Snowboarding!

This week I have been tuning in to the Winter Olympics at Vancouver, especially the snowboard cross. What an awesome sport! Its fast and dangerous and nearly every race has a spectacular crash. Snowboard cross courses are quite narrow and includes cambered turns, gap jumps, berms, drops, and steep and flat sections designed to challenge the riders' ability to stay in control.
Check out the Youtube clip, its awesome.






Then Tora Bright won Gold in the half pipe.
She overcame four Americans, three concussions, a dislocated jaw and a failed first run to become Australia’s first Winter Olympic gold medallist in 2010.

There's heaps of books in the Library that teach you all about snow sports. Check out Snowboarding by Clive Gifford. It teaches you how to snowboard like a professional! Filled with everything you need to know from equipment, techniques, simple tricks and info on some famous snowboarders you'll be ready to hit the slopes in Winter!
