Last weekend was the Pleasure Jam over in Dachstein, I went over from Stubai with the GB crew where the weather had been bad the whole time we were there. The practice day at the comp was bad weather as well so we just rode the rails in the course and managed to hit the first jump. The course was, rainbow rail, two jumps, multi feature of either two jumps, a cannon rail or a flat rail, then an up rail into wall ride then down rail. The next day was qualis and the weather was way better! I landed my first run which was cab 2 on, cab 9, back 7, front 7, axel stall on the wall, noseslide pretzel on the down rail. It put me first overall into the semi finals, i was so stoked! The weather came back in before semis so it was pushed to the next day. The weather was banging again the next day and i landed my run a few times in practice, I landed my first run again in semis which was, cab 2 on, cab 9, back double 10, front 7, axel stall, noseslide pretzel. That run got me through to the finals which was the top 8, I did the same run in finals and i finished 6th overall! Was so stoked on the result, can’t wait to go back next year!!!
and rode some powder for a few days with Tom West and Cheryl Maas which was so much fun! Me, my dad and Jamie Nicholls left Mayrhofen on Wednesday night to Dachstein because Thursday was an all day practice. The course was quite small about a 7 metre jump to a 13 metre jump to either a flat rail or a rainbow rail and then a wall-ride. I had a sick day practice riding with Jamie Nicholls, Aimee Fuller, Cheryl Maas and Mathias Weissenbacher. Next day was qualification and I was in heat 3 my 1st run was cab under-flip, front 7, tail-slide 270 and 50-50 back 3 over the wall-ride which score
d me 62. On my second run I did a cab underflip then went for a front 10 but overshot the landing and I got a seriously bad dead leg which hurt for 2 days after! They took the top 6 from each heat and I came 5th in mine so I made it to the final. The
weather sucked on finals day super windy so we had to hit the medium jump I did cab under-flip to back 7 on them and that placed me 14 overall so stoked on that! Also well done to Aimee who won the women’s she killed it! and Jamie who cam 3rd in men’s and got best trick fro front blunt 450 out. Such a rad comp definitely want to go back next year!
