Last weekend I traveled down to Castleford with Snowsports Scotland for the British Indoor Championships! This year promised a brand new and exciting set-up and format for the comp. The jam format with progressive stages was an excellent way to battle it out against the other riders! After each jam the field was cut in half, leaving the best riders to fight for the title in 4 man final! I was lucky enough to make it to the final along with Scottish lads Sam McGrath and Matt McCormick. It was an awesome day for Scottish snowboarders and I managed to grab 2nd place overall! I was so stoked with the result and even won a bit of cash!
I landed a load of new tricks and had an awesome time with the Scottish Crew! After the comp we had a good night skating at Subvert before moving on up the road to Rossendale for a session on the dry mat. All in all an amazing weekend! So chuffed with my first two comps of the season and can’t wait to get out to Hintertux on Tuesday!
Check some of the photos and of course the Whitelines report of the event!
So gutted I can’t make it along to the Gonzilla.tv Invitational Rail Jam on Saturday! Stoked that the guys invited me to compete at this sick event. Unfortunately I will be training in Austria soon and will be getting prepared to travel out at the start of the week therefore I cannot make it to the comp. Hopefully be able to get down for the next one. Check out the website – http://www.gonzilla.tv/ - for further info about the event and make sure to catch the edit when it hits!
Resonance is hitting London for the UK Premiere on 24th September! This new movie from Absinthe Films looks unbelievable , the locations, tricks and the ridiculous list of riders! Definitely check it out!
Over the past few months I have been training at the Glenmore Lodge gym with John a Highland Institute of Sport S&C Coach! I am working with the Institute as a regional athlete alongside Scott Dixon and Calum Irvine local lads in the Biathlon GB Team.
So far we have been developing technique, posture and learning a lot about how our bodies work when lifting in the gym. At present I feel a lot stronger and it is great to be working with other athlete and developing specific muscles and exercises tapered to our sport. Dry-land training at the moment is starting to slow down as I move into the competition season, the flexibility of the Institute support is fantastic and I am so stoked to have them on board.
With this support comes help from physio and performance lifestyle advisers which help me to balance my training with other aspects of my life and sporting needs. Having specific physio routine has been great for my body awareness and control. Having the other athletes there as well helps to motivate me to push myself in the gym.
Just a little insight into my training over the past few months!
