Torin Koos Update
Up here in Mazama in the North Cascades it’s already getting that brisk fall feeling in the mornings. That’s good because it reminds me that shortly I’ll be heading off to Norway to kick off the season racing on the Scandinavian Cup. I’m particularly excited to be teaming up with the professional Norwegian outfit Team Sjusjoen. I’ve got to give big props to the World Cup skier John Anders Gaustad, along with Inge Scheve and Mike Meyers for helping with some of the introductions and getting this ball rolling.
In November and December I’ll be basing out of the Lillehammer/Sjusjoen area, then rolling to places like Beitostolen, Rovaniemi, Gaalaa, Meraker, Savalen and the like on the weekends. I’m sure to get plenty of competition as I hear they have a couple fast kids over there. At least that’s the word on the street…
I’m also particularly excited for the opportunity to have a bit more of a home base while racing instead of just being a visitor rolling from one hotel to the next as the weeks on the calendar flip to the next. This is the type of change I need to take my skiing to the next levels and to see these doors opening up is pretty cool. I encourage you to follow along, at my stateside club’s website methowolympicdevelopment.blogspot.com. The Norwegian team’s site is teamsjusjoen.net.
