Last Thursday I flew out to Modena, Italy to take part in a rail contest. The contest was part of the Modena Ski Pass which is like the Freeze and ISPO rolled into one. When i arrived i practised one the course but only on one of the rails. There were other competitions on before my event including qualification for other riders to reach the semi finals which i had been invited straight into.
The semi’s consisted of ten invited riders and ten that had made it through the qualification. The format was a 1 hour jam session where ten of your runs were judged and your top two scores counted. Then the top 8 made it through to a knock out final. I managed to make it though the jam session to the top 8 and then went on to finish 3rd overall in the final.
