Xgames day 3

So as many of you already know today was Xgames Qualifier for slopestyle. I didn’t start the day off as well as I would have liked. I crashed in practice which is never good as it screws with you mentally. I managed to get my run once before the comp started.

I wasnt in the best starting position. I was the first to drop. I managed to put the nerves aside and landed my first run clean. Got bumped down to second by Gus Kenworthy. Second run I change my rails up a little and it bumped me up to 1st with a score of 94.

Here are the scores:

Its crazy to see how high the level of skiing is at the moment. Everyone was throwing down really hard and I was impressed by it all.

Shout outs to Jossi wells. Coming back from an ankle injury and skiing as well as he is is beyond incredible.

I get to chill now for a while until about 6 and then I have big air training at about 7. I will let you guys know how the jump is.
