Today ended up being a beautify day at all the venues! The snow that gave us some issues yesterday blew westward and left us with sunny skies all day long. When not competing, the athletes could be found all over the mountain checking out the powder. In fact, boys 10-12 skiercross champion, Kai Sherman, was found on the backside of Copper Mountain sporting his #1 bib!
WE MADE IT to 2012. I am not sure if I am excited or scared and I will tell you why. I have already had two ACL surgeries and a bone bruise all on the same knee. I just got tested in November in Utah at the Olympic Training Center to see if I can compete. I found out that my knee isn’t ready yet. I am not allowed to compete in half-pipe or boardercross. I am still happy I can free ride. I have been going to the gym as much as I can and also got on a strict diet to try and build muscle on that knee.
Dear USASA Members,
The USASA Foundation is pleased to announce that 25 grants will be issued under The Nationals Assistance Award for the 2012 winter season.The Foundation was originally planning to distribute $6,000 in awards during this inaugural year, but because we received additional last-minute donations from Allisports (Dew Tour/Gatorade Freeflow Tour), Bomber Skis and other anonymous donors, we were able to double the number of athletes being supported this season.
