Winter X Games in Tignes, Mar 2010
Only a week to go before the ‘Winter X Games’ arrive in Tignes in France!
For the first time ever, this spectacular extreme sports competition from the US is landing on European slopes, and where better than Tignes to host this flagship event?
Can Brit snowboard sensation, Jenny Jones, defend her Gold Medal this year in the Slopestyle event, to make it two years in a row for the only British rider ever to win the event? Jenny is pretty much flying the flag alone for the UK, so certainly deserves our whole-hearted support!
Read the full story on www.extreme.com, where you can also watch all the action LIVE online. The programme runs from the 10th-12th March 2010. The groundwork for the Superpipe for the event was constructed way back in August, to match the spectacular set-up in the X Games’ home in Aspen, and with the snow across teh french Alps in great condition right now, will be completed this week ready for the games.
