24 Jan 2014 / 0 Comments / in Olympics

It’s official I am going to the Olympics! Can’t believe I am writing this, Team GB was announced yesterday.  I am so excited to be one of 6 snowboarders going to the Olympics to represent! It has been an insane journey the past 2 weeks, I am so excited to head to Russia in a week and make the most of this insane opportunity, and what’s even better I am going with one of my best mates Jenny Jones. ONE TEAM, TEAM GB, LET’S DO THIS! Watch out Russia.

On a 10 hour drive from Switzerland to Austria, I was talking to my Red Bull TM Rich King, and he gave me the opportunity to customize my own helmet! So went for it, and this is what we came up with.

It’s a time line of my life starting from the left, my roots, England, the 320 bus we used to get up to London, Big Ben with my lucky number 6 incorporated into the clock, a London Guard, a stamp with my DOB, I moved to the USA when I was 12 so I also incorporated the Washington Monument and then Harland and Wolff as I now live in Belfast, Northern Ireland. On the front I have all the countries / cities I have lived in starred with a flight trail map. Really happy with how it came out, thanks to Red Bull for giving me this cool opportunity!

5th WORLD CUP Canada.

20 Jan 2014 / 0 Comments / in Competions

I am just on my way back from the final World Cup before the Olympics, Quebec City,  Canada. I went there expecting the worst conditions, and I was pleasantly surprised, there was ice, it did dump of  course during semis and finals, but we also did see some sunlight which really changed my views on the cold and snowy city and the course was sick, 3 perfect jumps with good air time and 3 legit rails so it was all to play for.

I went there knowing I needed to get a good result to secure my Quota spot for the Olympics, knowing I needed approx a top 8 or better. I always am one to do things last minute and I really could not have left this any later! Definitely a learning curve for the next one! Good news is the Team is officially announced on the 22nd so hopefully all fingers crossed you will only have to wait a couple of  days to find out if I make the team ;)

I can honestly say I have never felt so much pressure, more from myself than anything! I had qualification on the Friday and I fell on my first run on a BACKFLIP of all things, my safety trick! So there was even more pressure for the 2nd run, knowing that If I didn’t land that, my “Olympic dreams as such” were done. With a good bit of singing and a bit of banter at the top with the rest of the girls, myself and Torah singing Spice Girls and dancing at the top of the course loosened the mood and I dropped in and stomped my run to quali through to the semi finals.

Last kicker world cup finals.

Semi Finals, there were a series of scenarios on where I needed to place, some people don’t like to know what they have got to do, but I wanted to know to put my mind at ease, it’s a completely different approach to any other contest I normally do, normally it’s all about me putting down my best run and going for it, but this really was about playing it safe and getting something solid to my feet. I dropped in, literally to the blizzard, 3rd to drop and probably put down the cleanest run of my life, I scored a 78 and that took me through to finals in 1st place. That automatically guaranteed me a top 6. So totally buzzing I dropped in for finals, I got one run to the feet, not as clean as the semis but I was just so pumped to finish in 5th place, secure my quota spot and make the Team GB criteria. BUZZING!Scotty + Nicholls

Thanks to the gang for all the support, the boys Ben and Dom, Hamish, Euan for Waxing my board like a champ! And all the girls on tour making it such a fun and memorable trip to Quebec. NOW I am on the plane having had half hours sleep last night and I am Xgames bound. Excited.

Ready to roll Russia

The girls ready to ROLL. Russian hats anyone?!!!

 

World Cup. Top 12!

22 Dec 2013 / 1 Comment / in Competions

Colorado is a wrap! I am currently chilling at Denver airport on Standby trying to hop on that earlier flight to head to my next destination for Christmas! Fingers crossed if not I’ll be sat here for another 8.5 hours haha.

Denver airport.

The last 3 weeks have been crazy, first off with the Red Bull camp in Aspen and then back to back contests with the Dew Tour finals in Breckenrdige and the World Cup at Copper Mountain, it’s been a fun few action packed weeks!

The World Cup went down on Friday, I finished in 11th place in very tricky conditions, it was tough, not going to lie, but I actually had a fun day riding with all the girls in the blizzard! I landed my run, not as clean or as good as I would have liked but to get something onto the feet and get my first of 2 top 12′s needed for the Team GB critera in a stacked field of 54 riders I left with a smile on my face, so my ROAD TO SOCHI as everyone is now calling it, has just begun!

Here is the full results list. http://data.fis-ski.com/pdf/2014/SB/7399/7399RLR0.pdf

Maas into Finals.

Thumbs up to surving the conditions, and my girl Cheryl Maas into Finals!

sunny slash.

ALSO if you didn’t see it on FACEBOOK, during the week we had a day off from World Cup training, so I went to Breckenridge to get in the Christmas spirit, we sang Jingle Bells all day, and I did backflips all day, I needn’t say anymore I think the video speaks for itself.

HAVE A GREAT CHRISTMAS EVERYONE :)
