» Calgary, AB
The 3 a.m. wakeup this morning was no fun, no fun at all! I’m sitting in the Calgary airport right now waiting to board a 6:30 a.m. flight to Denver, Colorado for the NorAm races there starting this Monday (the 30th). I foreran the final training run of the mens World Cup downhill yesterday, which was super fun! The track is great this year with a lot more terrain to deal with at the top compared to previous years. The rest of the track is pretty much the same ripping fast downhill as always. When I went it was bluebird and not too cold making it probably the best conditions I’ve ever run a downhill in, which made it all the more fun.
Here are a few shots taken during inspection yesterday:
