Hello all. The race today was very tough. I started out conservative and then tried to pick people off. The downhills were very very steep. Although I usually do not do well on the downhills I did very very well on the hills. The race is an awesome experience. I ended up 17th overall and finished in 38:25. I was very happy that I did beat the top women Anna Pritrova. Both women teams did very very well. The jr women placed 2nd and the senior women won. The men had a much tougher day but it was still and awesome experience. Hopefully in 5 or 6 years I will be able to make the senior and kill myself on the 3 loop courses.
