Have you guys heard about Elena Corrigal? This fellow lady shredder hailing from our North American neighbor, Canada, has been KILLING it this race season, picking up first place in Women’s at every major race she’s been to thus far.

Yesterday was qualifying at Almabtrieb and she picked up three first place finishes and two second place finishes in OPEN QUALIFYING. Yeah, that’s right, against the BOYS at a big IDF race! This girl is a huge inspiration, not only for myself, but for many other skaters out there, boys and girls alike. She’s showing us that yes, girls CAN race against the guys, and yes, girls CAN beat the guys down the hill.

Congratulations Elena, we’re all rooting for you today!!
