World Junior Freeride rankings 2017: 6th position. The conditions for the World Junior Freeride competitions were difficult this year. Chamonix 's competition was cancelled twice due to lack of snow and dangerous snowpack and it ended up never taking place. Jake was able to perform well enough to gain second place overall, despite this. His board sponsor let him down for new boards this season too, so on all of his runs he was on his previous season's park board. He currently has no sponsor. With this in mind Jake wanted to thank the Sports Council Wales for his Sports Grant 2016.
