I feel at home when I am not even close to home. Not even with the same group of people for extended periods of time. I feel at home when I have my own plan and I am following it, regardless of what anyone thinks. These past couple weeks, I traveled with guys on the development team, europa cup team, world cup team and on my own. I even spent a little time with the Canadian tech team. It felt good and for me, it was the right choice. It's pretty funny reading that the team decided that I should race a bunch of European Cups instead of going to Wengen for the World Cup slalom because I was sucking. Sweet people, thanks. First of all, it was my idea. Second of all, I'm going to do what I feel I need to do to get on track and start skiing well. If that means skipping a World Cup and hammering races out on the EC tour and in some FIS races, then so be it. I love skiing and I love racing, that's all there is to it. Somewhere along the way, I figured out a way to get a solid run in starting back in the World Cups and have the chance for a big second run.
Hinterreit now for some training, Hinterstoder on the weekend, Mt Pora next week and World Champs mid month.
