Snowboard Results February 2021
A lot has been happening with Gould snowboarding!
The FIS slopestyle team (Cooper Provencher, Nate Pare, Joe Senner, Aidan Mahoney) had their Colorado competition rescheduled for late March, but spent their time training. Coach Dustin reports excellent conditions and all of the riders learning new tricks on big jumps; tricks they could not have learned here at Sunday River. This includes a backside double 1080 by senior Aidan Mahoney. The crew arrived home Saturday and is in quarantine until their 2nd covid test comes back. Thank you to Mr. Parker and all of their teachers for supporting them on the trip.
Dali Gao is still in China, but his competitive season came to an abrupt end as he came up short on a feature while training on the FIS World Championship course for the 2022 Olympic Test event and fractured a bone in his heel. He is in Beijing now with his family and figuring out his next move. He still has a good shot at the China Olympic SBX team.
We have had several USASA Maine Mountain Series comps in the past two weeks.
