All I will say about the first race was a little bit of a bummer but tomorrow is the first of the races that I have been eyeing for a year, the 30k Pursuit. Tested some new skis this morning and did a hard lap around the course feeling good. It’s pretty nice to stop by the Atomic trailer every couple days and pick up some new board that are better than the rest of my fleet.
I just finished watching the ladies go and while mens and womens races tend to play out very differently it was good to see where gaps were formed and time was gained and lost. For all those young racers out there take a lesson from the sprint for 3rd. Get your toe across first and not your head.
After a rough start weather wise it has been absolutely gorgeous here and the course has firmed up. Looks like it will be pretty warm for tomorrow’s race, mid to upper 40’s.
Annie, Hazel and my parents got to town last night and I’m pretty psyched to see the family. In environments as big and crazy as the Olympics little bit of home are so refreshing.
