We woke at 7am to Doodle’s newest favourite song by the Momas and the Papas. Slowly the junctioners appeared in the kitchen. The sun was shining outside and the weather report was promisingly warm.
Out the door by 8am, we drove 15 minutes to Breckenridge, just in time for first lift. The park, Park Lane was looking perfect. Next door, the USA Slopestyle Team trained in Freeway (the plus size park full of 60 to 80 ft jumps and jumbo rail features).
We warmed up then began to work on the tricks we’d talked about that morning. Harry worked on unnatural flatspins. James stepped up to a few of the bigger jumps. Nic Barron and Gilbert tried to nail their mute 3s. Will was trying blind 270s of everything, meanwhile Nic Stevens found his feet again after an ankle injury 2 weeks ago and Ollie worked on styling out his switch 7s. However, the day went to Ryley who took things double with double cork 12s.
After the snow we headed into the gym for a recovery session with Anthony, SSA strength and conditioning coach.
Tonight we will sleep soundly with roast pork in our belly. Thanks Jackie.
