7th world cup is now in the booksAugust 3, 2009
The 7th world cup is now in the books, It has been nice weather all day today and the track dried out a lot for the finals. I went up for practice pretty early to check out a few things and then did 2 runs after that to try and get up to speed. I am still feeling pretty sick as well and woke up sore from my crash that I had yesterday. I wasn't feeling very good after practice, it seemed like when I tried to ride fast I would keep making mistakes so I just wanted to ride smooth in my race run.
The start of my run felt a little slow but after I got to where the big crowds were I got pretty pumped up from how loud they were cheering. The crowd here today is probably one of the best I have ever experienced, it was cool. I ended up finishing in 3rd place only 0.6 of a second off the win which hurts a little to be so close. Im happy with how it ended out though seen as I have been feeling so sick and I managed to turn my 4 point lead in the series into a 16 point lead. We only have Schladming in Austria left for the world cups and it has always been pretty good to me so im looking forward to getting there and taking it down to the wire.
We are heading to Whistler on monday for a couple of weeks during the crankworx festival so that should be good fun and also give me some time to prepare for the world champs in Canberra, Australia at the start of september.
Anyway Im on the hunt for some Irish whisky because I have been told that mixed with hot water and honey is the secret recipe to good health. Sounds wild but I have nothing to loose.
