British snowboarder Jamie Barrow has been testing out snowboarding at some serious speeds with Electric Jet Engines developed by Adam at Dreamscience. Here is the full video of what happened when they took them out to St Moritz, Switzerland for some speed runs. The team cracked 80km on a flat Lake, not bad at all.
About Jamie Barrow:
Hello! My name is Jamie Barrow. I am age 21 and was on the British Snowboard Cross Team since age 15, competing on the FIS and Europa Cup circuit since I was 16. I was British Youth Snowboard Cross Champion 2008, and I have been British Junior Snowboard Cross Champion in 2009, 2010 and 2011. In 2011 I also won the British Universities Indoor Snowboard Championships. In 2010 I was Bank Santander / Bath University Sportsman Fresher of the Year and in 2012 i graduated from the University of Bath with a B.Sc. in Sports Performance. I am a Sky Sports Living For Sport Athlete Mentor, working with Youth Sport Trust. I make regular public appearances, speeches and presentations to adult and student groups. In January 2013 i unfortunately had a serious injury which resulted in me having to drop out the british team. Not wanting to give up even though my injury could not be fixed i still wanted to push myself as much as i can and I recently became Britain’s Fastest Snowboarder by reaching a speed of 151.6kph (94.2mph). I will keep pushing myself as much as i can and i am already planning more speed records and even to attempt to break the 100mph barrier.
