After Idaho, we booted it back to Colorado for the Dew Tour, to arrive in the coldest conditions of the season so far, rumors had it that on the first practice day it was -20... first day of practice was pretty much a right off, gale force winds, the elements weren't on our side. So I went up to scope out the course with Jamie Nicholls, fellow Brit and then chill after the 12 hour roadie from Idaho.
Semi finals day it was premo, I had a really great practice and was feeling the flow of the course, I don't think I have ever ridden such a long, big and fun flowing course, well done to Breck and the Dew Tour for putting such a good course together. LOVED IT :)
Here is a little clip . I trick II flips from practice!
Come the time of semi's after having a break and then dropping in for my first run I'd misjudged the speed slightly... over amped on my second jump and over rotated a double, at the time I was really hyped to get back up the top for my second run, but when It came to my turn to drop, my shoulder seized up and I had to pull out, totally gutted, but hey it's all part of the game, and it should be good for 2 weeks time, so bring on the next one.
Big props to the winning ladies, Jamie Anderson took the top spot, followed by Spencer O'Brien and Enni Rukajarvi.
Working on that pout for Roxy's next top model / rider with Kjersti B.

The day before I flew home I spent the day filming with Cheryl Maas and Johnny Roderick from Neu productions, we have some exciting stuff in the line up. So stay tuned for some updates on that, but as of right now i'll leave you all guessing.
So the Dew Tour is a wrap, now it's home for Christmas! I got upgraded on the flight to London, soo pumped on that, so I arrived feeling fresh to cruise up to town to the Red Bull HQ for lunch.
Next up for me is Colorado round 2, looking forward to getting back on my board already.
Enjoy CRIMBO, make sure to get involved in some good food and chill time, I sure know I am going to!
