Default I have a whole new respect for Scotty Lago!!

It is not everyday that you see a pipe jock go out and get 3rd place in a big mountain contest. Props to him for killing it in the Olympics, then turning around and killing in the back country. Not to say there is not others. You rarely see Olympic athletes pulling this off...

To further shut up all the haters out there, did Lago do those runs in his Flows?


Disclaimer: I don't ride Flows (used my brother's 4ish years ago), but I do like them. Considering for a future binding purchase.

For the record, he grew up riding the East Coast. Just goes to show that you don't have to live out west to be able to kill big mountains. Props to him

Some say Travis is the best rider in the world. But is Travis hitting the pipe like Lago?

Def impressed with Lago..... Kicks ass in the Olympics and in the BC.

I love to watch the Rice show, but Lago may have him as far as being a well rounded rider.

Are you talking about The First Descent? Pretty crappy movie in my opinion.
