A few rewarding days...
Saturday, April 22, 2006

The desperation tour turned rewarding in Stoten, Sweden. The piste was relatively flat with a moderate pitch in the middle. I knew that pinning it was in order so I leaned forward, cut off the line, and had four good, borderline great, runs. I finished fourth and second scoring a 15 and 14 point race, respectively. Which are the two best GS results of the season (and my life).

Yesterday we traveled 6 hours from Stoten, Sweden to Rjukan, Norway for today’s race rather than racing in a worthless slalom even further away. We were back at it early this morning. I put together another two solid runs, took home the victory, and some prize money. Brilliant!!! It’ll pay for a tank of gas. Seriously, filling up a 15 gallon tank costs around 100 bucks over here. It’s brutal.

The desperation tour continues for at least another day. There’s a chance I might stay for two SG’s on the 25th and 26th, but I’m not sure if they’re worth doing.

Hope all is well, w
