Mauritius had been on my bucket list for ages so it was super cool for the GKA to take us there. With great conditions and breathtaking views, it’s my number one location this year. I was feeling super confident go-ing into this event. After my 3rd place in Fuerteventura, I was determined to train hard and secure 1st place in Mauritius.
The first round I got through without a problem, but then in the semi finals I got a bit scared. I crashed my first four tricks which meant I had to make the next three perfectly in order to make it into the finals. The judging criteria allows for seven trick attempts with the best four counting.
It was a very stressful moment, but I was able to keep it together and pull through into the finals where I got my best scoring heat this year. All of the competitors were riding really well. Rita Arnaus fought through the competition and ended up in 2nd place, she really showed off her skills. I’m excited to see what challenges she will be bringing to the next event and I’m motivated to see what I can pull off in Morocco, the final event of the year!
