The third and final race in Slovenia was cancelled due to a walloping it received from mother nature. We all were crossing our fingers hoping the snow would hold off but the World Cup race organizers made the right call in cancelling it. Oh well! As much as I wanted to get that race in it was definitely better off for my knee.
So with no racing we dashed out of Slovenia and headed to Austria to catch the Woman’s World Cup Slalom. It was a night race with approx 20,000 people there. By the looks of it we (my two other teammates) were the only Americans there cheering on our Mikaela Shiffrin. If you do not know who Mikaela Shiffrin she is our next Lindsey Vonn if you will… the only other thing is that she is only 17 years of age. She is a freak of nature. Anyways the girl absolutely crushed it and won the World Cup last night. Such a cool experience being able to see that live and then be one of the only Americans there cheering her on.
Today was our first full day in Austria. We are in Rauris which is considered a little ski village in the middle of Austria. It is so rad!! I decided to go for a run today and ended up being joined by the Germans. They are hilarious. Been actually spending a quite a bit of time with these guys. It is a lot of fun being able to get to know some of the other teams for sure.
Tomorrow is a training day. It will nice to be able to get back out there and start focusing for Friday and Saturday. Excited.
