Laura and I went over to Leysin to take part in the Ladies First Challenge Tour stop there, it was the perfect day for a comp, sunshine and new snow, hot but not too hot to make things slow. The course was a bit more ‘serious’ than we’d been expecting, hehe, but was so much fun once we dared to test everything.

At the start there was a wide flat bar and then a C box then on to this big pipe thing with a big ollie on, it made me a little fearful to be honest, I had no idea what it would be like to ride, especially as the jump was straight after it, no room for much error. I’m not sure how big the jump was, it was a little bit ‘whippy’ so took a bit of getting used to, after a few runs I decided spinning might actually be the better option on there anyway oh and then at the bottom there were two picnic table things to slide on.

First run in quali’s was good for me, can’t actually remember what I did on the rails, haha, but landed on my feet and then did a melon on the jump that was boned right out, I love them soooo much when they go perfectly like that, you have all the time in the world to point your front foot right out and down at the landing, that’s got to be one of the most satisfying feelings, flying off a jump and tweeking the hell out of a melon grab! hehe Then down at the picnic table I did a 1/2 cab on 5/0 thing…not sure if that’s the real name, I like to make up names for tricks on rails anyway! haha

Then next jump I decided if the rails went well I would spin on the jump, they did, so I did, but didn’t have enough speed for making the landing, I bounced off the knuckle and into what should have been an epic nose dive in the landing….but totally landed on my feet and rode out, hahahahaha, it was  unbelievable! Luckily Laura was on the lift watching so didn’t miss it either! hahaha

Think the next run went well, I mixed it up  little bit on the rails then landed a fs3 stalefish…this qualified me first, stoked on that!

Finals didn’t go so well, I was feeling a bit tired and my knee has decided it likes to swell up and stop bending very much when I ride all day so my first safety run was ok, then I slammed on the next run and then overshot on the next 360 then my last run went really well, same as in qualis. But I needed 2 good runs to do well, I only had one good run and 1 safety run so came 4th, still happy with that though.

The whole day was great fun, just how a comp should feel, nice little day trip for me and Laura.

Laura came 2nd with some snazzy twizzles off the rails, some frontside sliding on them and some lovely fs360 indys.

Here’s some pictures from the event-

Last weekend Stef and I went for a weekend to Mayrhofen, Austria for the TTR3 star Skull Candy Sistasessions competition.
It was great to meet up with the local riders, especially nice to see Charlie our host and Claire Frost, UK shredmaster of fs7’s off her toes : )
The comp was really good fun, the sun came out and we all rode the course having some fun on the side on box or rail, flat down box or rail and then 2 kickers 12-14m long. The standard of riding was really high, there were spins of all directions stomped and local girl Tinni was busting out her bs5 which is all inverted and RAD!
I managed to make finals by the skin of my teeth with a run where I crashed on my bs180 but made my fs3 stale and had a fs lip to fakie on the box and 5-0 on the flat down box.
In the final I almost managed to stomp the run but messed up the lipslide a little and then  scetched on my bs1 round to 3, not ideal, but stoked on a good day all the same : )
Ended up in 14th place and was really, really happy for it.
Then there was a jam session on the box by the comp tent, it was brilliant fun, we’d been sessioning the small boxes with the locals the day before so had some new tricks to try outin this session, Stef was on fire with some siiiccckkk fs slides and some crazy spinny cab 270’s on, she won a whole new outfit of jeans, T and a hat and some more goodies too! so she was stoked!
We stayed for the afterparty and then kidnapped Claire so we could show Avoriaz her fs7 haha.
Week over now, it’s been great, Roxy rider Aimee Fuller was here too and we had some really productive days learning new tricks in the parks here : )
Off to Adelboden tomorrow for a Nikita Slope Comp which is part of the Nikiata Chickita Swiss Tour.
Pic from the Sistasessions of my fs3 stale, not sure why it looks upside down, must be their lens!
Here’s the full writeup from the TTR news page-

The snowy slopes of Mayrhofen, Austria glimmered in the sunshine as 50 girls from thirteen different countries gathered for the Skullcandy Sista Sessions. In one action-packed day the participants could join in on various activities: beginner lessons, small jam sessions and photo shoots, while the main focus was on the 3Star Swatch TTR Slopestyle competition. It was 19-year old up and coming ripper from Slovenia Urška Pribošič who deservedly took the top spot on the podium, while local Zillertal girl Chirstina “Tini” Gruber came in second and Claire Frost (GBR) in third. The title of best non-sponsored rider and a one-year clothing sponsorship with Billabong Girls went to the delighted Argentinean Chani Michaux who placed 13th.

