Icer Air Show

I just ended my 830 mile 10 day bike tour, the finish being San Francisco. Conveniently there were some events going on the day after I showed up.  Red Bull was putting on a soap box derby and Icer Air was having their annual snow contest. Unfortunately they were at the same time. I really wanted to see the derby, but a couple friends were attending the contest so I felt obligated to check Icer Air out.  It was being held in a different spot than the past couple years of inside the baseball stadium. It was next door in the parking lot. The snow contest was very interesting. The riders felt the same. It was a hip with a sling shot cable tow in, real dicey. They decided to split the prize money between everybody. Everybody already felt like a winner since they all received an appearance fee just for riding.  I wasn’t there as a photographer, but I had my little point n’ shoot camera and got a few shots.

 Hampus Mosesson wasn’t as excited as the skiers were.

Skiers fashion is to snowboarding, as rollerbladers are to skateboarding. They try to bite their style, but fail miserably. No offense to them, it’s just a fact.

 These guys definitely stole the crowd’s excitement from the snow show.
