Gearboxx Thunderstruck 12 film review

The first to arrive on my desk this season and the first to be reviewed, Thunderstruck 12 is the latest installment in Jim Phelan’s series of extreme sledding flicks.

For 12 years running, the TS crew have pushed the limits of backcountry sledding with their high-horsepower machines and audacious attitudes. After every film, I have been left wondering: how will they possibly be able to top this again for next year? But they do, and lucky for us, Phelan’s always got the camera rolling.