The Vans Penken Park was groomed to perfection and consisted of two sets of rails and boxes, an 11m kicker followed by a 14m kicker. Urska’s super stylish winning run started off with a 50/50 on the top rail, a backside boardslide to frontside boardslide on the flat down box, then a huge backside 360 tailgrab on the Billabong kicker and a frontside 540 on the Skullcandy kicker that sealed her victory. Riding against some of Europe’s top-notch riders like Liza Filzmoser (AUT) and Basa Stevulova (SVK), Urška was happy and overwhelmed by her win “I can’t believe it because all the girls were riding so good. I’m stoked!” She had made her way to the invite list by winning the Skullcandy Sista Sessions Video Clip Contest, so a double victory for Urška!

Tini, who finished closely in second showed her skills on her home stomping ground with a backside boardslide to fakie and a 270 frontboard in the rail section to a big frontside 360 and stylish a backside 540 on the kickers. Claire nailed a solid run consisting of a frontside boardslide, gap 50/50, front side 360 melon grab and a huge backside 360. The happy top 5 riders all walked away with cheques and a pair of brand new Skullcandy headphones. The riding seen in the park impressed Head Judge Nina Rydelek, “We had a very good level on both rails and kickers. The girls really pushed each other to try 720’s, we have a good rookie winner and all the girls who went through the qualification really stepped it up against the invited riders.” The top 3 girls won a place on the invited riders list of the 3Star Oakley Girlsessions in Ruka, Finland from 8-11 April 2010, while the top 5 are invited to the 3Star Shred Down Austrian Masters.

The Skullcandy Sista Sessions stayed true to its roots and included all levels of girls snowboarding with pro and the up-and-coming riders side by side. Also the beginners had the chance to learn all sorts of basic tricks with the guiding hand of the local SMT Snowboard School in the “Sweet Dream – Newbie Zone” and afterwards showed off their newly learned skills winning armfuls of prizes during the beginner box jam session. One of the stars of the day was 7-year old Annika Morgen (AUT), who was the youngest participant of the day and was killing it!

The busy chill zone featured a Christa Leonard photo exhibition brought to us by our sponsor Les Ettes and the popular waffle stand from Vans. Finally a “Hot chocolate Box Jam Session”, presented by Billabong, ended the day in style. We would like to thank all the girls who made the Skullcandy Sista Sessions a true success, not only by taking part in the competition, but also by creating such a friendly atmosphere, and pushing each other to progress.

Big thanks goes out to our sponsors who made the event possible: Skullcandy, Mayrhofner Bergbahnen, Billabong Girls, Vans, Les Ettes, Sweet Dream and SMT Snowboard School. Watch out for our media partner magazine Cooler where you can soon read about the event and see exclusive photos!

Video from the Skullcandy Sista Sessions will be online shortly on http://www.sistasessions.com while photos are already up the Sista Sessions Facebook Fan Page! Upload your photos of the day to the Fan Page and you may be one of the lucky winners of the “best photo” competition for the public.

Phew, I’m back from the Roxy Chicken Jam and I feel really happy to be alive!

haha, no it wasn’t THAT bad, but the jumps were massive for me after 8 months off, I am so happy with myself for managing to ride them and actually do some spins after all that time. The major factor was, these jumps, although big, were absolutely perfect in shape, the middle one was about 16 meters long and running into it felt like the speed fo light, but taking off was sooooo smooth, I was kicking myself for not getting a bit more riding time in before this so I could do a bit more than grab off it, but alas I felt spinning on such a big kicker first week of the winter would be a little ‘risky’ so say the least! haha

The first kicker was fine though and easy for my fs3 stales, the set up was a bit tricky, box or rail to icey landing to kicker all on top of each other, you had a split second to set up it felt, not too good for confidence, but it was only 10 meters so wasn’t hard to handle.

