From Claire –
Trans Am made 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 backflip 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! I am traveling to Utah today for the finals. Wish me luck should be a really fun competition.
Thanks to all of my sponsors for making my season perfect
