Winter Park
Saturday, December 09, 2006

Hello all,

We’re about to finish up a four day tech series in Winter Park, CO. We’ve had two SL races and one GS so far. This series is plagued with soft snow making start position have a huge impact on the results, especially the slaloms (both days the racer who drew pole position won the race, granted both Paul and Will skied really well). In the slaloms I finished 4th (started 3rd) the first day and blew out the second day. In the GS today I had a disappointing first run as I just never found the rhythm to finish the run in 9th place. Second run was a much straighter, quicker set so I turned up the intensity and got after it. I pinned off most of the course, ended up winning the run, and moved into 3rd so it turned out to be a satisfying day after all.

Right now we’re moving out of our room before check out tomorrow morning and getting ready for one more day of GS before we drive to Denver tomorrow night, fly to Munich in the AM on Sunday, and drive to Italy on Monday.

I hope all is well back east. I wish I was in Jackson, NH celebrating the union of Jessie and Alison Thompson. Congrats bro!!! Wish I was there, w
