Nordic Combined Athlete
Jumping Farther, Skiing Faster
This past weekend I ventured over to Denver, CO to ride with the Rocky Mountain Chapter of Team in Training. We rode a 45 mile loop around Golden and downtown Denver. Afterward we had a great barbeque where I got a chance to talk to a lot of the team members and hear their stories. This was the first time I got to meet a lot of the members. The team is riding strong and they are all going to do well in the 100 mile ride.
The team is very inspiring. I am proud to be their Team Hero this season. I am excited to get together with the team again, hopefully before our event in Moab.
At the moment I am in Park City working and preparing for Nationals. I am working hard to get my ankle back into shape for jumping. Nationals are at the end of the month here in Park City, UT. On the third of August our team heads over to Europe for Summer Grand Prix's. This year the Summer Grand Prix comps hold a new meaning. They are no longer just a chance to compete and compare to the other athletes. They are now a part of our World Cup schedule, meaning that they will count towards the winter points and athlete rankings. Our team is looking forward to the chance to move up and qualify more athletes on World Cup!
