Summary

During a period of solo circuit training using runway 11R, the pilot was advised by the tower of strengthening winds with a maximum crosswind component of 15 knots. He elected to fly another circuit to assess the conditions and on downwind decided to make a full-stop landing on runway 11C to terminate the flight. Upon touching down the aircraft commenced to bounce and veer into wind. After several bounces the nose landing gear collapsed.
