QUOTES
Karen Kobayashi

It was a really nice, well-built course. The start was really fun and the weather was really nice, so I’m pretty excited about the way it all went.

Schuyler Caleb McFall
I thought it was awesome all the way through. Each turn was there and it was amazing going through the entire course. It was great getting after it with all the competitors too.

Hailey Langland
The competition went really well. It was so much fun—one of the most fun events I’ve ever been to. The course was absolutely perfect; I’ve never hit jumps like that before.

Brandon Davis
It was a little hot and slushy in the morning, but the park crew salted the jumps and fixed the landings for finals and everything was running real nice. The course was really fun.

Chloe Kim
Competing at Rev Tour was a really cool experience, and winning was a good boost before the U.S. Open.
