Another sporting landmark this week was the start of the NBA playoffs – J.R. Smith of the NY Knicks with a dunk of extreme athletic proportions!

Last week the Revolution team hit the slopes for the BRITS, a week long snowsports festival in the French ski resort of Tignes, celebrating all that is great about British Snowsports! The main attraction was the competitions with a mixture of pro and amateur, local and UK riders competing in a range of skiing and snowboarding disciplines. What we found interesting was the host of brands present as Dare2b, Trespass, Extreme and Whitelines Mag all sponsored events. The standard of UK riders, together with the strength of brands on show, outlines how the UK Snowsports industry has never been better!
Start of the ski cross competition!
The festival saw some cracking conditions!
and a lot of Easter snow!
