There’s a strong debate going on in the shoutbox about the upcoming Australian Olympic Snowboard Team announcement. One person that shouldn’t have to worry is Holly Crawford who placed third at last weekends Mammoth Grand Prix. Her opening hit was a big 900! That puts Holly second in the world for half pipe. Between Holly and Torah, the Australia women are holding it down.

As for the men, well if you haven’t already watched the runs of the top three mens, it might pay to over at Transworld. The state of snowboarding is out of control. Danny Davis won with a ridiculous run of cab double cork cab ten, frontside nine, crail backside air, double cork frontside ten, switch double backside rodeo. That last trick has to be seen to be believed. Shuan White got second and all-rounded Scotty got third.
