What Makes the Mt. Baker Banked Slalom so Legendary?

What makes the the Mt. Baker Banked Slalom Legendary?  Good question.  It’s not just one thing, that’s for sure.  It’s gotta be the culmination of the course, the contest, the riders, and the duct tape trophy.  Burton posed the questions to a few of this years participants. Check the video to see their responses and to see some footage of Terje ripping the gates.
