a4h Saint Wow nice! Makes me wish I would have started a little sooner! Best of wishes to the young gun! He will be a monster as he develops! Make sure he keeps his respect of the terrain!

Argo not that extreme until he is off the Junior tour at 18. He is the youngest ever to be on the tour as a junior right now.... I didnt have the video equipment to get shots last year but I got some for this season. Here is a youtube of what the Junior comp looked like last year.

Sorry I'm new to this embedding stuff, hopefully one of these works.

Argo, is this what your son does just a junior version? If so he has got some serious cajones! This dummy is riding this with ice picks in hand?!? Is there anywhere I can see some video of your son competing? I am not too sure what the freeide tour is?

Argo Revy was awesome. their judging does suck, we are just using their comps as practice for.making event runs for freeride tour.

The kid that won first side slipped the majority of the course. Fucking skier judges thought it was great.... Second place and my son threw tricks down the entire run.... I think the kids Mom was blowing the judges but can't prove it, lol.....

Either way it was an awesome trip and the rankings help with sponsorship for him.

Will be skipping nationals for IFSA to go to freeride champs in April.

Best of luck to you this season. Don't let Senna beat you up too bad either. He used to be on my sons team pre ISTC days.
No IFSA for me this season, we just had our IFSA regional competition at Snowbird yesterday and over all I am not a huge fan of the judging...just my personal thing though. Congrats to your kid though, I bet Revelstoke was sweeeeeeeet!

Senna won't be to big of a problem...great rider who is fast but a lot of talk but not too much delivery from what I saw at Gold Camp. Thank you!

TUTRider Thanks for the advice but I think I will stick to my NS, seems to be beating Oxess, Donek, Kessler, Apex, and Priors just fine (Not all of them of course! haha). Name is Tristan Clegg by the way, feel free to look up my FIS list.

Argo I'm aware of the age limits in all of the circuits. I only mentioned the USASA because that is the only one you put down any sort of credential On.

Maybe you should switch to an sbx specific board and shave a few seconds off. I'll throw donek in the list too, another great sbx board......

If your 15 And just race along side them then sure but your not in that caliber of racing just yet. I have met and risen with quite a few of these guys and they have sbx specific boards. Not a neversummer.

Great you want to post how awesome your board is but the reality is clear at that level.

If you want to post your name and results to prove me wrong then do it. I only know what I know......
I race against Hagan at all the upper end comps, but yes I should have been more clear. I won the 16-17 Junior Men age group, which is considered to be the next most competitive group next to Open Class which I will be in this year. I am in the same class at every other competition though, because all of those above USASA are open class if you didn't know. I have raced against quite a few Olympians at those competitions and though I didn't beat them, I am right up with them on a Never Summer and kicking ass while doing it. Nate Holland, Jonathon Cheever, Seth Wescott, Ross Powers, Hagan, Tuttle, are all guys I have raced with at some point or another...

Ok. Junior divisions are different, your racing in the same circuit but not the same class. Huge difference. just because my son.ride in the freeride world tour doesn't mean he is.competitive against the big name pros, yet....

One day you may and I.hope you do!
