XCFeedsMordarbacken 3.3km

Avatar BrianMarch 19, 2010

The big climb here in Falun is called the Mordarbacken. Todays race went up it 1.5 times.  We will race up the hill in the next two races also.    I look forward to hills.  Eespecially long steep ones like this.

3.3km Prologue

I felt good today. The coaches and techs did a great job helping me test skis and I went on a new pair of Salomons I had never skied on.  They were really good.  I had awesome skis, especially glide.   To my surprise, at 2.3km my 30-second man tracked me.  I moved over and prepared to stick on him and work like hell to beat him to the finish and regain the time I had already lost.  My skis were certainly faster.  We had a good battle to the finish.  I pulled away on the double pole but he came back in the final striding.  In the end I beat him to the line.

A small victory considering he had put nearly 30 seconds on me.  I try to evaluate each race before I see results.  It is frustrating to be caught in such a short race (3.3km) but overall I felt good.    I had good skis and I paced the race well. I finished last.  I hate that.  I don’t know what to say or think about my race.

My focus now is on the future races.  Tomorrow is a mass start 20km duathalon, a strong distance and format for me.   Right now I am stretching, rolling, relaxing and recovering to charge tomorrow.  New day. New Race.
