I was already on the island since early June working on some film projects so I was able to help build and see the barge come together for Jumpship. Helping work on the course I was honestly skeptical about some things, like the 3 containers tall drop onto the barge. Jordie Lunn has always seemed to build challenging courses to ride, and that would separate bike control from the foam pit riders. I was super keen to ride in this event after sitting out last year with my broken ankle. The weather delayed the contest until Sunday, but I was able to get the course figured out in practice and start putting together a run. The format was 3 runs, best 2 scores combined. Luckily for me I made it through the course my first two runs, scoring a 74.5 and putting myself in 6th place. I am stoked! Brandon was back from his injury and won Jumpship for his 2nd year in a row with 93.5 and Brett Rheeder not far off with a 91.
