“Forget marginal gains: Radical Gains is the fascinating story, full of stoke and snowsports, of GB Park and Pipe.
With more than 180 images from across the globe, and contributions from the best writers and photographers in the action sports industry, it charts the rise of Great Britain’s freeski and freestyle snowboarding team.
From the early days of British skiing and snowboarding, to the celebratory events of Sochi and PyeongChang, Radical Gains reveals how GB Park and Pipe became one of the most respected snowsports teams to date.”
Pick up a copy of this book and it will change your whole perspective on a country, and sport, that nobody would have married up somewhat 10 years ago. Most punters probably wouldn't have even set foot on a pair of skis or a board in the UK until the present crop of snowdomes appeared. What's fascinating though, is that the UK's history in snowsports doesn't really span back too far (about 30 years), and even then it was only a minority who chose to hit Dendix in places like Rossendale and Halifax.
Fast forward to today, British Skiing and Snowboarding is absolutely on the map! Depicted perfectly in this book by the likes of Mike Weyerhaeuser, Matt Georges, Tommy Pyatt, Nick Atkins, Dan Milner, Natalie Mayer, James McPhail, James North, Sam Mellish and more.
