The Bird of Prey downhill start
Exciting Talon turn. During course inspection
I’m standing on the Golden Eagle jump, the section below is called the Abyss and has a big compression.
Finals words from Lake Louise
This year was my first time racing the Lake Louise WC downhill in Canada. Always a pleasure to compete at home, something we rarely get to do. Weather conditions have influenced past results, but this year things were fair. My training runs built confidence but unfortunately did not translate to the race. I was hoping to get some WC points but it was not my day! Congrats to Jan Hudec who is coming back from injury posting a 4th in Super-G and 12th in DH. Very respectable.
Off to Vail we go.
The Canadian Rockies can be such a nice place, especially when it’s not -35c.
