2011 Nationals @ Copper Mtn. Official Results through Three days

We have seen four days of charging from the SMS Snowboarders and here are our official Team Results through three days plus Day 4 "unofficials" as far as I know so far. There are some events still getting done and nothing is official until awards tonight. With most of the Elite Crew off (resting from Jr Worlds and Pro event injuries or pursuing pro media exposure at "The Launch"), we have turned to the younger up and coming riders to carry the SMS Snowboarding torch at the Awards Ceremonies. Great Job Kids!

Day 1
Breaker Girls Halfpipe...Meghan Tierney 6th place.
Breaker Boys SBX...Xander Raith 3rd, Maverick Shaw 5th, Scott Sweitzer 26th place.

So far so good and today's unofficial Results have been at least as positive for most of our team that was riding...James and Eric B are out there in Open Finals right now. Unh. Yeeah!

Pit Bull Time Trialing
If there is one thing as cool as winning as it's probably going the biggest and getting second. Maverick Shaw.
Breaker Boys Halfpipe was very tight and our boys were heavy in the mix. Maverick Shaw was the clear title holder in AMPLITUDE and he posed for what is easily my best shot of the week without even interrupting his 2nd place run. Very Rad. Xander rode solidly into 9th or tenth and Scott Sweitzer was tied for 22nd. The tie will be broken by the riders highest single score used for the total score. Very Proud of these boys for riding high among 70 competitors who were invited for winning around the country from Alaska to Jersey.

Youth Men raced on the SBX track and darkhorse Chip Linton riding in his first Nationals SBX made finals. Chip took 5th and that is one of the coolest things I've heard out here. Nice Job. Less pleased but still proud I hope, are Josh Cohen and mason Geils. Mace slipped in time trials and missed the cut-off to brackets by one. I know he wanted a piece of those heats but it was a success to reach Nationals already. Josh rode strong through trials and one round but had an issue in round two and did not return to semis like last year. Josh is still in hot pursuit of the Overall Combined title going into tomorrow's Slalom.
I know I missed someone somewhere and apologize with emphasis but I have one more captains meeting to make and some photos to load. Thanks for checking in.
