Wow, that feels good!
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my 17th birthday, then to start my season with a U19 Podium result.
If you have skied at the FIS level, you know exactly what I mean… Last year, as a first year FIS racer, I spent my season battling from the back. Pushing hard every race to make the flip. 104, 65, 87… Those were my bib numbers.
With that season under my belt and a great off season spent on my bike and in the gym, I felt more ready to get things kicked off than ever before.
It’s a good thing because this is the earliest I have every kicked out of the start gate. Boy did it feel right. I skied well. Getting the chance to step back up on the podium, especially in GS, is something I worked hard for all summer long.
