So this winter has been a dry one and just not for me. The places to be are Jackson Hole, the East Coast, and Japan. Needless to say I've been in Salt Lake City and riding out of Park City Mountain Resort and the Canyons since the second week of January.
Last week I traveled to Mont Tremblant, Quebec, Canada for the first stop of the North America's Cup. Although the course was nothing special it was a pretty good racing course allowing riders to stay together and race each other and not against the course. My 2 days of racing didn't quite go to plan, with a 1 run qualifier on the first day I went out with a crash in a rutted berm that saw a few others out as well. In day 2 Qualifying was 2 run qualifying and I made it to top 32 on the first run. Second run saw my face firmly implanted in the berm to end that run.
Race time arrived and in a tight heat with a terrible gate choice I was in the mix until a costly error 1/2 way down the track saw that quickly disappear and turn into a quick way out in the first round.
Now I'm back on the road and in Colorado for round 2. Enjoy the pictures and the video.
