Hey everyone, Nick Sibayan and Mikaela Casey with a team update!!!
This week the Chevy Rev Tour was going on at Mt Hood, Oregon! It was the last stop of the series so everybody brought their "A" game. The Slopestyle course was pretty good and contained two jumps, a pole jam, and a flat rail.
During each of our practices we each stomped our first runs and were ready to our qualifying runs. Nick landed his first run of the qualifiers and it was good enough to qualify first for his heat. Mikaela fell her first run and knowing she needed to pull it together landed her second and qualified second in her round for women's qualifier.
Before finals the clouds of Mt. hood started to roll in and it made the visibility so bad that you could not see the first jump. The head judge decided to split the judging panel so that the whole course could be scored.
Mikaela was unsuccessful on her first run and she knew she had to stomp her second run in order to do well. Mikaela refocused and was able to stomp her second run and was stoked.
Nick stomped his first run for a solid score and went all out on the second where he washed out on his second.
We both ended up getting second place wins and were super stoked. We are headed back to So Cal to prepare for USASA National Championship being held at Copper Mountain Resort, CO. from April 4th through the 9th, 2010.
Cant wait to get there and we look forward to seeing everyone there!
Nick and Mikaela
