Jon Watt - Snowmass

Jon Watt – Snowmass

Snowmass was a good weekend!  I got 3rd in the 4X and 2nd in the Super-D!  The 4X final was pretty intense.  Ross was in gate 1, I was in gate 2, Peter was in gate 3, and Erik Nelson was in gate 4.  I got a pretty good start and tried to shut the inside door on Ross early because I knew he was going to push everyone out in the first corner.  But Ross is a big guy and it’s tough to shut the door from the outside.  I ended up getting pinched out between him and Peter, then I had to protect my line from Erik.  I was really happy with this considering I have been training only for xc.

 

 
Here are the results:
