How was the FWQ season for you this year?

The 2022 FWQ season was incredible, not because we had stellar conditions at every event or because every comp run went how I anticipated, but because of the people and community IFSA has established. The level of performance at which the qualifiers circuit reached this year was beyond anything I have ever witnessed, and entirely inspiring within itself.

What are you up to this summer preparing for FWT? Any exciting projects planned?

I'm preparing for the FWT with a well-balanced mix of travel and training this summer. I'll be getting my feet or wheels on some new ground in both the tropics and the mountains. I am hoping that exposure to new terrain and physical development will benefit me in the upcoming season. 

Anyone you look up to or inspires you? Anyone you look forward to competing with on FWT?

I am inspired by every athlete who has ever stood in the start gate and dropped into a Freeride World Tour venue. I am stoked to soon be out there as well and joining this crew of wildly talented individuals.
