December in Colorado

It has been a really good start to the season over in Colorado. Arriving at the end of November after a pretty hectic pre-season since getting back from NZ, I had plenty of time to get settled before a solid three weeks of riding over here. The British set up is based in Frisco so we have been switching between Copper Mountain and Breckenridge parks. This is the 5th year I have been out to CO in December so its back to the routine and enjoying the sick set up they have out here

Early season laps at Copper Mountain

I also ended up competing in the Revolution Tour at Copper Mountain on the 10th and 11th of December. This was my first halfpipe competition in two years so it was a pretty big mental test and good practice for the main comp season which kicks off in January. I played things safe aiming to just get solid runs down as a base to build on. I landed 4/4 runs across two comps, finishing 23rd and 25th (/56). Decent start.

Opening day of Freeway at Breck Parks. Had a really good last week shredding up there and the pipe was money. One of my favourite spots in the world.

I am flying home for christmas tomorrow which I am very excited about. Time to see the family, girlfriend and friends back in the UK before heading back out to the states early in January. Buzzing!
