ENCOURAGING WORDS FOR BEGINNERS? ADVICE? Keep practicing, put the time in, whatever area of riding you’re into just put the time into it and you will see the results

Who knows?

Can’t force it, I guess someone or something will just happen.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE PLANNED THIS SEASON
(i.e. events, travel, videos, etc.)? A few more contests in the States and back in Europe for first ever X-games Europe in Tignes and then a trip to Tahoe to ride powder; stay at an eco-friendly lodge and cat skiing and then hopefully Ms. Superpark later in the year.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR RESULTS ON THE WINTER DEW TOUR?
Not too bad, but would like to do better for sure.
