Ayla just spent the summer training in NZ and she wrapped up her training with the NZ Nationals where she won Boardercross, Halfpipe and Slopestyle. She’s been riding her B-Mini and she loves it! Thanks Ayla for putting our B-Mini to the test and making it look so good!
I had a fantastic time in New Zealand! Both Cardrona and Snowparks are great to ride. The coaches and team mates were really good and we had a lot of fun together! I got a lot of time on rails and boxes which is good as that is what I’ve done the least, and also quite a bit in the pipe which was great. We had a lot of windy and snowy weather which made it difficult for me to ride the kickers as I’m so light and often couldn’t get enough speed, but I still got a lot of base training on them so I’m ready to move on to bigger spins when I get back home!
The NZ nationals went really well and I won Boardercross, Halfpipe and Slopestyle and came third in giant slalom. Those results also made me win my category. I can’t actually call myself an NZ champion as I’m not a New Zealander, but I was still stoked to get 1st! Time went so quickly in NZ, I wished I could have stayed longer, but luckily the winter in Europe starts soon. I can’t wait for the season to start!
