First Europa Cup

We finally got into the racing side of things after all the postponed or cancelled races due to the lack of snow.  Started a series of slalom races in Garmisch, Germany unfortunately just 37 of 113 finished and I wasn’t one of the finishers. Team mate Mike Rishworth, myself and coach Nils Coberger then traveled on to Gaal, Austria for two more slaloms.  Day one I was pleased to put two good runs together and achieved a 2nd place podium result as well as making points (20.48)  Day two was one of the rougher Slaloms I’ve skied and wasn’t as successful, then it was on the road again to Turnau for two more slalom races.

Later today I will be racing in my first Europa Cup at Zell am See which should be quite the experience. It also happens to be a night race!
