I went to Mexico in May for another surf trip...check out the pics! I'm getting the hang of it! After a week at home finishing-up the marketing course I was taking through BC Open University and riding my bike (DH mostly), I took-off for Farnham Glacier to train, and to prove myself and my ability to the National Skicross Team selection committee. Mission accomplished! I won all of the full-length timed runs in the course and I was consistently fastest out of the start when we had the timing set-up at the first corner. There was a camp at Cypress earlier in the year, and several girls were eliminated from the running. Only those who really showed promise were invited to this Farnham camp, and those of us who did well there have been thrown into an intense training program throughout the summer and fall, which includes moving to Calgary for a month and training at C.O.P. We just had our fitness testing and I did really well.
The team will be attending 7 World Cup Events in Europe this season, 1 World Cup in the US, as well as X Games, and several other North American events. I'm off to New Zealand to get on snow tomorrow...after an unbelievable summer of training in the gym, biking, and surfing!
