slalom spot on the line
Friday, November 17, 2006

Early this morning Tim Kelley and I went up to the hill to train some slalom with Bode, but his luggage never made it - it's apparently stashed away in some customs office in Washington- after traveling back from the world cup slalom in Levi, Finland a couple days ago. So it ended up being just Timmy and I training with Bode's entourage in close pursuit. We had a total of 6 coaches spinning around on our loop videoing, coaching, slipping, and carrying our coats. Needless to say, it was probably the best day of slalom training I've ever had and a great way to lead up to tomorrow's time trial. Tomorrow morning Tim Kelley, Jake Zamansky, and I will be hammering for a spot in the slalom at Beaver Creek.

I'm off to bed, but I hope all is well back home. The season is almost upon us. w

P.S. Kevin Francis, one of the Europa Cup speed skiers, ended up winning the GS spot for Beaver Creek a week ago.
