Originally I had planned on not racing the 30km classic race in Rogla, but I have been feeling good and I felt it was just too good an opportunity. The pack was huge and almost everyone was together at 5km. It is a bit surprising to feel good in a race and be skiing as far back as I was. Casey has been helping me adjust my klister zones and I had fantastic kick. I think I chose to go with a bit too much kick because my glide was not the greatest but I was able to make a lot of time up on the climbs.
It has been hard to adjust to my results over here. My goals were to finishi top 3 in the swiss cup races and top 5 in the OPA races. I haven’t been close to that yet but have still battled in each race. Although I was a big chunk of time from the win I still found myself skiing with other racers throughout the course. On the last lap I caught a few skiers ahead of me and had a sprint with a Spanish skier who I had skied most of the race with.
