Guys wow what a amazing amazing event .. Where do I start ? The ladies slalom final kicked things off with a good pace, I didn’t watch the first couple of skiers but I saw Nicole, Whitney, Anais and Regina all run 38 but nobody looked as tough and strong on her ski as Regina did !! Her 39 start to get to three was awesome !
1. Regina 2 1/2 @ 39
2. Nicole/ Anais 2 @ 39
4. Whitney 1 1/2 @ 39
The guys final started off with a bang quickly , TGas was first off the dock and ran 39 and got 1 at 41 but got his gates pulled, JB was next and ran 1/2 @ 41 and Rossi was right after and ran the same .. Sasha, Carlos, Fred all missed 39 and Asher had a good start but messed up pretty bad and couldn’t recover and missed 6 ball at 39.
I felt really good last night and really felt dialed from my first pass through 39 , I was so pumped when I won guys , I just made sure I didn’t overturn one ball and put myself in a runoff… Got the win !!
So let me back track a little bit and tell you what all went on last night lol , when we had the opening ceromonies , we had a stage with lights and a laser show and fireworks, well the fireworks were putting super high sparks that we had to cover up and run through the stage cause the ash was so bad , TGas got ash in his eye and ended up scratching it and having to see a doctor but he said it ended up being ok .. So that was kinda a wild opening for the comp !!
So after I won the Nautique 200 pulls up and Regina and I get in the boat and they tell me to get on the nose of the boat and Regina stand on the back of the boat as the boat slowly goes down the lake , they hand Regina 2 flares and light them , will Gilles (the lake owner) lights mine and hands it to me and he had it pointed at me and it fires and nails me right in the forehead and burning my head and some hair to go along with it!! I didn’t even care though and acted like it never hap.. I was to excited that I won!!
Thanks Dave for getting me on the best ski brand possible to have moments like these that I will never forget , you have no idea how much I appreciate it and how much it means to me …
