First Month in New Zealand

I came straight to New Zealand  from Whistler and have spent the last month staying at my friend Jay Pattinson's place which is right in the centre of Wanaka. Theres a good crew of riders and friends already here so I have had a good time chilling in the town and lapping the early season jumps and rail line up at Cardrona.

The pipe opened two weeks ago, so after a really chilled fortnight, I have started putting it down ready for
the comps which kick off this month. The rest of the British team and coaches arrived yesterday so I have now moved into a house on the other side of town with some of the crew.

The World Cup and next Olympic qualifyier is in less than two weeks so its going to be a sick month. I am feeling really confident after the whistler camp so its now all about getting my run on lock and consolidating the new tricks I want to add in before the comp. Thanks for reading and keep posted!
