I just got home after a crazy trip out to Shanghai, where I was invited to compete in the 45th World Cup stop. It was so much fun riding out at the cable with all my friends from other countries, and the standard of riding was insane! The weather was pretty nice for most of the week, apart from on the day of the semi finals, and the finals! During the qualifications I was put in a heat with Lior Sofer and Im San which i thought was a really tough heat, I managed to land both my runs, and qualify through in second place behind Lior. That evening we went into Shanghai city which was a rather odd experience. As soon as we got off the train we were asked by about 5 chinese people to have photos with them, as they had never seen white people before. We did a little bit of sightseeing before returning back to the hotel to prepare for the competition the next day. When the day of the semi finals came I was put in a heat with: Leroy Ney, Guenther Oka, Szebasztian Szolath, Liam Rundholz, Christopher Klein, Dominik Guhrs and Sam De Haan. Unfortunately I crashed my second run and so was unable to make it through to the finals, but had so much fun riding with everybody! Met so many new cool people and great to catch up with old friends. Hopefully will get invited again next year!
