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.

Dew Tour 7th Place.

15 Dec 2013 / 0 Comments / in Competions, Uncategorized

On Wednesday I competed in my 2nd event of the season! The Dew Tour, Breckenrige Mountain, USA! Qualification went down and 8 out of the 25 girls competing went through to the finals, and I made the cut, really stoked, last season this was the event I gave my shoulder a good bash in so it was good to be back :)

Finals run. PHOTO - ZIMBO.
Finals went off on Friday, and I had a good time! Out of breath after a run down the action packed course! 2 rails, 2 jumps, 2 rail features into the final 2 jumps! I can honestly say that is the most fun slope course I have been on :D

On the big screen, thanks everyone who tuned into watch and for all the supportive messages, means a lot :)

- Run 1 – on the jumps I went cab underflip, backflip, backflip to back 3, I lost speed on my underflip so had to improvise with my run and went with an extra backflip to keep my speed through the course to put my first run to my feet. - Run 2 – I went for the run I intended to in run 1, cab underflip, front 3, backflip to back 7 and just put my bottom down to scuff the landing!

I am trying to locate some footage so those of you who didn’t see me live can watch my runs, Transworld Snow, have put up a little video and I have 2 shots at the start, so I vined the shots so you can see. Enjoy!

Congrats to the ladies of the podium, Jamie Anderson, Enni Rukajarvi + Silje Norendal. Onto the next one, we have the Copper World cup this week. Stay tuned :)

Right now I am chilling in the BA lounge with a 5 hour wait with the gang, straight off the mountain and to the airporto. Having had a solid trip to Stubai.

Just posted my first insta video! ha. Hope you enjoy it

The Brit gang.

So this was the “stubs” crew. Jenny Jones. Jamie Nicholls. MYSELF. + our one skiier friend Mr James Woods aka Woodsy.

Cords.

Not the kind of cords your Grandad wears ;)!

I have more hair.

This guy showed up on the 2nd day, Mr Shaun White, I win the fro contest in this one ;)

Hall way madness

Down days can get a little repetative. Need I say anymore. “coming through” Rowan Coultas paid us a visit, he did some dub 10′s + we won the carting contest.

Spa club

Jamie Nicholls was the local boy at the spar, I think we both hit the spa 13 out of the 14 days, pretty good way to unwind after a days shred.

Kart action.

Another down day activity, can’t say I was the winner at this, Woodsy and Cheryl smashed it!

Thanks to the gang for an epic trip! Shout out to Hamish + Sharples to. It’s a wrap. Next stop for shred in 2 weeks, stay tuned :)
