This season so far has felt like watching the first week of the Tour de France. Waiting for the mountains. Today we finally got to go uphill. It has been pretty frustrating over the last ten days of racing on flat courses in a sport of hills and I finally got my chance and won! It was great to reassure myself that I am fit before we head to Silver Star, BC to race on their World Cup courses next weekend against the Canadians in their winner take all Olympic qualifier.
This week they have been calling for cold (-20 F) weather today. Fortunately it stayed above zero and after the foot of snow yesterday that fell yesterday set up nicely and it was just a day of good hard fast classic skiing. Turned out a good day for the APU crew. We got both wins (Holly Brooks won for the ladies) and most everyone in the top 10 and 15. Pretty quick turnaround today as we are already starting to pack up to head out early tomorrow morning for the two day drive to Canada.
