Vic says a good alpine race should be tight head-to-head racing that shows, consistency, power, and finesse - that's why he's one of the hottest up-and-coming speed riders out there, but confesses to be "pretty good” at baseball and football too.
It was a season of super solid racing for Wild who hit a high mark in his World Cup career by breaking through the top 20. But, for Wild, his success lied in the NorAm cups where he was on the podium in five races - two of which were wins - and he was in the top 10 of 10 events. Wild wrapped things up strong with a second place spot on the podium of Austrian National Championships.
Vic became interested in snow sports thanks to famous skier and hero Herman Maier, but it was snowboarding that won. So he began rocking a Burton Cruise 135 at age 7 at Mt. Hood Meadows.
