Another good day on the slopes
Friday, March 24, 2006

Today we raced in a FIS Downhill at Sugarloaf, my college home. It’s nice to be kicking it back at the Loaf and it’s even better because the weather isn’t bitterly cold, windy, and raining. However, I do know the week isn’t over. Anyway, the fast guys (Daron and Bode) both opened the starting wand far before they pushed out of the gate loosing tons of time. This tactic is their way of giving everyone in the race a generous gift; it provides all of us a chance to land an exceptional point race. I skied a clean line, nothing too aggressive, and finished 9th. It was fast enough to score a 28 point race, my best DH result ever (by far). Tomorrow we have the Nationals DH on the same course so it’s time to pony up. My plan is to straighten out the line on the headwall, try to hold bully on the entire bottom section, and land a similar result.

US National Championships commences in the morning and will continue for the next four days (DH, SG, SL, and GS).

Let the games begin. w
