Greetings from Beaver Creek.
Friday, December 01, 2006

We just had a brilliant day out here in Downhill. Bode won, Nyman was third, while Marco and Scotty Mac rounded out the top ten. What a day for Americans at home. This has to be the best day for American Downhill skiing in years, if not ever.

As for me and the Europa Cup guys, It’s great to be racing again. The last four days we were racing in Keystone at the first Nor-Ams of the season. A few of the guys put together some fast runs. Jit dominated two runs of GS on separate days and Cody put together some great slalom runs. It was really good to see that we have pace in our group, but unfortunately I was never able to put together a great run. There were a few really good sections, but not a run.

Today I checked out the bird’s of prey race hill during downhill inspection and was able to snap off a couple of GS turns in preparation for tomorrow’s World Cup GS. It’s a really difficult hill, which favors me, now all I have to do is get fired up and become part of the American domination. The goal is to get a second run (only the top thirty do). I’ll be starting in the high 60s. Let’s hope for good weather, a hard surface, and a little luck.

It’s go time soon. w
