DC Team Nominated For TWS Awards
By Press Release DC
VISTA, CACongratulations to DC Co-founder Ken Block and snow team riders Torstein Horgmo, Eddie Wall, and Jonas Carlson on their nominations for the upcoming 9th Annual Transworld SNOWboarding Riders' Poll Awards for the "Stand Out Performance of the Year" category.
Ken Block and Eddie Wall give new defintion to the term "road gap."
If you haven't had a chance to see DC's snowboarding video, MTN.LAB 1.5, the nominated four were all involved in the epic final session featuring Block (in his Subaru rally car) who successfully jumped his car over 70 feet with DC team riders jumping beside him at Snow Park Resort in New Zealand. See the amazing snowboarding and rally session now on DC's website at dcshoes.com/snow.
Also, make sure to check out the site for behind the scenes footage from the session that earned them the nomination, as well as the new photo gallery. The website is a great add-on to the footage seen in the last part of MTN.LAB 1.5, and is loaded with a large photo gallery plus an assortment of video clips, including two that DC edited especially for this section.
The two new clips present a behind the scenes look at how the whole day went down. One clip is a complete look at the details of the unprecedented three-day shoot, and includes a few clips that didn't make the movie's final cut. The second clip covers Block's massive rally car jump at the very end of the movie...what went wrong, how he broke his back, and more.
Users can also view two other pieces of video that came straight from MTN.LAB 1.5 to include the mind-blowing ending part for your viewing pleasure. Check it to see some of what the MTN.LAB 1.5 buzz is about. The last clip is from the DVD's bonus section featuring a downright silly Eddie Wall trick tip that shows him teaching 540s.
