2014 USASA SBX Race Update #1

The first weekend of SBX Racing is in the books and things went pretty well.  I won two Gold Medals and felt like my riding picked up right where it left off at the end of last season.  Gym training has been solid and I feel physically strong, though there’s still a lot of work to do before Nationals.

I haven’t had a lot of opportunities for on-snow racing prep this season, so I was anxious to get plenty of course-time in on the practice day.  I was also on a brand new board, which I still haven’t broken in or gotten totally comfortable riding yet - and before this weekend had only ridden for 4 runs!  Despite the new board factor, I had consistent Time Trial runs and qualified #1 each day (41.81 sec and 41.78 sec) which meant I got first choice for the starting gate during the Finals.

I didn’t wear my GoPro during the races, but do have some footage of the course and from a warm-up run on our practice day.

Thanks to for some great time trial and race pictures.  You can see more of them on my Facebook Page.  Thanks also to USASA Rocky Mountain Series for hosting a great weekend of racing and providing a fun, well-built course.

My next event in the Rocky Mountain Series is at the end of the week and then Nationals are the first week of April.
