I haven’t blogged for ages so I thought I would do a quick season summery for 2014/15
The age categories were changed this season, so I had to move up from U12 to U16/U14 a year early even though I was still only 11. I was pretty excited to be riding against some bigger riders and my first comp of the season was at KJam in Kendal.
I was stoked to make it through to the final and even more stoked to find out I had placed 2nd in U16’s
Shortly after I was offered a place on the National Park and Pipe Academy! This means I get to train with some of the best riders in the UK, which is an amazing opportunity. I went out on some sick training camps in Austria, and even tried some bog boarding (by accident of course haha)
The season then just got better and better, and I won the U14 English Indoor Champion. It was held at Chill Factore which is my home slope, and it was awesome to win the title there.
I followed this by winning U16 Scottish Indoor Champion and U16 Scottish Slopestyle Champion titles. I love riding in Scottland and it was awesome to meet up with loads of the Park and Pipe Academy Crew again. I’m hoping that next season I can get a season pass for Cairngorm and ride as much as possible there.
Then it was time to head out to the Brits again.
We had a rode trip out to France and stopped over in The Netherlands to pick up my Auntie.
I love going there as you never quite know what you are going to see!
Then it was off to Tignes, and First stop TIGNES SPIRIT !!
First up was the Rail Jam! Rail’s aren’t my favourite things so I wasn’t sure if I was going to enter. So glad that I did tho, Not only did I have a sick time riding and catching up with friends, But I also came 3rd in U16!
My favourite event is always Half Pipe! I haven’t managed to train in one all season so that’s the first place I headed off to as soon as I bought my lift ticket. Tignes has a superpipe and it’s huge! I would spend all day in it if I could!
The qualification rounds were loads of fun and I managed to get a run with a Cab 3 and a Switch 3. When the results came out I was stoked to find out I had qualified for the overall women’s final in 2nd place, just behind the epic rider Maisie Hill…. Unfortunately I couldn’t get my runs as smooth in the final and took 4th place in overall Women’s and 3rd in U16, but I was still pretty happy tho.
Can’t wait for next season! hope it’s as sick as this one
