EURO X – Tignes

28 Mar 2013 / 0 Comments / in Competions

So Euro X games wrapped up last week, and it was a blast.  Sun, baguettes, cheese, and a great slopestyle course what more does one want when in France? Officially my last contest of the season was the World Cup in Sierra Nevada, Spain but unfortunately it was cancelled 2 days ago. So here is the low down from Tignes and a few behind the scenes snaps of what went down!

ISPO + EURO OPEN

10 Feb 2013 / 0 Comments / in Competions, Interviews, Random

I am currently sat on the plane! After a week on the road, that started out in Munich Germany for ISPO! Roxy flew us out there for the gigantic tradeshow. Don’t think I have ever seen anything quite like it you literally cannot walk from one stand to the other without bumping into someone you know. The Roxy stand was next level impressive, so myself and Kjersti Buaas hung out, did some interviews took a few photos and entertained ourselves in the meca that is ISPO!

ROXY stand

Roxy put us up in an insane hotel, it was so nice that when I arrived with Lesley Mckenna our Roxy TM we thought it was a museum, then a potential art gallery so we actually drove past it 2x haha! And then walked in and asked if it was a hotel.

HERE ARE a few pics from our antics!Screen Shot 2013-02-10 at 13.22.54

ISPO interviews

Next stop was the EUROPEAN OPEN (POWDER) WIND (INTERVIEWS) AND FOAM PITS!

So we got up mega early to hit the road, and battle the snowy conditions to make it to LAAX, Switzerland in time for practice, however day 1 practice cancelled SNOW, day 2 practice cancelled SNOW + WIND, Wednesday we got on the course for an hour, and then come game day… yesterday we woke up to Blizzard like conditions so unfortunately the contest had to be cancelled a real shame as they had done a great job on the course and I was loving it.

WHITEOUT

Whiteout park laps. FUN… but white.

Burton put us up in the Rocks resort, real pimp apartments, and looked after us so well at the contest, so huge thanks for having me as a invited rider.

I did however ride my first pow days of the season.

In other news, today I was meant to fly to Russia for the first Olympic test event, it got cancelled due to lack of snow! Crazy as I mission-ed it back from the US to get a visa in London, the Pipe event is still on, so looking forward to hearing what crazy stories the GB lads come back with! The countdown is on now. 1 year to go.

Dew Tour.

18 Dec 2012 / 0 Comments / in Uncategorized

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.

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.

UPGRADED

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!
