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

It was such a sick comp and every rider got a slab of the BEST FOOD EVER! Kendal mint Cake.

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!

Tignes Spirit have been supporting me for 3 years now and I love being part of the team. They have just hooked me up with Airblaster and I love the clothes! Especially my NINJA SUIT!

I’d been working really hard training but I knew it was still going to be really difficult in the U16’s.

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
