His Story.

During a competition at the end of 2005, Steve flipped upside down on a large jump and landed on his head, suffering a severe brain injury. Many thought it was the end of Steve's snowboarding career. Defying the odds with a miraculous recovery, Steve was medically cleared for competition five years later and eagerly returned to the slopes.

WARDJet is pleased to sponsor such a talented and big-hearted individual and we encourage you to join us as we watch Steve race to the top.

FIS North America Cup at Buck Hill

This past weekend, WARDJet-sponsored Steve "Speedy Steve" MacCutcheon competed in three days of FIS North America Cup parallel slalom racing at Buck Hill, Minnesota. "With frigid temps below -20 degrees, the racing was good but cold!" Steve told us. The competition field was tight, and he ended up placing 7th the first race, 5th the second race and 9th the third out of 41 pro riders. Looking ahead at his schedule, Steve adds, "I have a couple weeks to rest and enjoy Christmas before heading to Quebec on the 1st of 2017!"

Jan 14 - 15

Rogla, Slovenia

Not exactly what I was hoping for in Rogla, I made a big mistake that put me in the back of the pack. Looking ahead to Thursday's World Cup in Bulgaria! Though my riding was not good, I am so excited with how the rest of the USA guys rode! With over 60 competitors, 13% of the top 30 men were from the US!

Bansko, Bulgaria

In Bulgaria, I ended up 47th on 2/3 and 45th on 2/5. So though not completely satisfied, I'm glad I am climbing! I feel ready to experience the race and the culture in Korea. I'm currently sitting and waiting for my flight in San Francisco that departs in an hour to Seoul. I feel ready and rested! So fortunate to have my dad traveling with me!

Bokwang, South Korea

I got the fantastic opportunity to race on February 12th in Bokwang, South Korea - PyeoungChang.  This event was very significant because it was the official Olympic Test Event, which means the mountain hosted a World Cup to test the slope, event staff, venues, etc. of next year's Olympic Winter Games.  I was very motivated, as my goal is to qualify next season and it was great to get a feel for the slope.

I was racing well until the 4th gate gave me some trouble causing me to chatter out and lose a very significant amount of time.  I got back into rhythm on the course but it was not enough and ended my day in 44th place.

It was a great experience to be on the Olympic hill and I have visualized what it will take to get back there next season.

Feb 12

Toronto, Canada

After competing on the 12th on Korea, I boarded a plane to fly from Seoul, South Korea to Toronto, Canada to compete on the 14th and 15th.I was definitely very tired on the first day (the 14th) because I didn't get into my hotel until 1am the night before the race. But I raced hard and was able to finish in 7th place both days (14th and 15th), I am so excited to get home to spend time with my wife and some great R&R before traveling to the Middle East in Turkey for the next World Cup in January.

Feb 14 - 15

Kazan, Russia

Feb 25

Kayseri, Turkey

I raced on Saturday to my best World Cup result in my career of 34th place in Erciyes-Kayseri, Turkey. I am really excited with the progress, proving the World Cup that I am climbing. Since my first World Cup of the season my results have only gotten better. I am happy to spend some time at home with my wife in Vail this week and I will leave for Germany in 7 days.

I feel in good shape to keep climbing and finish the season with solid results!

March 4 - 15

Winterberg, Germany

March 18

I had a rough go in Winterberg, Germany to finish the season. The conditions were very difficult with rain and wind, making it difficult to do anything with a start position like I had. I ended up 54th place in the final World Cup race of the season.

Monte Pora, Italy


I then went to Italy to compete in Italian Nationals in Monte Pora, Italy, close to Milan. I had some success the first day with a 11th place finish out of a field of nearly 50 riders and was the 2nd place US rider.

The next day, in warm weather and very difficult conditions, I made a crucial mistake near the finish and flipped upside down to land hard on my back. I strained my lower back muscles and bruised the bone at the top of my hip.

I'm bummed to end my season with an injury, but fortunate it happened at the end and after the World Cup season was completed, and not early on. With varying results all season, I definitely was happy to consistently be one of the top 4 riders from the US in the World Cups and North America Cups.
