2002 Olympian Lars Flora has been one of the top U.S. skiers for several years now. He was recently named to the U.S. World Cup team for the upcoming December World Cup races in Canada. Fasterskier.com got an interview with Lars early last week when he was training in West Yellowstone:

How did you feel about your summer/fall training? Did you focus on anything differently this year than in the past?

– The summer and fall training went well. The main difference from previous years was a bump in intensity. The other addition to my training was a threshold block after a heavy September of race pace intervals. I felt I needed a threshold block to help me build back my threshold after doing so many level four workouts. In my opinion skiers need to train their bodies to ski fast without building lactate.
