Westcott gets GOLD!!!

Mens Snowboard Cross

I will always be a skater at heart, and by default I find snowboarding fascinating although I have yet to ever actually step on a snowboard (or skis for that matter)

But watching the Snowboard Cross event this weekend was insane, it was one thing to watch the qualifying rounds when these guys were riding alone , but when last nights races took place it was on!

American Seth Westcott took home the gold with an amazing come from behind win that was just awesome. For a sport I have never actually watched (snowboard racing) I was hooked immediately. Westcott took over Canadian Mike Robertson just as they approached the finish and took it home. Great great race!!

USA Wins!
