Right now he’s just surprised that he’s been nominated for the TransWorld Riders’ Poll Rookie of the Year Award. Chances of winning? Wait until March 5th to find out.
LJ: So are you going to qualify today?
SW: I hope so.
LJ: Where are you at now?
LJ: Where do you have to be to qualify?
SW: Fifteenth, so I’ve got five guys to go.
LJ: Five more guys and one more run. Are you nervous?
SW: Kind of.
LJ: Do you get nervous at contests?
SW: Sometimes, but not that much.
LJ: How many Grand Prix’s have you done?
SW: This is the first year I’ve been in them, so a couple.
LJ: What if you win the car?
SW: I’d try to drive it.
LJ: Would you give it to your Mom?
SW: Yeah probably, she’d like that.
LJ: What’s your trick for this pipe?
SW: Ah, probably a crippler.
Shaun didn’t end up qualifyig even though he’s pretty close to perfecting his pipe run that includes big airs, plus a McTwist to 700 to Haakonflip. He did do a damn good Crippler, but it wasn’t enough to put him in the finals. I guess that new car is going to have to wait, Mom.
