Woke up to a foggy COP (Calgary Olympic Park) on the day of finals. It didn't look like they were going to follow the schedule which ment my flight at 03.35 might leave without me. Anyways. Change my goggle lens and was ready for practice. It was not to bad actually, I could see the jumps but everything was a bit bright to be honest. Landed a few runs and was stoked that it all worked out. When finals started the wind picked up and Meri Peltonen overshot the second kicker badly and got taken down by the sled:( I was nervous to drop after that and landed all my jumps on the knuckle, and no grabs. Second run wasn't any better. I had to sep it up and land a clean run like I did in practice. And finally I got it together in the third and last run. Top section with the rails was ok, then the three jumps front 360 style, bs 540 indy and switch bs 360 indy. I was really happy to finally land a clean run and rode straight down to the cab that was waiting for me and head to the airport. I'm really sorry I missed out on the price-giving cause this was my first podium of the season. Anyways, really stoked to get 2nd place!!!
Enni and me. Congrats Enni on your third win in a row:)

Right now ranked 1st on the TTR and the Burton Open Series. :) :)
