Well this past 5 days I have been in Sydney competing in the newtons nation contest. I signed up for both disciplines (dirt and mini ramp) in the pro category for the first time in my life!
In mini ramp I only just made finals as I qualified last which was fair enough considering I was against some of the biggest names in bmx such as Kyle baldock, Ryan guettler, cam pianta, etc.
After qualifying for mini ramp was qualifying for dirt, I rode terrible in that. On my first run I popped out my knee, again. That ruined all my runs which didn’t let me qualify for finals, pretty bummed about that. But then the mini ramp pro final came around the day after and I rode the best I have ever ridden! So even if I placed last I still would have been stoked. Anyway I ended up throwing down some pretty consistent moves and JUST fell short of 3rd place by a quarter of a point to Ryan guettler, then mini, then Kyle baldock! Can’t even describe how stoked I am right now!
Thanks to everyone that made this weekend happen, and a big thanks to pilgrim and riding way!
