Sadly the Summer has just about come to an end, and what most of us call "the off season" is approaching. With this new riding season upon us, I figured it's time to start a new season of Fogelsodes!More details and videos inside!
This Summer was unbelievable as I got to spend it road tripping around Canada and the States. It began with the amazing experience of coaching at Camp of Champions
, where I got to spend each day riding with and teaching rad kids who are super stoked to ride. Everyday was amazing, riding the mountain all morning and the airbag and mulch jump at the compound until dark, with some great meals in between. Before we knew it, the inevitable was upon us and the last day of camp was sadly over. Conveniently Crankworx Colorado was in a few days so Brendan Howey, Justin Wyper, and I made the 29 hour drive to Winter Park Colorado! The contest went great, and despite some crazy weather, the show went down and I ended up with 6th place! All of a sudden I was back in Whistler, with a week to go until Crankworx started. I did a ton of riding with the Team Wolf guys, which is always a blast, with some awesome seshes going down. As Crankworx started, days became somewhat fast paced with practice, best trick, and finals all coming up quick. I felt pretty good about my qualifier run, and it ended up getting me into the finals! Excited, I changed a few things and ended up with a 9th place in the big show! It was an absolutely incredible experience, and I made tons of new friends while getting to ride so much that I don’t think the summer could have gone any better. Throughout the trip, I collected GoPro clips and put them together into a 15 minute video of my perspective of this summer.Enjoy!
As amazing as the summer was, by the end of Crankworx I was just about ready to go home, anticipating some time to relax, heal, and see all of my friends who I hadn't seen in months. Since I got back, it's been great spending some quality time with the Locs, jumping bikes and messing around! I've been collecting footage here and there, and put it together for the first Fogelsode of the second season.
