I am a bit late in getting this post up, but I wanted to share some of the amazing content that was generated during the 2013 World Heli Challenge. I was not sure whether or not I was going to compete, but a last minute phone call had me running out the door to attend the rider’s meeting in just 15 minutes. From there, it was two weeks of filming and fun.
Unfortunately, the competition did not run for both days and the results were taken just off the freestyle day rather than a combined score with the extreme day. We only had two runs and I was stoked with both of mine as I landed all my tricks. My second run was good enough to put me in third place behind Kiwi snowboard legend Will Jackways and X-Games Gold medalist, Antti Autti.
I have posted a few photos below, both my own and some from the World Heli Challenge. At the bottom of this post, you will find all of the World Heli Challenge Edits. There is a lot to take in, but I do recommend checking out each videographer’s perspective on the event.
Better late than never…. Here I waltzed up after my phone call just 15 minutes before letting me know I was in!

The method never fails in competition.
Another TC pow day with the posse.
Stoked to be on the podium in third place!
Lachlan Humphreys and I stoked to bring home the bacon!
