Forget marginal gains: Radical Gains is the fascinating story, full of stoke and snowports, 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.
Packed with over 180 pages of high octane ski and snowboard photography from the UK to Russia, Iran to Japan, this is a must for anyone with an interest in snow sports and action sports alike. Within the ﬁrst few pages, the book begins with nods to the dry slope scene, with images of a young Jamie Nicholls and James Woods as they thrash it out on snow ﬂex and dendix. There are fantastic archival images of Jenny Jones as she celebrates Britain’s ﬁrst ever Olympic medal on snow - a moment that brought tears to many of the snowboarding community. The book also includes Billy Morgans groundbreaking ﬁrst ever quad cork in Italy and his righteous Big Air glory in Pyeongchang, as well as Izzy Atkin claiming women’s free-ski slopestyle bronze - the ﬁrst ever British woman to win an Olympic ski medal.
