World Heli Challenge Day 3: Chinese Downhill

World Heli Challenge Day 3: Chinese Downhill

Sept. 5, Wanaka, New Zealand – Another perfect day yesterday greeted the World Heli Challenge crew. The “VnC Cocktail Downhill” was nothing short of an epic adventure for all — in many ways.

The event itself was as hard core as snow sports get. The goal is to find out who in the event was the fastest person on snow. Athletes raced head to head at mind boggling speeds. No rules, no regulations, just pure focus and adrenaline.

The top results of the VnC Cocktail Downhill are:

Ski Men:
1) Ted Davenport
2) Geoff Small
3) Geoff Vince

Ski Women:
1) Jackie Passo
2) Janina Kuzma
3) Ingrid Backstrom

Full overall results available soon

The finish of the race was just the kick off to a crazy afternoon of fun, adventure and lifestyle. The VnC Ice Bar served frozen cocktails as athletes sessioned a windlip, throwing down an array of single, double and even triple flips! But that wasn’t all! The athletes had no idea that when they were flown off the mountain they would land on the Makarora river to awaiting Wilkin River Jets and jet boated back to the heli base.

More photos, video clips and stories will be posted at WorldHeliChallenge.com, so stay tuned!
