It has been awhile since I last checked in. That’s because I’ve been busy with the new semester and planning out my 2017 “on board” adventures. So let me fill you in on what I got planned so far, and where I’m hoping to go.

Next week I’m starting my year off right with a short visit to California to hang with  Ronin Trucks. I’ll be skating the legendary “GMR” for a few days warming up my legs for next adventure which will bring me back to Australia.

I start my adventure back to Australia Feb 13th, for the return of Newton’s Nation  in Bathurst Australia. This will be the first time the event will take place since, 2013, this is also the first race on the International Downhill Federation  2017 World Circuit. Riders will be fighting for their first points and a chance to be crowned Newton’s Nation Champion for the first time since 2013.

Here’s a little preview of the Newton’s track:

After Australia I’ll be returning back home to recuperate from jet lag and get some classwork done. All before heading back out in March to Big Mountain Skate’s  “El Bueno” Freeride in Tenerife, Spain. The goal there is have a good time, and gather as much media as possible to share with you. Stay tuned!

After that, the plan is to head back East for the first ever International Downhill Federation Asiana tour. Unfortunately I won’t be attending the races in the Philippians because that is around the time the semester is wrapping up and finals are taking place. However, I will be attending the Silk Road Challenge in Chengdu, China, and the Arirang Hill Fest in South Korea.

After that I have hopes of attending races in the U.S and heading back to Europe for the “Euro Tour,” and paying a visit to my new board sponsor IXO.

2017 is going to be a busy and hype-filled year! That means I got to get back to work and get ahead with my classes. Stay tuned for more adventures from the  #PROSSecutorworldtour2k17
