European Races Begin

The past couple of day’s here in Leogang have mostly consisted of gym and tuning some new skis – so fairly quiet really, mostly because there’s been a steady downpour which has not been too ideal for the mountains. Before that however, I took a trip to the HEAD factory with a couple of the other guys in our team. Bit of a lengthy drive – about 8 hours in the car, but well worth it. Picked up 5 new pairs of skis and had a little work done on my boots as well.  Many thanks to the team at HEAD!

So training slalom the couple of days after with the new boot set up proved interesting.The main change having lifters put on. It doesn’t sound like a huge change, but I certainly noticed a big difference and luckily for the better! Amazing how small things such as this can effect your skiing.

Back into some GS training at Hinterreit today. Very excited to be leaving for our first European races tomorrow. 2xGS in Obersaxen, Switzerland on the 10th and 11th, then straight to Garmisch, Germany for 2 SG and 1 GS  on the 12th and 13th.
