IMG_08491So I went home to Minnesota for thanksgiving and my plan was to come back to LA for a few days of school and head to Colorado friday the 4th so I would have a week of practice before the Grand Prix  at Copper. Unfortunately the sunday before I started having severe stomach pains, I tried to push through it but the next night I could not handle it anymore and I went to Urgant Care who sent me to the Emergency room who a few hours later admitted me to the hospital.


An Update from Faye Gulini

ladies-podiumJust got back from Telluride competing in the Boardercross World Cup. It was a short exciting trip. I had great results. I got 8th in the race which is higher than I have ever placed in a World Cup and was the top US lady. This qualified me to compete in the next three Boardercross world cups to try and qualify for the Olympics. I was then asked to do the team race with Lindsey Jacobellis.


Nick Sibayan in the house!

MohawkHey everybody!  Hope everyone had a blast this summer.  What was my summer like?  Well, thanks for asking!  Mid summer, I headed to Pennsylvania to hang with the team at Camp Woodward.  Wow!  What an awesome time that was!  I met so many people and made so many friends, not to mention all the cool stuff I did.  The trampoline set up there is amazing. I’m so lucky and privileged to do so many cool things and everyone associated with the USASA Pac Sun Team is so supportive and awesome….like ninjas.  I can’t wait to hang out with everyone this upcoming winter.


Mike and Mimi's pre-season update

MikeAndMimiHey everyone! Last week was our second week on snow here in Colorado. We have been staying in a huge house in Keystone with the rest of our team plus two Dutch Girls and two Japanese guys, and it's pretty crowded! We have been going back and forth between training at Copper Mountain and A-Basin each week, and so far training has been pretty relaxed, with everyone just trying to get their feet back underneath them and we haven't had to be on the hill any earlier than 9am, which has been great! That is all going to change though this week, when we start a five day, 7am training session at A-Basin.


Mimi Wiencke Checking In!


Mimi WienckeFirst off, I just wanted to say that I’m super excited to have been named one of the USASA’s Riders’ Representatives for this season, and I want to thank everyone out there who voted for me at Nationals!

I just arrived in Steamboat Springs, Colorado yesterday after a 2-day drive from Minnesota. Not much in the way of snow here yet (it was 67 degrees yesterday!), however A-Basin has been open for over a week and we start training there tomorrow. Can’t wait!!

IMG_0796What’s up everybody! After an amazing season last year that ended with a Nor-Am champion title, I began to plan this year way differently than I had expected. With the Nor-Am title, I have the opportunity to compete in every World Cup and Olympic qualifier. I was so excited to get the chance to compete at the top level Boardercross races that I decided I would focus all of my time on the upcoming season instead of attending Colorado University at Boulder which I will plan on doing next summer.
