New web series “Drop In” follows Simon Dumont on the road to Sochi

January 16th, 2013 by

Simon Dumont’s new web-series, Drop In, launched today. Over the coming months the series will follow Simon as he attempts to qualify for the men’s halfpipe event at the 2014 Sochi Games. Simon recently rebounded from a knee injury, only to hurt his wrist while training for the Winter Dew Tour in Breckenridge. Mere weeks after undergoing wrist surgery, Simon was back at it this past weekend, competing at the US Grand Prix at Copper. This first webisode showcases Simon skiing for the first time following his knee rehabilitation, yet prior to his injury at Dew Tour.

From NetworkA on YouTube:

“On the comeback from a season-ending knee injury, seven-time X Games medalist Simon Dumont is back on his skis and powering ahead toward the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. With contest season gearing up, Simon warms up in Keystone, Colorado’s terrain park and Copper Mountain, Colorado’s 22-foot superpipe. Simon wastes no time throwing huge airs and spins in the pipe, shaking off slams, and ending the session with his signature switch double cork. With freeskiing’s debut in the 2014 Winter Olympics on the horizon, all eyes are on Simon. Follow along on Drop In.”
