Burton European Open
So I cruised out to Mayrhofen last week and spent a few days there cruising and getting back on my board! I headed over to the BEO in the GB van with India Stephenson and Pilot Mr Billy Morgan.
The BEO was an epic time,
cruising summer style. No hat... no gloves... (p) Susie Floros
the course was perfect, besides a few issues with speed however, I could deal with that as the weather was just perfect, it felt like full on summer up the mountain.
The girls, loving LAAX. Silvia Mittermuller , KJ, Me, Lisa Wiik, + Possum Torr
The new best way to warm up for a slopestyle contest. Race each other down the boarder X track!
Really fun practice session with the GB boiz, Jamie Nicholls + Ben Kilner
So.......Semi's went down on Wednesday, my first run I fell on my backside rodeo, and my 2nd run I put down a clean run, backflip, straight air, back 3 into back rodeo...... however it wasn't quite enough to put me through to finals. That run put me in the 7th spot and the final 2 riders dropped, Silje Norendal and Sina Candrian and put there runs down which bumped me into 9th place. The standard with insane, I was really bummed not to be riding in the finals, but it has just given me more motivation to step up my safety run, so bring on the next contest!
Here is my 2nd run for you to view here :)

After I got bumped from the finals I joined Henry Jackson and T-Bird in the live stream box, for the webcast on Redbull TV! first time in there and it was super fun! Commentating the mens semi finals and girls Slope finals yesterday!

The Home run, end of the day, SUN + Slush with Possum Torr
Thanks to Burton for such an awesome event, they really treat the riders well, putting us up in such nice accommodation and providing us food tokens all week!
and to my TM Lesley Mckenna, for the magic powder wax! She knows her stuff, I went from knuckling all the jumps to being able to make the sweet spot, so big shout out to the boss for being on hand all week :)
