Did you know we have an X-Gamer in our midst?

Steve Utgaard, who works on the LivInn Maplewood crew, was in the X games at the end of January!  He was part of the second ever Unified Snowboard race that pairs a professional X Game racer with one that is part of Special Olympics for a side-by-side Giant Slalom race. Steve was paired with Josh Kerr, from Australia. Their combined time was 48.9!  The races were even on ESPN and ABC nation wide!  How great is that?!?!?

Scroll for  some photos from the weekend!
