I have already have had a wonderful beginning to 2015! After heading home for the holidays, I returned to Park City to continue training. I had several jumping sessions and really made some good improvements on the hill. I am looking forward to taking my jumping over to Europe and continue the progress. On Saturday I raced in one of the Wasatch Citizen Series cross country races in Park City. Last winter I raced quite a bit of these. Anyways Bill Demong and I raced together and did very well. Bill was 2nd and I was 5th. The rest of the top 5 were all skiers from the University of Utah and very strong athletes. I was really happy with my result and feel really good as get ready for the Continental Cups in Hoydalsmo, Norway this upcoming weekend. I am now at the airport waiting for my flight to Europe. I am excited to finally head back over for competitions. I will update you again when I get to Norway!
