My name is Richard Johnson, born and raised on the west coast of NL here in Corner Brook. Been on sleds for longer than I can remember, and cannot live without them… it is my absolute favourite past time. I work in the construction industry which can be a gift or a curse depending on if your rotation falls on some prime ride time or bad bouts of weather.
I am one of the riders of a local group called Whiteout Films which is a group of friends who film some riding throughout the season in an attempt to produce a high quality sled film to showcase just how great this sport is in our province. We have received a tremendous amount of support from locals and as far as Idaho with Motorfist. This support continues to grow with us which fuels our drive to push our envelopes to become better riders, but to also do all we can to support the system and help out where we can.
I have only wrote one article for Sledworthy which happened to be an overview of this film group, it was something that has always had my interest in trying as I have read many SW articles over the years in front of the fire at the cabin after spending all day shredding some powder.
