Olympic Slopestyle Snowboarder Aimee Fuller, has spent part of this week at the Phillip McCallen Training Academy in Lisburn, Northern Ireland.
Tuesday - Off Road Preparation
Aimee had completed her CBT prior to traveling to the Sochi Winter Olympics last month and so only needed the minimum of coaching on Tuesday to get ready for the Off Road part of the test.
Wednesday - Off Road Test
The Off Road Test went "according to plan", passed with a clean sheet, not even a minor fault!
Thursday - On Road Preparation
The weather was very unkind today for Aimee's two hours of 'On Road' prep work. But the constant rain didn't stop this determined young lady! Aimee's instructor Roli commented "you can see why she so successful at her chosen sport, very brave and very focused!"
Earlier this year Aimee became one of the first women to land a double backflip (on a Snowboard) and so she is without question, as brave as they come!
Friday - On Road Test
Friday was the big day and the final part of the test - On Road! The weather was much kinder with blue skies and dry roads.
So Aimee "Smashed it!" Full A2 license in 4 days!
What's Next for Aimee?
On the snow - Aimee is off to the USA again shortly for the Community Cup at the Keystone Resort, Colorado, part of the World Snowboard Tour.
On two wheels - Well Aimee was planning on getting a KTM 390 Duke, but after completing her training and tests on it's bigger brother she's now thinking of the KTM 690 Duke!
Good luck Aimee, from all at the Phillip McCallen Training Academy.
