This was the closest world cup ski mo race to my home and it was amazing to have my family there to cheer me on, also great to see how many racers from our Chamonix Ski Club were there too.

I was really glad to feel so strong in the sprint world cup semi-finals, and feel that all the hard work of the past months are starting to pay off.

Even though I won the semi finals, I got knocked out of the finals due to penalty with a new rule on poles w/ ISMF. That was a bummer, but there are many more sprints to come and I will get em’ next time.

What a treat it was for my boys to have a visit with the US Nordic Team training in Les Saisies, France. A huge thanks to them all for taking the time to hang and visit and ski.

A great visit with the gang: Andy Newell, Simi Hamilton, Ida Sargent, Holly Brooks

These guys and gals on the nordic team  have been a huge inspiration for me, especially the sprinters, Kikkan Randal & Andy Newell. I wish you all a continued success this season!