The practice day was the best, I found Anais Cettou at the bottom of the course and she had already hit the two top jumps so I followed her in for speed on both of them, then I tested the bottom kicker for her to follow in. It’s so nice to have someone to ride with when you aren’t in your element, I’m so lucky she was there.

The Qualifiers day wasn’t too bad either, the atmosphere at these all girls comps is always so great, supportive and fun, it’s always good to be a part of it. There was quite a bit of waiting around for runs, we got 4 all together in the 2 hour session, I had 1 clean run in the whole lot, luckily, I was just happy to be getting some nice 3’s on the top jump and managed a few melons and bs to switch 50/50 on the bottom up down picnic table jib. UK ripper Claire Frost had an amazing final quali run including a fs7 melon off her TOES on the massive booter to bs3 on the bottom kicker, she is such a great rider she even managed this with the flu! go on Claire!

I knew I wouldn’t be able to ride my best after all the time off snow but definitely felt happy with what I managed : )

The guest house me and Nils stayed in was great too, lovely, much needed sauna in the afternoons and a great breakfast in the morning, yum yum.

I filmed the finals day and will make a little movie of what I have for you asap where you’ll see young UK rider Aimee Fuller ripping up the course on the finals day, she hadn’t been off the kickers on the practice day, then BAM backflip on the 1st kicker to bs3 on the booter to frontflip off the launchbox!!! that girl is brilliant! : )

Best part is that I got a picture on the TTR news page of the qualifiers day! STOKED!

Last Monday Laura Berry, Steff Nurding and I drove over to Val Disere to a Pro Female Slopestyle Comp, the weather was amazing, even though the forecast said it would be bad.

I was particularly happy that my car key turned up in the recycle bin after looking everywhere for it at 5.30 am- long story, don’t ask!!

The course was brilliant fun and I had the best run I’ve had in a comp this winter, bs 180 japan to 1/2 cab indy tweek to fs 360 stalefish, and something on the rails and boxes to stay alive, hehe. Laura had some brilliant runs with one including a bs 3 to fs 5 to some snazzy stuff on the rails and boxes, a 360 off the banana box being one, gaining her 2nd place and 300€ for her troubles (straight into her ‘fix the car fund’)

Anais Cetou came 1st, deserviedly, with a sweet bs 3 indy to fs 5 to something probably involving frontside on the rails (can you tell that I couldn’t see the rail at the bottom of the course from where I was to drop in? hehe) The other girls were riding really well too, it is always a pleasure to see how fun girls comps are, competitive in such a positive way, everyone was having a great time and we were all so stoked that the sun was shining and the course was so nice.

The jumps were big, 11, 12 and 10m long, but they didn’t feel it at all, I’m surprised to hear that, even though I rode them all morning myself! hehe judging distances really isn’t my forte, if it is a nice jump it feels small, if it’s not so nice it feels super big as far as I’m concerned!

Here’s the BoardLadies.com article written by Lucy Paltz (comp organiser, Roxy rider and lovely girl)

it’s in French, sorry, I’m no translator, but with my small amount of french skills I can see there are some really nice things written about us, which is nice!

And look, I got the title pic! stoked!

08/03/2009 24 heures inside au Princess of the Park
7 pro-rideuses lâchées à Val d’Isère dans un park parfaitement shapé pour gagner 1500€ et une place dans un gros shooting avec hélico, ça donne…ça !
En France, aucun event ne permet aux pro-rideuses de se retrouver, de rider et de shooter entre elles. Le Princess of the Park était donc l’occasion rêvée avec un format inédit : un contest sur invitation ouvrant sur un gros photoshoot les 2 jours suivants. Dans la short list, 7 girls seulement, françaises, suisses, britanniques…
10 étaient invitées au départ, mais entre les blessures des unes et les soucis techniques des autres, ce sera finalement à 7 et dans une ambiance intimiste que la journée se déroulera….

Flash back.

“Who’s that girl ? ” Petit portrait des 7 Girls invitées…
Anaïs Cettou
Nationalité : Suisse
Date de naissance : 18/06/1985
Sponsors : Nitro, Static Outerwear, My Way Dream Store

Anaïs est une rideuse connue en Suisse, mais elle manque encore de médiatisation en France. Et c’est bien dommage car cette fille, très stylée, est aussi une rideuse technique et engagée. Elle a d’ailleurs gagné tous les contests auxquels elle a participé cette saison, comme par exemple le Girls Gone Wild ou le Nikita Goodie Lady de Thyons.
Quand elle n’est pas en compet’, Anaïs passe aussi beaucoup de temps à filmer avec la boîte de production White Out.

