It’s nice to to be able to finally report some positive news from the season so far. I spent the past weekend racing in two French National Cups and found myself on the Overall and Junior podium both days. The first of the two races was in the cold resort of Ceillac, it was a Classic race, which was very steep with hard-pack snow. I finished with the fastest time, but not by far and my training buddy (and housemate), Madi McKinstry (USA), took the 1st place after I was penalized with three penalties. I finished 2nd in Junior and 2nd Overall that day.
The second day, it was a Sprint race (probably my slightly stronger event of the two) in Puy St.Vincent. The weather was perfect and the course was interesting, with many terrain changes and a good jump. I had a better day skiing wise and took 1st place in Junior and again, 2nd Overall behind Laura Grenier-Soliget (FRA). All in all, a good weekend of racing and now looking forward to the next French Cup this coming weekend.
