Starts in 3 days.

Webpage https://www.lausanne2020.sport/en and there’s also an app.

There’s a number of Jindy kids competing that I’ve been watching at interschools since div 5 and I’m really excited to watch them and cheer them on.

Hopefully live streamed on the app, not sure if any of our non snow media will pick it up.

Ah missed this thread . Would have loved to be there and passed through Geneva on Opening day but had to make a Paris flight home . So close. Tickets booked before nieces selection . Watching on the app .

Think I’ve worked out who your niece is :) Such an exciting experience for them. And I’m loving watching kids who I’ve known either personally or from being on the sidelines, since primary school.

Such a nice kid. 2022 Olympics?

And until a couple of weeks ago, she hadn’t been on snow since the end of our season.

Is there any video of these?

I love seeing snowboard cross races, but sadly it's ridiculously difficult finding any decent footage online.

At least the Red Bull Crashed Ice series goes someway towards scratching the itch.

If you google Josie Baff, there’s a few. The Olympic channel has the 0.05sec finish. There’s some on her parents FB but I won’t share them ;) Though they’re not private.

Yeah its kinda weird, Ski/SnBrd Cross is probably the most made for TV event on the snow, yet they didn't show it live.

You could catch finals in the daily highlights. olympicchannel.com

Unfortunately I think Finn crashed last night in the mixed M/F event so they didn't progress. They guy is a bit of a god on snow, I'm pretty sure at one nationals a couple of years ago, he won all of the Ski and Snowboard races.

Yes @chicski ski Josie is proof you don't need to spend 300 days a year on the snow, like some parents think :)
