Last weekend the Burton AM Tour came to Milton Keynes, Sno!zone. As it was the only leg of the tour to come to the UK, I wanted to make sure I could enter.
We set off early Saturday morning at 6am; it takes us about 2 ½ hours to get there. I was still tired from the night before as I’d entered the Natural Born Riders, slopestyle, competition at Castleford Sno!zone. I managed to get there for the 9am registration and got straight out on the slope. The set up was good; there was a shark fin, step up box, side on down rail, a c box and a few other smaller rails. Everyone rode well and I was pleased with my result of 1st in the kid’s men.
Once prize giving had finished I had an hour to grab a pizza, before the start of the Burton Black Metal competition, I was starving by this time! 7pm quickly came round and I was back riding on the slope, having ridden rails for hours I was starting to get a little tired but managed to get through to the super final and get 2nd overall. I had a great weekend.
