The Brits

31 Mar

So I flew back from Bear to Denver Friday, spent the night in Denver airport, back to Breck Saturday, back down to Denver Sunday and arrived in Tignes on Monday night…..straight into The Brits on Tuesday morning

So I was kinda tired going into the first event….. Bangers for Cash….The Brits Rail Jam. Tried to get into it but I was def struggling….but somehow managed to get 2nd!

Well done to all the ladies…Becky Menday 1st, Sabrina Burnham 3rd and Tignes local Kate Woods in 4th:)

Here are some pics and a zeach from the day:

After a mellow day riding on Wednesday, it was straight into The Brits Slopestyle on Thursday…..unfortunately, like for the rail jam, it was really really bad weather again

Visibility was so bad and it was so snowy, it was really just a case of trying to land a run and stay on your feet. I managed to get to the final, and stayed on my feet for my runs which gave me first place. Think I was just lucky! My final run I couldn’t see a thing…..decided it would be a great idea to take my goggles off my eyes half way down the run in to the jump……..this was actually the worst idea EVER, was totally blinded by the snow, couldn’t see where the lips were and couldn’t see how fast I was going. But I survived……minus any style on the course (kinda embarrassed by how bad my style was:( ). But was so happy with my placing, couldn’t have wish for more. Again well done to all the ladies….. Nathalie Silkstone 2nd, Kate Woods 3rd…….we battled through some pretty horrendous conditions! Here are some pics……sorry I’m not looking so hot

The BEST thing was….Rich Jonas (my boyfriend), won the Masters devision!!!! He hasn’t done a contest for a few years and it was so nice to actually do one with him!!! Was even more stoked for his result than mine…..theres life in the old dog yet!!! So we have matching gold medals….pretty gay really (his and hers!!!) but I was really happy haha!

Then I was off to Morzine for the European Finals of the Volcom Peanut Butter Rail Jam……………
