Failure to Communicate


Daniel Bodin speaks at least two languages (Swedish and English) and he's fluent in at least two freestyle disciplines (sleds and dirtbikes). Recently, touring with Red Bull X-Fighters, he's been going large in Ukraine, Spain, Russia, Kazakhstan and Belgium.

Still, even for a guy with Bodin's worldly acumen, communication can be a challenge. And so it was one day last winter in Utah—leading to a near-miss of epic proportions. We stumbled across this video and, while we don't speak Swedish, skipping ahead to 1:46 for Bodin's high-speed in-run to a jump, sprechen sie Swedish or not, you'll begin to get the picture. Sköl!
