Rice takes first in Supernatural

After a day of great weather and great snow the winner of the Red Bull Supernatural was announced.

This picture was captured by Baldface Lodge as Scotty Lago dropped into custom course.

The weather couldn’t have been better yesterday at Baldface Lodge as 18 of the world’s best snowboarders competed in the Red Bull Supernatural.

It was signature series designer Travis Rice who took home first place, followed by Gigi Ruff and Nicolas Muller.

American television network NBC Sports is a sponsor of the Red Bull Signature Series that kicked off last month. The series will feature a number of adventure sports like mountain biking, freestyle motocross, ice cross downhill and BMX. The idea behind the series is to bring viewers “custom courses from the inspiration of the athletes themselves.” Rice is the designer of the Baldface course that snowboarders will tackle this weekend.

The Supernatural stop of the Signature Series is going to be broadcast by NBC on March 31 as part of a tw0-hour special.
