Another ace day for Bearsden’s Go Big or Go Home last month seeing riders come from all over the country for the World’s biggest dry ski slope freestyle competition* (*source verified by.. em.. us..) Fantastic Sponsorship from the industry and we can’t thank them all enough (see full sponsor list)
With the day starting off with an open jam session for the Boarders followed by the skiers open jam, riders progressed through to a jam semi finals followed by the infamous head to head finals. These are judged pitting the top 4 riders from each category against each other for 1st to 4th placings.
The boarders finals showed some real creative stuff, 7’s and 9’s aplenty, finishing off with final runs showing tweaked 180’s – making the judges job even harder with tech versus style.
The skiers did not disappoint either, with the judging of the top places being difficult tracking the corks, inverts and various grabs to award placings in the strong field!
Well done and thanks to riders from all over, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and lots of friends from Englandshire – especially Stoke .
Bearsden riders had a great showing with Podiums for Boarders Bradie Zimmer-Collins, Lewis Moore and Ciaran Tucker, and Skiers Olivia Burke, Luke Burke, Ronan McLaren, Callum Morrans and Chris McCormick.
Massive thanks to the whole McCormick clan as usual (Gerry, Alison, Louise, Danny, Matt and Chris) – they know how to put on a show!
