So I have just finished up with the Ripcurl Freeride Pro here in Aus. It turned out pretty good this year as we have a awesome day riding on the Tuesday with sunny blue sky’s and some good snow which was great to kick start the event.
I ended up qualifying in 4th followed by Ben Mates & Pete Long tying in 2nd and then the Kiwi Mitch Brown taking out day 1 qualifiers with a sweet under flip off the bottom jump.
Unfortunately the weather came in for the next 2 days and we didn’t get a chance to run the finals so results of the event ended up coming off day 1 qualifiers results.
The Throw Down event was on the Wednesday night and Charles and the boys really put something special together this year. Team Ripcurl had Kieran McLaughlin taking out 1st place with a sweet gap 360 onto the down box. But all in all it turned out to be a great fun event again. Thanks to Ripcurl for putting on a great event again this year.
