If we were playing European-experiences Bingo, I would totally be winning. In my three days so far in France, I've eaten cheese fondue, hung out in a sauna with a few Euro guys in Speedos, and following the instructions of a French mountain guide, down-climbed a rope as thick as dental floss over a rocky entrance into a powder-filled bowl.
But enough about me. The real reason I'm here in France is to cover the second Winter X Games Europe, which starts Wednesday afternoon with men's Superpipe elimination and continues through Friday night (check out the complete competition schedule).
If you're losing at European Bingo and watching from home, you can tune in live online at ESPN3.com or watch on your TV on ESPN and ESPN2. And of course, you can find daily videos and recaps from this week's event at the Winter X Europe homepage. For the latest news and interviews, be sure to check out the X Games blog. And for a glimpse of what's coming this week, check out our Watch to Watch For, our Kevin Rolland profile, and John Symms' ski Slopestyle predictions.
That should keep you busy for you awhile. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some brie and baguettes waiting for me.
