You become what you think about all day long - Earl Nightingale

 

"Since entering into snowboard contests in 2018, and joining elite training teams for the first time in my life, I have travelled to National, Continental, and World Cup races.  

The Olympic year is on the horizon and with it brings many new opportunities for races and competitive training."

In the 2020 season, Kennedy surpassed the minimum World Cup criteria and finished 9th overall in North America 

About:

Kennedy hosted a LIVE Stream event and Silent Auction through trellis.org/journey-to-olympics on Saturday September 11th.  The event was successful in covering some pre-season costs.  Kennedy invites you to cast your vote in an ongoing Podium Prediction Poll. 

 

The Podium Prediction Poll is a fun way to raise funds and build momentum towards Kennedy's goal of winning gold at the Olympics.  Kennedy has been training as a snowboardcross rider for a short 3 years & would love your help in making it to

World Stage Podiums.

Do you think Kennedy could win Gold, Silver or Bronze this season? 

"I'm currently located in Pitztal, Austria for pre-season training with BC Provincial snowboardcross team.   I have finished two training blocks already; first in Saas Fee, Switzerland where I had access to an sbx track, followed by some freeride & carving training in Hintertux, Austria.  

I'm currently preparing for the first race of my season - The Pitztal Europa Cup where I expect to finish in the top 1/3 of the field and lock in my spot on the World Cup Tour for the 2021/22 season.

I feel so fortunate to have a growing community of people who have helped me travel across continental borders, and continue to make this dream into a reality.   It's a blessing to be able to share this ambitious energy."
