red bull line catcher. J-2

 

 

 

l’opinion du chris booth sur l’avenir du monde dans sa langue maternelle

15.01.2011

 

« I don’t know if its the factories in China, the Moroccan wind, or just post-industrial revolution fallout, but something is happening in the alps this winter. It gets cold, snows, then turns warm. then repeats.

A true skier can make the best out of any conditions though, or so i am told. So if this mild, temperature, almost humid weather perpetuates itself, it will be a true skier who wins the Red Bull Linecatcher early next week.

Or maybe a true euro skier.

As true euro skiers in training Anthony Boronowski et moi took to the slopes today.

n’essaye pas ça dans ta maison # 32

pilote : yorgo tloupas. le skieur chutant : julien regnier

Par yorgo en langue anglaise. Bon allez c’est facile à comprendre ça parle automobile et testostérone :

Last week I hinted at an upcoming stunt using the Nissan 370z we have fitted with Pirelli Sottozero snow tires. Here is the fruit of an afternoon of work with Julien Regnier and Elina Sirparanta.

It was harder than I thought it would be. We found a car park, not really long enough but manageable, then built a small kicker, and prepared a vague reception. Pulling Julien was easy, drifting between the kicker and the landing was easy, jumping high enough was (very) easy for Julien. It became harder when we had to do all of this together, and I had trouble drifting properly, as seen in the video. In the end we had a good chance to test the strength of black crows skis and of Nissan bodywork…

London ‘shocked’ by snow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

it is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a departing flight

06.01.2011

 

On my continuing unplanned vacation in London I have learnt that the English love talking about two things: closed airports and Warnie. They love talking about these things so much that one could be lead to believe that there is nothing else going on anywhere. But while Warnie’s high profile escapades are fleeting at best, the airports have remained closed for several days. A wintery tempest of (almost) Shakesperian proportion has descended upon London, causing the city to grind to a screeching halt. Roads closed, airports closed, trains cancelled, even the underground (which is… underground) is delayed. The BBC and Sky News have aired images of hundreds of people sleeping under safety blankets at Gatwick and Heathrow airports over 2, 3 or even 4 nights. Qeues measuring in excess of a city block have been reported at London’s St Pancras train station while hopeful passengers wait in the -9 degree cold. This deprivation and misery has been a feast for the media meanwhile, with the phrases ‘third world’ and ‘refugee camp’ being thrown about like snowballs in Hyde Park.

What’s more, it hasn’t snowed in days. The casual bystander could be excused for wondering, then, what in the Queen’s good name is going on? Even London’s mayor Boris Johnson, who I suspect could be my father, was quoted as saying, « It can’t be beyond the wit of man surely to . . . get the planes moving and to have more than one runway going. »

Indeed, the extraordinary disruption to infrastructure caused by a mere 12cm of snow challenges logic for a city set to host the next olympics.

The problem is that Londoners are, at best, completely allergic to snow. In my 5 days here I have not seen a single road clearer, bulldozer, or a shovel for that matter. And as officials continue to squabble over whose responsibility it is to get things moving again, families wait in departure halls, train stations and airport hotels, hoping to make it to their destinations in time for Christmas.

There is consolation for some though, as children build snowmen and toboggan in the city’s many spectacular parks, now transformed into winter wonderlands.
