    We have wrapped up US national championships. All in all it was a very good competition from all points for myself. I came into competition very happy with my level of training and knew that I could produce a good event. Jumping has been getting better and better all summer long and I felt very comfortable in producing jumps that would put me in a good spot for the race.    I was happy with most of my jumps, [...]

After some solid racing in Norway and Finland, I came back to Park city for the first continental cups of the year. I was very confident coming into these races, as Last year I went 3/3 on podiums on the COC level. This year with the x-c form and the altitude, I knew I had a very good chance of continuing my streak of COC podiums. Going into the first competition jumps, I was happy with my level during t [...]

Coming off Kuusamo, I was very excited to try and score some points in Norway. I have spent a lot of time in Norway since skiing internationally, in a way its a home to me, and I feel very comfortable there. Once again the weather was challenging in Lillehammer. Luckily the crews at the "Lysgardbakken arena" worked very hard and had the k90 ready when we arrived to jump on Monday. After some better jumps on th [...]

Kuusamo:Our first competitions were in Kuusamo/Ruka, Finland. Coming from last years comps there, I was super excited knowing I have been jumping better with time. Also knowing I was in good form on the cross country side, I thought I had a solid chance for some top 30.Due to the weather, the competitions were a challenge to get off. I was there for a whole week and only got three jumps. [...]
