Chris Del Bosco Wins Winter X Games SkierX 3

Chris Del Bosco, former pro MTB downhiller just won Skier X at the Winter X Games. HECK YES DIRTY DEL! Way to go.

Road tripping the East Coast with Del Bosco and the Big Crank guys in 2005 provided one of the best memories of my career...here's the gist of the story...

After a long day on the road, we stopped at a gas station to fill up and get refreshments. Del, who couldn't wait to get some beer, gets two 40oz beers and walks out of the store. He has a 40oz in a paper sack in each hand. He raises his arms, as if victorious with his purchase, when simultaneously, the bottoms of both paper sacks rip open and the two 40's crash to the ground in an explosion of glass and foam. Del, in disbelief, looks at all of us by the truck with sad puppy eyes and we just erupt with laughter. EPIC. If only we had a photo...

    That was a great roadtrip, I can't believe Chris is a traitor and skiing for Canada though. Un-American!

    @bloghogs - They used to do that 10+ years back, except on full DH bikes. One of my fav bike memories was watching Lars Tribus quali 1st at Winter X 2000 at Mount Snow. That weekend was nuts.
