Just a bittersweet day on the Birds of Prey. Hangin’ at the bottom, waiting, watching Sandro Villetta come down to take the cake was bitter sweet. With an 8th last year in the Super G I’m slowly getting there. Consistency and building consistency is key for my skiing right now, it’s rocking and I feel like I’m on the right path.
The game plan worked. Started third, took advantage of the early start, came down with the early lead. Yesterday was a bit frustrating, not what I wanted, coming off Lake Louise with the results not going the way I wanted really got me to where I was today.
Story of the day? Super emotional, doing what I had to do, possibly my first world cup podium on the line. Hats off to Sandro, giving me the boot to 4th place, all-in-all a good day. The boys that won today did so with incredible ability. What they did today was an amazing feat on skis AND super exciting. Im very happy to be in the runnings.
Stoked for the GS tomorrow and the Val d’Isere make up GS on Tuesday. Solden wasn’t awesome but I like where my GS is at right now. The plan is a solid first run that can put me in the flip for the 2nd run and build on that. Really looking forward to the next couple of races.
