Just heard from Erica and she is the new Women's Amateur National Champ!

We are very proud of her and proud to know her. Could not have happened to a nicer person.

Wow...Erica, (trying to do my best Ron Burgandy impression) I'm not even mad!...I'm impressed!

All joking aside, that is freakin' awesome. Josh is so right, it could not have happened to a nicer person. Anyone who has never had the chance to ride with Erica, boy are you missing out, she charges harder than most guys I know.

Congrats Erica, no one deserves it more. You ROCK!

Thane congrats on having a kick @ss girlfriend, I bet you are as proud as she is.

Yeah, I just talked to her on the phone she's pretty stoked. She says to me, "I got a BIG Trophy!" She really focused and worked hard the last couple weeks just for nationals. Looks like it paid off.

congrats Erica! Great Job!

We will have to ride together some day.

My wife spells her name the exact same way you do.

"Erica Burk" except she is not a rider, yet? I'm trying.

Again congratulations!

She's a ripper! I remember the 1st time I saw her ride at Elsi, it was... Well, let's just say I wasn't wanting to ride, after she finished.

Although I'm not from California, I want to say Congrat's to Erica as well. I got to know and ride with her while she was living in SLC, UT a couple of years ago.

She's one of the nicest person's I've ever met and I'm very proud of you Erica!

Hell yeah! Congrats Erica!!! The Ol Dixie Skier would be proud a national champ used to session behind her! You ripped a few years ago, can only imagine how much better you've gotten since then. The UT crew is def proud!

Congrats to Erica! Tell me, what does a run by the national amateur women's winner look like?
Old    Thane Dogg (thane_dogg)      Join Date: Jun 2002       08-26-2005, 5:43 PM Reply   
tantrum, hs backroll, ts backroll, hs 3, ts backroll to revert, couple sick grabs, couple 180's, and a sick taipan grab.

That sounds like quite a complete run! It is great to see that grabs are still a part of the game... and I'm totally impressed with any girl who does inverts!
