this was the first time that Sarah ever used the bungee. Pretty impressive and both she and Will got makes on the gap.
Of course, it's not all rainbows and unicorns. Both of them slammed on the fence as well.
Across the parking lot, was this setup. We shot this last last weekend with no luck.
On this occasion, Nick strapped it on to get the shot. You can't tell here but he slammed hard a few times before nailing this banger.
