I have been over in Europe for two weeks now and it is feeling more homelike as the days go by. It’s different, but i’m loving it. We, myself the other Global Racing boys (Jack, Jeremy, Brian), have settled into our apartment for the winter, which happens to be inside the one and only Haus Tirol. It is great to be back in this area of Austria. We have a pretty awesome set up for this winter and i’m excited for it to really kick off!
So far we have had some great training. Its always busy this time of the year, but the snow has been good and my skiing is really coming along. Kitzsteinhorn has been our training site the last two weeks, minus a day of skiing at Soelden over the WC weekend. Its exactly a week now till we start racing again, and I cannot wait. The adrenaline is already pumping and I can feel the intensity getting higher and higher in training; its definitely time to race! We will be down in Italy for four GS races next week!
On top of training, we spent the weekend in Soelden for the WC. It was great to be there and feel the competitive atmosphere, but also great to spend time with what used to be Team Awesome. Charles Christianson, Paulie (my coach), and I labelled ourselves Team Awesome back in the day, and saying it used to be is actually offending ourselves, we still are Team Awesome! Here are some pictures from the weekend.
