NZ Season

Southern hemisphere racing has come to an end with some great results for me this season but we still have a little more training to do (conditions permitting!)

It was pretty exciting to score my lowest points result to date with 6 points from my win at the ANC GS race in Thredbo, Australia.  I also picked up the ANC yellow bib for Overall as well as for Slalom.  Unfortunately the speed races at Mt Hutt were cancelled after one great day of training prior to the races as wind conditions were just too extreme.

A few images from racing at Coronet Peak this season.

This season we started on the new dimension GS skis with the radius reduced from 35m down to 30m.  I’m really enjoying the skis and have been skiing consistently with good times.  Still making some frustrating mistakes during races however I am noticing my improvements.  Training at Rocky Gully has been excellent with very few weather affected days.  Variable snow conditions are always good to train on as it’s not often we get to race in perfect conditions.

Thanks to all our amazing sponsors and supporters, this season seems to have flown by.  Plans and organizing for the coming northern hemisphere are well underway and with lots of travel, World Cup races and potentially 2018 Winter Olympics, it is going to be one of our biggest and toughest seasons.
