Crossing the line.
Sunday, December 17, 2006

Today was a learning experience. I had a few exceptional turns, but all and all I gave the gran risa far too much respect. Fully pinning it was the only acceptable option (now I know that). I ended up pivoting (sliding the top of the turn) far too many times finishing 1.74 seconds out of qualifying for a second run in 52nd place. I started 56th. Either way, it was the first time I’ve crossed the finish line in a World Cup event so it’s a move in the right direction.

I’m taking tomorrow off and then leaving for Hinterstroder, a six hour drive to Austria, after the slalom tomorrow. Then we’ll free ski on Tuesday, train on Wednesday, race the World Cup GS on Thursday, and travel home on Friday.

Take care, w
