Chicken Jam 2010

Mammoth mountain, again ready to host the Roxy chicken jam. Last comp of the season and the TTR winners are now cowned.

As always, great weather and riding in Mammoth. Course looking bigger and better this year. Wow, all the girls were charging. Sevens, fives, cab spins, switch spins...you name it!

Pretty stoked on my last pipe comp of the season, placing 5th here at the Chicken Jam:)

X-Games Tignes 2010



So the X-Games finally found its way to Europe:)..and I got an invite for pipe and slope and was way ready to shred the European alps!

Slopestyle was intense. 7 jumps, or 6 if you chose the rail instead, still a lot of things going on While I was riding practice and planning my run I suddenly came short on the first jump, tried to save my landing with the arm and ended up dislocating my elbow. Oh my God that was hurting like h...


One dislocated elbow and the X-Ray showing exactly that.

So no more Euro X, pipe or slope for me.

Since I don't have any footage from this comp I thought it was convenient to add my edit from X-Games in Aspen instead. Enjoy!
X-Games Aspen had one of the largest jumps this year 65 and 68 feet. They were really nice in the end, but for sure hard to get used to!

OLYMPICS VANCOUVER 2010

"GO LISA, GO LISA" Did we have the nicest poster or what?:

Another Olympics is over and the rest of the "normal" season can continue. It has all been a great experience and I have lots of memories to bring with me! To bad that the pipe was in real bad shape for the practice and we only got 3 hours of practice before the actual competition, but when it all happened on the 18th of February the pipe was almost perfect! Finally I could do my run and prepare as good as possible.

The atmosphere was amazing. So many people watching and cheering for us. I had my family and my boyfriend there to cheer me on. Didn't they have the best poster?:) I was feeling great and had so much fun riding the practice before the comp. I think I suddenly rode my best ever when it comes to amplitude and landing all my tricks. I was feeling ready and was coping well with the nerves! But, unfortunately I wasn't able to repeat that in the comp. Didn't go high enough so the judges gave me low scores. 0,3 points from the semi finals:(

Anyways I beca
me the best Norwegian HP rider at this Olympics:)

Thanks everyone for cheering me on and wishing me all the best! Olympics is for me just another big contest of the season, and I still have so much to look forward to. X-games Europe, U.S.-Open and Chicken Jam are up next. Since I've focused on more than the Olympics I wasn't too bummed about not doing well there. There is more to come!

So stay tuned for updates from the last competitions of this season.
