We had all the international riders that arrived early for Newton's Nation World cup including the fast - steeze Marisa Nunes from Peru and local shredder Gemma Holland from Brissy.
We had a round robyn system for the qualification and after a single elimination race to final for the opens (with the boys). I found it super fun and challenging to race these boys although we didn't do go to bad against some boys :) ..
Results for the opens where: Adam Person got 1st Robdog 2nd James Kelly 3rd.
This is what happened in my race: Got some fresh Biggie and i decided to do my very best and go as fast as i can...... I stuffed up my push at the start leaving me in third chasing Marisa and Gemma through the first corners. Gems was carving which made it tricky to pass her and slowed me down a bit. I passed Gems in the 4th corner and tuck as much as i can to reach Marisa.... Marisa had some previous crashes in the last corner so i knew that i had to focus on getting the right line to not drift out... she turned in front of me drifting out and crashing to the hail bails leaving me a free pass to 1st place. I turned around and the only person behind me was my mate Matt K filming our run, Gemma crashed too after Marisa, behind me....but got up fast and got 2nd place....to check it watch this funny Video below made by Matt K..
Fun day and well organized race, had heaps of fun and i was super stoked, watch this video of my race made by our mates from skate house media (Matt K)
