To understand better how wonderful this World Cup is, you have to see it for yourself. All the teams get to stay at Le Chateau and get to see this every morning waking up!
My good friends Anna Goodman(who now works for FIS!) and M-P Préfontaine were up for a little photo sess!
Before I talk about the Lake Louise SG race, I want to say a few words about last weekend in Aspen. It was a hard one for me with a 23rd in GS and 18th in SL...I think perhaps I put a lot of expectations on myself after Solden and Levi's top 10s. My skiing in the GS was still solid, but I made a lot of big mistakes which cost me a lot in the end. But on a positive note, it was my first time getting a second run in that discipline on that hill. The next day, I was pretty low on confidence from the GS and let it affect my SL, never again though! I now remember my focus in SL and will be right back on it for the next race in Are, Sweden!
Today's SG in Lake Louise was very positive and I was glad to achieve my goal of getting a top 30! It was hard to come from the back (number 50), but I skied technically well and tactically there is definitely some adjustments to make, but I did ok!!
I came in 28th.
Here is Chemmy Alcott, her story is amazing. She broke her leg 2 years ago here in Lake Louise and came back this year with her first race back on the same track! She was 25th on Friday's DH, what a champion!!
Larisa Yurkiw is looking strong for the upcoming season. After 3 years of injury and hard work, she finally got back in the top 30 today with a 25th place in the SG (best Canadian finisher!) Proud of my teammate!
I was really happy to see my parents and friends cheer on me in the finish today! I love racing in Canada!
