The last two days up here at Sunday River we raced GS on basically an injected surface with a ton of terrain. It was an impressive hill, but I just wasn't quite able to dial it in. The last two years I've done exceptionally well up here, but I just wasn't patient and found myself doing too much sliding at the top of the turn. I ended up finishing 5th yesterday and 4th today, while Leif Haugen and Petter Brenna (both Norwegians) took the victories. All and all, we were able to rack up some precious NorAm points, which is the focus of this season so we’re going in the right direction. I am looking forward to some training and racing in Austria. We fly to Europe on Friday.

The complete bummer of the series is that Charles Christianson, an associate of Team Maximum Velocity, completely tore his ACL yesterday. He was able to get an MRI today in Rutland. It's a sad day whenever that happens and for Charles it's just s*** luck.

The next two days we'll be racing slalom and I really don't know what to expect so I won't try to predict anything. Either way, we're on a great surface and it's going to be a fair race.

Hope you're all doing well, w
