Finn was on it at the Next Generation Qualifier on Monday and despite the gnarly melt freeze and no warm-up he managed to get one of the three spots at the LBS in two weeks. Whistler groms grabbed two of the three spots and the reception from the Wash locs was chilly. Time to sharpen edges and find a wax guru! Hope to see some of you there in Feb.

Two weekends and two slopestyle comps in a row. Finn won 11 & under last week and 13 & under this weekend with some good kids in the mix from Vancouver. Highlight of his day today was stomping his first ever Misty 5 (corked 540) after trying it for the first time on Friday while sick as a dog and making it around 360. His winning run was: back lip 180, cab 1 tail, method, misty 5, back board- gap-backboard 180, front board, scoring him the highest point total of all snowboarders in all categories. Still undefeated in slopestyle.

 We have a spot in the U11 Mt Baker Banked Slalom qualifier in a couple of weeks so that is the next big event we are looking forward to.

Finn Finestone had a great season riding Mountain Bikes, racing BMX and freestyle. Highlights of his summer were participating in the Deep Summer Photo Challenge at Crankworx where his team won third place, Canadian BMX Grand Nationals where he finished seventh in the main event and third overall for Canadian 9-year-old experts and a list of firsts that he is unable to recall!

Finn Finestone and Ian Morrison rock Whistler

Another great video of Evolution team riders Finn Finestone and Ian Morrison!

Finn and Ian are both born and bred Whistler-ites. It is a beautiful place to grow up and there are a lot of great influences here. Both riders were noticed at a young age by Evolution Whistler and recieve as much help and free service that they need!

Twenty-one year old Ian Morrison is a true Whistler legend, and a nine year old Finn Finestone is well on his way. Despite their age difference, watch them tear apart the Whistler Bike Park.

Finn takes the win  for the 13 & under at Snowcross

Finn decided to try a hand at Snowcross this weekend at the Whistler Blackcomb 13 & under Snowboard Cross event. There was a decent turnout of riders this time with some coming up from Vancouver.

Saturday was training and time trials where Finn posted the fastest time of any snowboarder by 2 full seconds. In Sunday's four on four heats he won top spot taking home the gold medal. Looks like BMX racing has a strong crossover value to gated snowboard racing, needless to say Finn was super stoked.

Finn's Fantastic Summer Season

We went to the Canadian Grand Nationals for BMX this weekend and he did really well. BMX racing is a mix of highs and lows and this weekend was no exception! In two years of racing Finn went 32 straight wins and blasted through Novice and Intermediate classes, finally moving to expert in late July. His first encounter with 8 experts was in Kelowna where he failed to make any of his main events. This is common for new experts, most spend a year or so adjusting to the new level of competition, often missing the mains.

Finn's Finestone Moto Win

This weekend was his second race event with the experts and there were a number of American kids up in addition to the Canadian regulars. This group has been dominated by five kids for some time and Finn was certainly not seen as a threat. On Friday he managed to make his main event and finished off the podium in a respectable fifth. Saturday was the last National points race of the year, Finn raced well and was on his way to the main when he got disqualified for moving over in the final straight. (all time low!). Sunday was the Grand National finally for the season worth more points (and bigger trophies) than all the other races. It was obvious Finn was out for redemption when he blasted out of the second moto in first beating a rack of the best racers. In the main event he was in third place behind two American kids when they crashed in the second turn. Finn managed to avoid them and pulled into first, in the third corner the #1 Canadian kid caught him and ran him up over the berm, his mountain bike skills kicked in and he monster trucked through the soft dirt and pulled back onto the track, losing some momentum but holding on for third place at the line. I think the dad's of the regular five were pretty surprised to see the kid with no national ranking and no team affiliation give their kids a run for the money. Next season will be interesting indeed.

As an aside Finn was also the top fundraiser in Canada for the Race for Life cancer research event. One of his bike mentors Nick Geddes was diagnosed with leukaemia this summer and he worked hard to raise funds for cancer research. He was recognized by the Children's Hospital with a trophy for his efforts.
