John and Eric Jackson, in conjunction with Red Bull Media, recently released the first episode of “Brothers on the Run.” This web series chronicles the adventures and misadventures of the pro snowboarders as they embark on a 15,000-mile road trip from Alaska to Chile. The brothers are among the world’s best backcountry riders, ensuring that this series will be chock full of breathtaking big mountain bangers.
The first episode explores the plans leading up to the adventure. After a burly crash in Alaska, John learns he’s fractured two ribs and part of his spine before the trip even begins. After receiving reassuring news from his neurological spine surgeon, John is given the go-ahead and joins Eric to embark on their journey. Once the brothers land in Alaska, they meet with Travis Rice and kick off the adventure with a slew of Alaskan fun– shooting guns, fishing in freezing waters, and of course, shredding steep peaks.
Upon the release of the first episode, Eric Jackson posted this picture from the excursion and said, “You know when you have a day where everything goes right and nothing could bring you down? Well, today was one of those days! @Johnnjamun high on life in #Alaska #BrothersontheRun.
Episodes will premiere every other Tuesday throughout the summer. Check out Episode 1:
