Mont Orignal Salomon Jib Academy

Mar 3, 2011

Author: Iannick Brouillette

The 1st stop of the Salomon Jib Academy Tour 2011 went off last weekend at Mont-Orignal, Quebec. Great sunny weather but the wind-chill reminded us it was still February. Pro-rider Alexis Godbout came to coach the Jib Academy participants along with the local crew: Antoine Bourassa, Seb Eaves, Jen Crichton and I, as well as Phil Lavallé from D-Structure. Salomon even drove up their pick up truck full of demos to the middle of the park!

Athlete Meeting

 Just like every year, the Moose Park at Mont-Orignal was outstanding. The biggest jumps of East Quebec as well as rails and jibs!

After a quick warm-up (everyone was eager to go shred!) we started with our morning jam and quickly noticed some outstanding talents! High level of tricks were shown all day with a few doubles on the jumps and switch up everywhere on the rails. The 2 jams of the day went smoothly and coaches determined the top 15 riders for the final jam session.

Seb Eaves

The finals consisted of a 2 run format on the jumps and 2 run on the rails. Although a few riders felt the pressure during the finals, many impressed the judges with sick tricks and impressive spins. Francis Lamy who will be joining the Salomon pro team to Mammoth in May, was constant with solid trick on jumps and rails.

Results:

1 – Francis Lamy

2 – Ben Morissette

3 – Alexis Lalonde

4 – Felix Gaudreau

5 – Simon Gingras

Special shoot out to Emilie Seguin who was the only girl ripping it up in the park!

Podium


Le weekend dernier, nous avons amorcé la 5ieme saison du Salomon Jib Academy au Mont-Orignal, Québec.  Le soleil était de la partie, mais un vent froid nous a tout même rappelé que nous étions en Février.

Pour le premier stop, nous avons eu la visite du pro rider Alexis Godbout accompagné d’un crew enthousiaste: Antoine Bourassa, Seb Eaves, Jen Crichton, moi-même ainsi que Phil Lavallé du shop D-Structure.  Salomon s’est aussi amusé à conduire son pickup de démo jusque dans le park!

Comme à toutes les années, le Moose Park du Mont-Orginal était exceptionnel.  Les plus gros sauts de l’est du Québec ainsi que des rails et des jib pour s’amuser pendant des semaines.

Après un warm-up rapide (Tout le monde étaient pressé d’aller rider!), les quelques 60 participants nous ont montrés qu’ils étaient de niveau avec quelques doubles sur le saut principal et des switch-up de tout les sens sur les rails.  Les 2 jams de la journée ont étés sans pépins et nous ont permis de déterminer un top 15 pour les finales.

Les finales consistaient de 2 runs sur les sauts et 2 runs du coté des rails.  Malgré que le stresse semble s’être emparé de quelques un, plusieurs nous ont montré qu’ils étaient de niveau avec des spins impressionnants et stylés.

Francis Lamy, qui aura la chance d’aller à Mammoth en Californie, nous a montré qu’il était constant avec des tricks solides autant sur les sauts que sur les rails.  Voici le top 5 de la journée:

Top 5:

1 – Francis Lamy

2 – Ben Morissette

3 – Alexis Lalonde

4 – Felix Gaudreau

5 – Simon Gingras

Mention spéciale a Emilie Seguin qui était la seule fille dans le park !
