BACK IN USA!!! Italia was beyond extraordinary.
We are working hard getting ready for the 2011 World Champion season. We spent a good chunk of June and July on snow at Timberline Ski Area in Oregon. The skiing and training were great. It was a very cool summer in Oregon and we had winter like conditions for our camps with the US Team.
Now we are back in Park City and training in the Gym at the USSA Center of Excellence. It is great to be back in that facility. The staff is very helpful and we could not ask for a better environment to be training in this time of year. With some snow up on the summits of the mountains around here this morning, it will not be too long before we are back on snow and gearing up for the seasons first races in Colorado.
Of course the highlight of this Winter will be our World Championships in Sestriere, Italy in January. We were lucky to race on that hill last season and can not wait to get back on the Downhill track again. It is a really fun course with all sorts of terrain and speed. We hope to build on the good results we had there last season.
