Congrats Athletes! North Face Open Jan 13-15, 2014
Congratulations to our Freeriderz Matt, Colin B, Eli, Cam, Brayden, Austin and Mark who went out to compete in this years North Face Open in Whistler. Mother nature was very kind on the weekend we arrived with a much needed dump of snow. The boys finally got some use out of their powder skis and saw most of what Whistler has to offer.
Monday was training day and unfortunately Cam was injured. He is back on his feet and on his way to a full recovery.
Tuesday was the qualifying round. 75 athletes competed and all our boys did great. For most of these guys it was thier first experience at such a high level event. In the end Mark finshed 1st and advanced to finals along with 13 top qualifiers. 3 pre-qualified athletes were added to the list for the final event.
Wednesday morning the weather was sunny and warm for training but by afternoon the fog rolled in and played havoc with the event. Due to weather holds the athletes were only able to finish 1 run each. Mark ended up in 4th place and was super stoked!
