So, day one of Jacob Wester’s TrickBagChallenge went down today with practice. 20-25 riders sessioned the slopestyle-course and railpark all day in mixed-weather conditions. I haven’t been skiing properly since my injury in Austria nearly 3 weeks ago, and I was more than stoked to be back 100%.
First feature; Downbar og Flatdown Railbox.
Second feature. Rainbowbox or up-box.
The jumps had to be slightly adjusted throughout the day, but I think they are pretty sick. Floaty jumps with plenty hangtime.
Jump nr 2. Moneybooter. A little sketchy with the wind this morning, so they re-groomed the landing and closed it for the day. Most skiers spent the afternoon in the railyard, which is REALLY fun! Can’t wait for tomorrows qualifiers with everyone on the startlist. No walkovers or pre-quals!
Robbie beeing the man he is. Me and Robbie did hotlaps through the course all day, and we probably had like 35-40 laps. Insane but fun!
Clown 1 and Clown 2. Sig Tveit and Espen Bergh.
Dinner at 8 PM tonight, where we prob will get a little more information about the competition-format and so on. Stoked for tomorrow!
Make sure to check back in later tonight for a little course-preview video.
