Practice for the Burton Open started on Wednesday at Snow Park. We got some good runs in although the light was flat. On Thursday we headed over at way too early in the morning for qualifiers. Browner put together a dope run with Cab 9 into Back 7. He qualified in second and I qulaified in 3rd.
Friday brought another early start for semi-finals. I managed to qualify in 12th and made finals. In finals the light came flat again but it didn't slow Mikkel Bang down. All 3 of his finals runs would have got him first place. I ended up in 8th, first New Zealander with a run that I didn't really plan to do but I stayed on my feet and made it to the bottom with a smile on my face.
Went night riding at Coronet Peak last night with Jake Koia, Bugs and friends before heading to Wanaka for the Manual party at Barluga. Sick bar and party but they overcharged like crazy. In turn people stole some beers - then got kicked out.
