Having a chill day in Beaver Creek today. Yesterdays training run was a ton of fun, but after discussing with the coaches we’ve decided for me to skip the DH race here to focus on the SG and GS races. Its been a busy schedule up to this point and I was feeling super cooked yesterday, so I’m taking today off and training GS tomorrow. As much as I’d love to race the DH here because it kicks some serious butt, I think its a smart plan that’ll let me recharge a little bit and get prepared for my two main events.
If you haven’t heard yet, the GS race in Val d’Isere has been rescheduled to happen here next Tuesday. Actually all of the Val d’Isere races were moved here;
Tuesday: Men’s Giant Slalom
Wednesday: Women’s Super G
Thursday: Men’s Slalom
No complaints from this guy! Less travel for us, and even the opportunity to go home for a couple days after the race. Win win! Plus it gives the Euros a little taste of their own medicine, since we have to travel across the ocean several times a year and they don’t!
