I've been horrible at updating my blog this season. Sorry for that, I'll try to keep posts coming more often.
The World Champs are done and I placed 14th. It was a tight race with a lot of action and good skiing from most. Congrats to Ted, Marcel and Alexis. Amazing skiing from all of you! Unfortunately mistakes cost a lot in those kind of races where the margins are small. A top 15 spot was not what I was going for, I had my goals much higher. This week, except for my body, has been great. I'm satisfied with my equipment and it feels like I can work on the course more like I want to at the moment. There's still the same issue as always, my race line, that needs adjustment. In the second run with only 1 second off Hirscher I knew that with a really good and risky run I can fight for the medals. I started aggressive, skied too straight and fought more with my line than in the first. In both runs I lost a lot on the end and I'm still not really sure why, I felt like I kept the tempo and I didn't feel tired so I have to analyze how I came over to the last flat. Unclean, too round or something else?
