People are not exaggerating when they call Montana “Big Sky Country.” With more open sky than we who live in ski towns are used to, protruding mountains in every direction and an “old west” type vibe still lingering in the air, Montana is, and always will be one of the last great frontiers.
Trans Am makes their 7th stop at Northstar last Saturday.
Northstar’s park crew created a really fun, and creative layout for the competition. With 12 features and three jumps, the course gave riders a chance to show their different styles of shredding. The weather was perfect and the vibes were great. I could tell that everyone there was excited to push their shredding abilities during the jam format qualifiers. Qualifiers lasted an hour long, with 85 competitors that was a perfect amount of time for every rider to get a chance to hit all the features and try multiple tricks. I was so exhausted after the qualifiers, hiking for an hour straight, trying to rush up the course to get another run in… with an hour break before finals began I had to take a few laps in the park. Northstar’s park is one of my favorite parks surrounding lake Tahoe. It has a perfect flow of rails and jumps.
Finals began with 15 minute intervals for each section of the course. I had a lot of fun during the finals, however the one trick that I am really excited on was my back flip off the middle jump, to a 180 over the Muscle Milk fence, to a cab 180 over the gap. What a fun day! After all of that riding the host of the competition fed us an amazing lunch and gave out awards. I ended up making podium with 3rd place!
Thanks to all of my sponsors for making my season perfect
