SG today cancelled
Thursday, March 12, 2009

Today they ended up canceling the race because it was too dangerous. The snow was perfect, but the course was set too fast going into a right footer over a jump that ended up being far bigger than expected. Two of the first five racers went off of it with a loaded ski having the correct direction and landed in the fence. Bib 2, Sam Sweetser, packed it into the fence and came away with the ice equivalent to road rash as the snow ripped through his DH suit, long johns, and underwear. Bib 5, Tyler Nella, went even further than Sweetser and landed on his shoulder in the B-Net. I was starting 10 so I never had an opportunity see the track.

Either way, we’re racing Super G tomorrow (so there will be no Super Combined). I start 3 so that should be sweet. There was a scheduling error on the FIS site and the GS is on Saturday. The slalom is on Sunday.

Hope you’re all doing well, w
