  • Americans Qualify 7 to Slopestyle Finals | USSA - Foundation
    is the first time this year the course has been up It s nice to be able to sleep in my own bed and feel as comfortable as possible McRae Williams It went pretty well I came out a little nervous with the conditions and the course is a little different with only two jumps You really gotta separate yourself from everybody else I put down a run I knew I could do clean and tried to be as clean as possible from top to bottom because I think that s really what the judges are looking for here It went well first run I got an 84 I think I m sitting in third right now so hopefully that holds up and make it on to tomorrow The snow is really coming down now For our practice this morning the sun was kinda out a bit This morning is was a light snow not really affecting the speed too much Now it s getting thicker and starting to accumulate The top section up there is so flat you gotta milk it for all it s worth The snow is giving us a rough time but we re making the best of it Gus Kenworthy It was alright out there today The weather was not ideal It was snowing pretty hard earlier and then it kind of let up but then the wind picked up a little bit just a bit of a headwind The combination of the new snow and the wind makes it pretty hard to clear the jumps and the moisture made the rails a bit sticky But everybody killed it and put it down I saw Bobby Brown put down a really good first run so it got me stoked to try and put down a run that I originally hadn t planned to do and step it up So I did and I was able to land Joss Christiansen put down an insane run It was a strong second heat It s definitely a really rail heavy course The jumps get weighed heavily as far as what you do on them because you only have two of them to take advantage of But there are so many rails that it kind of becomes a rail course So you have to really stand out on those and still hold your own on the jumps Joss Christensen It was a pretty rough day out there The jumps were sticky the rails were sticky The rails were actually what scared me the most I m a little bit bigger than everyone I feel like I had a little more weight coming in so I wasn t having as much trouble with the jumps I couldn t slide the second middle down rail so luckily I did one more run before training was over and changed it up and it ended up working out for me Tomorrow I m going for the rail run I love being able to
