Aleksi Laitinen starts the season out right! The young Fin rider takes the win in the final round of the JTS City Rail Tour, last weekend in Helsinki, Finland.
A recap in the words of the champ:
« I had a great night yesterday. We had lots of fun skiing with all the best riders there. Finals were held down by 8 o'clock and we heard that there was me, Oskari Raitanen and AJ Kemppainen in the super-finals. Level of skiing was on top notch and crowd was cheering like hell. I was in the mood that we should step it up and we all did our best.
We hit the rails for twenty minutes and the setup was on fire. I had good feeling on my skiing and I landed heaps of spins in and out on all the obstacles. AJ and Okko also did their best trying to reach the top spot.
The prize giving was held on a nightclub just next to the plaza. It really had full effect with stucked of people. They announced the winners and I thought it went well. Oskari got third, AJ second and I got first!
I was so stoked on the first victory of the season and I hope it will be as good season as it is now towards the end.
Now I'm about to pack my bags and enjoy Hame prod's film premiere. It's gonna be off the hook. I will forward you the link on the movie as soon as it is possible to download it in the internet. »
