Crankworx Colorado

Hey guys , I have just come back from Crankworx Colorado... The course was sweet as , Built by John Cowan and my good mate Tommy Hey.
I turned up on wendsday and we had to sit it out for a while till the rain cleared. We got a good day of praccy in on thursday but the weather wasn't cooperating and we had to postpone qualifiers till friday , friday came and so did more rain so it was decided that the qualifiers and the finals would be all on saturday.
I woke up on saturday to clear skies and I was pumped for the event. I spent the whole morning getting my lines down on the course and was happy with my riding, and everthing was dialed on my 5spot. I was 3rd to last on the start list which sucked because i had to wait for nearly an hour till my run .. i dropped in and got thru the first two feaures sweet but I tagged my back wheel on a 360 out of the fruit bowl feature which knocked my score. the rest of my run went to plan and sat me in 8th position . but i knew that the second runs would definitly knock me out of a finals spot.
I planned on a big second run to secure a finals spot. i wanted to flip into the fruit bowl and 360 out which was pretty tech as you had to land the flip perfect and then ram on the anchors for the 360 or you would over shoot the landing by 2 meters.. it was looking all good I landed my flip in ok but it all happened to quick for my 360. I went down hard. I think I over shot .
My 1st run was good for 15th but I was pretty dissapointed with that. looking back I wish I played it a bit safer on my 2nd run but thats the thing with slopestyle...all or nothing!
Im in Denver now but will be returning to Whistler in a few days... yeeeeeah! I'm looking forward to shredding trails on my New DHR!
pics soooon!