Laura Berry
Nationalité : Britannique
Date de naissance :13/12/1988
Sponsors : Red Bull, Ride, West Beach, TSA

Snowboard Magazine dit d’elle qu’elle est la future star du snowboard britannique. On veut bien y croire, car Laura a du talent à revendre. Rails ou kickers, rien ne lui pose de problèmes, elle conjugue les shootings vidéos (elle a filmé pour Chunkyknit’s productions notamment) et compétitions.

Marion Gouwy
Nationalité : Française
Date de naissance : 30/01/1988
Sponsors : Imperium, Santa Cruz, Level

Cette jeune pyrénéenne va certainement devenir l’une des filles les plus fortes de la scène snow française dans les prochaines années. Révélée cette année par Imperium, Marion a bien l’intention de faire de plus en plus parler d’elle. Technique et engagée, Marion n’a pas froid aux yeux et compte bien progresser encore ! Attention…

Alexandra Barrère
Nationalité : Française
Date de naissance : 12/07/1984
Sponsors : RipCurl, Imperium, Dragon

Egérie européenne Rip Curl, Alexandra est l’une des filles « phare » de la scène snow française. Elle a d’ailleurs été nominée dans la catégorie « Meilleure rideuse française 08 » aux Snowboard Collective Awards. De retour de blessure, Alex n’a plus qu’une envie: retrouver son niveau et faire beaucoup d’images vidéos sur la fin de saison. C’est une fille très stylée, notamment en rails.

Anouck Grau
Nationalité : Suisse
Date de naissance : 25/09/1988
Sponsors : Hammer, Chosen, Von Zipper, Neff

Anouck est en sport études à Annecy. Cette jeune rideuse pleine de vie aime les contests et les parks fats. Après un début d’hiver passé aux US, elle vient de rentrer en Europe, où elle a terminé 3ème du Tricks or Treat contest TTR et où elle a eu le Best Trick du Nikita Goodie Lady. Elle va ensuite consacrer sa fin de saison à filmer du côté de Laax.

Gilly Seagrave
Nationalité : Britannique
Date de naissance : 15/12/1979
Sponsors : Protest, Atomic, Eka, Adidas

Gilly est l’une des premières girls britannique à avoir investi la scène européenne. A presque 30 ans, elle est toujours aussi motivée et stylée. Elle cherche toujours le grab parfait, elle tweake à fond ses tricks, et aime les gros kickers. Elle a aussi fondé les Our Camps, des snow camps pour les filles. Rideuse, coach, mais aussi créatrice de bonnets et mitaines pour sa marque Eka Wear, Gilly n’arrête pas une seconde !

Stefani Nurding
Nationalité : Britannique
Date de naissance: 02/04/1988
Sponsors : Grenade, Love Inc.

Stefani a commencé le snowboard il y a seulement deux ans. Tout de suite, elle s’est mise au freestyle et notamment au pipe. Le slopestyle est venu après, mais elle a déjà un bon petit niveau que plus d’une lui envierait. Elle passe la saison à Morzine, pour rider le plus possible cet hiver.

Dimanche 1er Mars, 17h 00 :
Les premières arrivées à l’hôtel sont Alex Barrère et sa team mate Imperium Marion Gouwy. Après avoir ridé toute la journée le park de Val d’Isère, elles s’installent tranquillement avant l’arrivée des autres. Anouck Grau et Anaïs Cettou, les deux suissesses, débarqueront à leur tour un peu plus tard dans la soirée, tandis que les autres arriveront le lendemain.

22h 00 : On s’installe (les rideuses, les filles du staff de chez Roxy (1er partenaire de l’event) : Solenne et Diane, et moi-même, co-organisatrice) au bar de l’hôtel pour discuter et décider d’un plan B en cas de mauvais temps le lendemain. La météo est plus que pessimiste pour la semaine à venir. Décision est prise de se rabattre sur une jam session rail si la visibilité ne permet pas de rider le slopestyle. Mais on croise les doigts !

Lundi 2 Mars, 8h00 :
Grand beau ! La météo nous offre un joli cadeau, un soleil même pas voilé pour cette matinée du Princess of The Park. C’est donc dans la bonne humeur que je mets en place le slopestyle avec les shapeurs. Banderoles, oriflammes et drapeaux Roxy flottent gaiement.

10h15 : Arrivée des 7 rideuses sur le park. Il manque à l’appel les deux suédoises, Mathilda Pilfalk (égérie européene Elan) et Anna Nilssons, qui eurent quelques démêlés avec leur voiture et restèrent bloquées à Morzine, et deux autres filles.
Les 7 girls présentes commencent les trainings, histoire de se familiariser avec le slope prévu.

11h 45 : Début de la jam session. Les filles ont une heure pour faire tous les runs qu’elles veulent, les juges les évaluant sur une impression d’ensemble. Le set up ? Un rail banana, une box montée-descente, une table de 11 m, une seconde table de 12 mètres, puis, au choix des rideuses, un long rail plat descente, ou une nouvelle table de 10 mètres. « Nickel ! » selon Anouck , toujours souriante…

12h15 : Laura Berry lâche des gros 2.7 out sur le banana, Gilly atomise le rail plat-descente avec des jolis tailslides, Marion Gouwy replaque de super 180 back et des 3.6.

Au start, l’ambiance est top ! Les filles se marrent, discutent de leurs runs, de leurs erreurs, s’encouragent. Il n’y a aucune rivalité, au contraire. « Ca fait du bien, explique Alex Barrère. Sur les gros contests, comme le Roxy Chiken Jam, il y a de l’enjeu et du stress. Au départ, personne ne se parle. Ici, on discute, on s’amuse, on rencontre d’autres rideuses. C’est fun. » « Et le park est énorme, varié, trop bien shapé, c’est une tuerie » renchérit Marion…

Cliquez pour agrandir ! - Anaïs Cettou- Cliquez pour agrandir ! - Marion Gouwy -
Cliquez pour agrandir ! - Anouck Grau- 12h45 : La jam session se termine, il est temps, les filles sont crevées, elles ont tout donné. Les juges sont quant à eux satisfaits : « On a eu un vrai spectacle, elles ont carrément bien ridé. Et sur une heure, c’est facile de juger, donc le classement est clair et sans litiges »
Ca tombe bien, car le ciel s’étant sournoisement couvert tout au long de la matinée, la finale, prévue sur une partie plus fat du park, a tous les risques d’être annulée.
13h00 : Petit barbec’ sous les premiers flocons. On décide d’annuler la finale pour de bon, question de sécurité. Les girls se jettent sur les hamburgers, sauf Gilly, végétarienne. « C’est une bonne idée cet event pour les pro-rideuses, apprécie Anaïs. On ride souvent un peu trop avec des gars, ou chacune de notre côté, et là c’est génial de pouvoir se rencontrer. » « Et l’émulsion, être toutes ensembles, nous pousse à nous dépasser, à progresser. C’est top ! » ajoute Gilly.
Cliquez pour agrandir ! - Alex Barrère- 14h 00 : Free session improvisée sur le wall et le rainbow. Les filles sont encore trop motivées ! Deux photographes sont à pied d’œuvre pour les shooter, elles s’éclatent malgré le brouillard qui envahit le park. Elles rident sans arrêt jusqu’à 15h, heure à laquelle on se replie vers le chalet d’altitude la Folie Douce, pour la remise des prix.
Cliquez pour agrandir ! 15h30 : La Folie Douce, restaurant d’altitude, se transforme tous les jours, sur les coups de 15h, en dancefloor géant, en « Voile Rouge » (boîte de jour, sur la plage à Saint Tropez ndlr) hivernale. La direction nous a réservé une petite salle à l’intérieur, histoire que l’on s’entende parler pour la remise des prix ! La première place et les 1000€ reviennent à Anaïs Cettou, la suissesse. « Elle a carrément bien ridé, explique Olivier Noiret, chef juge. Elle a tous ses tricks, elle prend des risques, elle a du style, j’ai notamment adoré ses 5.4, bref elle gagne et c’est plus que mérité. »
En grande forme aussi, la seconde, Laura Berry, la girl de chez Red Bull, précise et créative, et qui repart avec 300€. Pour compléter le podium, une frenchie, Marion Gouwy, qui se voit offrir 200€, de quoi rembourser –un peu- l’avant de sa Twingo, dont on lui a volé tout le capot !
Pour les autres ce sera une distribution générale de lots, par Roxy, et de bière, par Anaïs, qui paie sa tournée …
Pour le reste du classement, on retrouve, en 4ème et 5ème , Alex Barrère et Anouck Grau, en 6ème Gilly Seagrave et enfin la toute jeune Stefani Nurding, deux saisons seulement dans les pattes…
17h 00 : On redescend, dans un brouillard si dense que l’on y voit pas à deux mètres. Les filles s’échangent adresses mail et numéros de téléphone, et se jurent de se revoir très bientôt pour rider ensemble.
Les cinq premières se retrouveront de toute façon pour le photoshoot les 7 et 8 Mars, et les deux premières, Anaïs et Laura, sur les gros modules de la section hélico….

