A Big Week in the Big Leagues

bigweek

Most definitely a big week in the big leagues this past week for Rocky Mountain Series Alum's and current season competitors.  

RMS Alumni scored two first place Boardercross finishes at the World Cup in Montafon, Austria with Belle Brockhoff & Hagen Kearney atop the podium in the #1 spots.  Hagen's hard work and dedication paid off with his first World Cup victory after 28 starts over the last 5 years!  

Back in North America, Freeskier Aaron Blunck took 3rd in Saturday mornings Toyota Grand Prix World Cup Halfpipe Finals at Copper Mountain. After falls in his first two runs Aaron said to himself "hey, just chill out, go out and ski and have fun" which definitely showed the judges that he was worthy of a 3rd place finish. Just out of reach of a podium finish in 5th place was Birk Irving with a solid first time finals appearance in a World Cup.  Right next door to the halfpipe on Saturday afternoon, the Toyota Grand Prix World Cup Big Air Finals were held.  Three RMS alum qualified into the top 10 and battled for podium spots with Nik Baden ending up in 7th, Eric Willet 8th and Chris Corning in 10th.  

And finally in Buck Hill, MN, RMS / SSWSC riders Maggie Rose Carrigan, Billy Winters & Ryan Rosencranz dominated the Race to the Cup Slalom Alpine races with Maggie scoring a trifecta of wins, Billy with a 2nd and two 3rds and Ryan with a 2nd and a 3rd.

The 2016/17 Rocky Mountain Series is well underway with a Rail Jam coming up on New Years eve to close out 2016 and will open 2017 with Snowboard & Freeskier Slopestyle contests at Copper Mountain. Both of these events are Rev Tour Qualifiers, both will be dual sancitoned as well with the snowboard contest a WSF Regional and the freeskier an AFP Bronze level event.
