Van­cou­ver Is­land na­tive Jordie is known to most as a big-moun­tain freerider. What’s not such com­mon knowl­edge is that, be­fore all that, he was a se­ri­ously flat-out down­hill racer, who rep­re­sented Canada at the World Cham­pi­onships and fin­ished in an im­pres­sive 11th place at the Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup in 2003. A num­ber of years of suc­cess­ful slopestyle com­pe­ti­tion fol­lowed, in­clud­ing a ‘best trick’ win at Crankworx Whistler in 2012. These days, be­sides the Rough AF crazi­ness, Jordie fo­cuses his at­ten­tions on the FEST Se­ries events.
