Yeah, not sure what happened, but I do remember Terje railing on snowboarding becoming an Olympic sport.

It has to do with the governing bodies that control the qualifications process/contests.

probably this from a week or so ago. not much substance yet, just the ongoing question of whether contrived FIS events should take precedence over established snowboarding events like Winter X, etc. Of course, to FIS, the FIS events take precedence.

Yeah, good article.

I think dates for the next couple years have been released behind the scenes, and I bet there are major conflicts.

fuck the FIS ,is really what the "Terje is Right" sticker on ebay from seven years winter should say. ( i bought one).

Terje's always right. That's why I ride a T7. Not sure what I'm going to do now that I hear he's working on wacked powder boards...
