As with any young athlete, there comes a time when you outgrow your local stomping grounds and seek bigger and badder objectives.

Where did it land him? With three insane segments in Magic Hour and a nomination for IF3 Standout Male Rider of the Year.

Yet again, his skiing stands out among the crowd, especially when you realize the kid’s barely got his learner’s permit.