Un grand merci à Roxy pour son soutient, à toutes les rideuses pour leur motivation et leur enthousiasme, aux juges (Oliv N et Oliv G, Vincent et Ludo), à toute l’équipe de DC ValPark, toujours si bien shapé, à la Folie Douce pour leur accueil, à Val d’Isère, ainsi, bien sûr qu’à Bichon, photographe officiel et talentueux de la session.

I have a mini interview on the Goneboarding site this month, here it is (love that they call me ‘lovely’! hehe)-

For this latest issue of the GB Jibber Jabber we speak with the lovely Gilly Seagrave…
Q1: Your Details:
Name: Gilly Seagrave
Country of residence: France in Winter, Sweden in Summer
Board: Atomic Fallen Angel
Bindings: Burton Escapade’s
Boots: 32 Vela’s
Outerwear: Protest
Sponsors: Atomic, Protest, Adidas, Eka, Protec

Q2: Marmite
Love it

Q3: Pirates or Ninjas?
Pirates, or actually I think the character Daniel Day Lewis played in Gangs of New York is way cooler than either, the rough Dickensian crook, his style was super cool – move over pirates!

Q4: Truth or Dare?
Dare every time!

Q5: Trick or Treat?
Trick, I love treats but tricks make me laugh. Jenny (Jones) once played a joke on us by hiding under the balcony with all of our computers and the TV from the apartment while we were out riding, all because she was home with an injury and had cabin fever!

The funniest thing was that we didn’t realise anything was wrong till after we’d had a cup of tea and a sit down for about half an hour, she was down there for ages! hahaha

I usually make the girls watch horror films too when we’re away, I love getting scared and then scaring them, once I hid under Emma’s (Rogers) duvet so I could re-enact the scene from the Grudge, she took way too long in the bathroom though, I almost suffocated and gave up waiting, when I told her she reminded me how sore it would be to get kicked in the face, haha.

Q6: What was the best thing before sliced bread?
Puppies (since sliced bread too!)

Q7: Which came first the Chicken or the egg?
I’ve actually really thought about this! Hahaha, it’s a conundrum, is that what you call it???

Q8: You must DATE, MARRY and KILL one of each of these lovely gents:
Pete Doherty: Kill, and enjoy doing it a little bit.
Jeremy Clarkson: Date, eughhhh!
John Major: Marry, then divorce the tory ba**ard and bleed him for all he’s worth.

Q9: If (A) Chuck Norris, (B) Bruce Lee, (C) Mr. T and (D) Giant Haystacks were thrown into a locked cage and had to fight their way out. Who would be the last man standing?
B (Bruce Lee) would be the last one standing, but Chuck would have given him a run for his money I bet. BA would be the first one down, he’s crap!

Q10: If you had to feature in ONE of the following cartoons, (A) He-Man, (B) Thundercats or (C) Bravestar, which would you pick and what would your character be called?
Thundercats, I loved that! Or maybe He-Man because I hate that Hammerman character. I hated him because he had no neck. I was pretty unreasonable as a kid, haha. So maybe I should be a baddy in He-Man who kills HammerMan called BitchRa or something hehehe.
