Stop #2 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter And Rail Jam fell into a deep freeze at Mont St. Bruno, Quebec for some smoking hot riding on Saturday January 17, 2015.
With rolled up snow pants, skate helmet, open windbreaker and hooded sweatshirt the Montreal locals have a style all their own. It’s hard for an outsider to fully comprehend the sheer frigid temperatures of this day and the fashion over function mind set. Canadian blood must be thick because most moms say they were underdressed for the occasion. Or maybe the fire of their maneuvers is how these shredders fend off the frostbite. Either way, these guys and gals were getting after it!
Today’s Parks, headed by front man Guillaume Fournier, built a contest set up that was on point for everyone. It featured a elevated lift tower that extended into a diving board exit, a flat box to flat rail combo middle section, and a pole jam to down flat down tube that added some flavor to this fan favorite feature. Everyone was charging the obstacles with his or her own little twist and spin as practice ended and the riders meeting was called. Competitors got the full breakdown and order of operations as their teeth chattered and eyelashes began to crystalize. At this point all were ready to warm their blood as they hiked to the top to get ready to provide some red-hot jib action.
- David Tourngny turned heads the entire day. This 13-year-old kid manhandled any and all features in his path. David throws a combo with a boardslide on the box, 50-50 across the rail, and finishes with seamless fs 360 out. Not only did he capture the 15 & Under win, David also took home the $100 Rev’d Rider award with a look of surprise and excitement on his face.
- Cédrick Lessard is a true snowboarder's snowboarder. She rides with style and finesse as she pulls a beautiful nose blunted lipslide in zone 1. She also gapped the DFD with a lipslide that had the guys wiping the frost from their eyes. It’s no wonder why she found herself atop of the Girls division.
- Gabriel Jacques blasting a gap bs 270 lipslide in zone 3. The landing was pure ice by this time and big tricks like this one had serious consequences. He also landed sw fs board slide through the entire down-flat-down to show that he had both tech and gnar in his wheelhouse. Needless to say, Gabriel was the overall winner in the Open/Am Division.
