Aloha ahiahi ia oukou K-Wood,

I was stoked to get a minute of A-Bomb’s time tonight to get the 411 on the North Face Masters @ the Bird! From the athlete to the blog here we go, A-Bomb qualifying into 20th today along with Casey Lucas ripping the women’s ranks into 9th place! Rose Daiek is out, she ripped the top line & just missed a bottom air, she rocked in @ 21st the cut line was 14. All’s good Rose! You’ll be back with a samurai’s vengeance ready to stand on the podium again here at Kirkwood for the North Face Masters in March!

 

I asked Adam about the riding today? “The riding today was the best I have ever seen it, on both sides both men & women. It was legit, the next step, the next level, in the progression of big mountain freeride competition!”

How was the terrain on Silver Fox A-Bomb? “It was legit, a good venue, the snow was variable sheets of ice combined with powder. The athletes made it look amazing, on both sides even though it was what it was. So it was a great time & snowbird puts on a great event.”

Tomorrow is a powder day for the crew, then the finals on Sunday. So what is the plan for tomorrow? “A great day of riding, new snow in the forecast, I’m looking to enjoy the powder & just go out and freeride. I’m saving myself; I’m not going out and sending it, just not going to take chances. For myself personally I’m going to be out riding trees, riding steep faces with powder, not taking chances with my board or body!”

The Finals on Sunday where are you at? “Well I feel like I’m in a really great spot to make it all come together. You have a lot a good talent and a lot of great terrain. I think that’s where experience comes into play. There are a lot of athletes that like to go for it and I like it! It makes me step it up to a higher level. It makes you HAVE TO STOMP IT! You just have to stomp stuff! So that’s the best part about it. I love that you have to make the landings! You have to know where you’re going, flawless, fluid and in control!”

 

So how do feel about the finals on North Baldy? “North Baldy is a great site, it drains out into the amphitheatre which has a lot of options. Rock drops, doubles, and some big airs & it has features you can be creative with. So you have a chance to stomp so big airs and be creative. It’s pretty legit, not the Cirque, its being creative and sticking to your line and stomping your landings!”

 

Thanks for the time Adam, Good luck to you & the crew on Sunday! We’ll get a live update from Casey & Adam tomorrow and post as soon as we can! Give’m some lov’n K-Wood. Below are the results from today’s comp. Snowbird Day 1 on Silver Fox. Rose, you travel safe and we’ll see you here back at the Wood…….

Stay Thirsty Amigos,

Coop
