Two-Time Olympic Gold Medalist Shaun White and All-Star Cast Rip Powder in “Red Bull Big in Japan” On FUEL TV Monday, July 5, 2010 at 8:00pm ET/PT


Los Angeles, CA (July 5, 2010) — Airing Monday, July 5, at 8:00pm Eastern Time (5:00pm Pacific Time) and telecast several additional times, FUEL TV will showcase the exciting “Red Bull Big in Japan.”

Known throughout the snowboard world as a powder mecca, Japan’s north island of Hokkaido is a place where snowboarders go not just to get the shot, but to get the face shots as well. It’s a transformation from all things Western to a culture and a lifestyle that has been in existence for more than 10,000 years. And when you take this caliber of riders: Pat Moore, Heikki Sorsa, two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Shaun White and Zach Leach, and bring them out of their elements in “Big in Japan” you begin to learn more about them as people – and as friends.
