In the past I have had a hard time to blog during JOI, but this year I find it kind of nice as I get some time away from everything in a calm place!
Last night was the first real training at JOI and I to hear PK say that the kicker is the best its ever been was amazing to hear as this is for sure the nr one focus on this event. Lots of triples were thrown and I can't wait to see what comes next from the boys, incredible to see how they stepped it up from yesterdays training session. You do see a big difference in the riders on a kicker like this, the really good ones can use the pop and get super hang time while a few guys seem to have a harder time, but its built for the best to push this sport to the next level so things are just like they should be!
I love this week and I enjoy organizing everything but I am glad that its not a two week event as I think I would pass out if I kept going in this pace for a few more days. Its non stop ringing from 6am until 2am and even if I try to rest as much as I can, I am still involved with everything as I am terrible to let go, but this is my baby and I want to make sure everything is perfect so I guess I can sleep when I am dead! perfect skies here in Åre today so we should be looking forward to another epic night! Below are some personal blog pics from Johan Matti, but for more pics from Bakke and the video, check out the JOI blog!
