World Cup, Schladming

Awesome experience!  First World Cup slalom at Schladming – an enormous crowd reported to be 50,000, lining the course from start to finish and stacked in the stands and buildings at the finish area.  Such an amazing atmosphere.  It started snowing  a couple of days before the race for the first time in weeks and it was snowing lightly during the race.  It was a great course and despite starting bib 78 the track was in fairly good condition. I moved up to 57, although only the top 30 get a second run in World Cup races but it was great to be a spectator for second run and watch the top guys in action.
