Who I Pictured in my Mind When I Wrote Pet

This is the latest from Jean-Baptiste Chandelier. The video has some sick Acro in it. Check out the helicopter at 2:22, low altitude endless flips (near Mont Blanc Massif), and, near the end, a SAT par excellence over some impressive white.

There are aspects of this guy’s public image that I held close in my mind when I was writing Petrus Mandel in “The Big Red Buckle“. He is a real artist in the air and seems to have a fun-loving attitude that, while not unique in the sport, is outstanding because of its intensity.
