WHAT WE LEARNED AT DC SHRED DAYS, PLUS THE OFFICIAL EDIT

We were invited out to DC Shred Days in Meribel, France last week, where members of the public got the chance to shred with pros – that’s the official edit of the event above, which for some strange reason we seem to have been left out of in favour of, like, good DC riders. We learned a lot while out there though:

  • Blood looks awesome on snow. Properly Viking-style awesome. Even when it’s your own blood, you can appreciate how rad it looks.
  • You get pissed a lot quicker at high altitudes (well, that’s our story and we’re sticking to it).
  • French people genuinely do use the phrase “les rosbifs” to take the piss out of the British. We’d always assumed that was bollocks.
  • In France you can buy a one-litre can of 10% abv beer in a shop for €4. The only catch? It’s fucking disgusting!
  • Snowboarding uses muscles no other activity even touches. Snowboarding badly does, anyway. There’s no knackered like Alps knackered.
  • If you dislocate your finger and pop it back in yourself, it balloons to an enormous size and fills with some kind of fluid. That’s probably a really healthy sign, right?
