We have had a couple races already here in Whistler. The slalom was saturday and unfortunatly Brendan and I had to race against each other in the first round and I ended up getting through. In my next heat I washed the front end out in a turn and after that I couldn't make the lost time up so it was an early night of racing for the team.
Yesterday was the Garbonzo downhill and I was looking forward to it, last year my shoe fell off during the race so I made sure they were on tight this time. I dont know what really happened but about 4 turns into my race I fell and hurt my finger. I knew it was a long race and mistakes could be made up for so I kept pushing as hard as I could. The rest of my run was good, I did feel like I was going to throw up in my helmet for the last 5 minutes though. It seems like a good idea to race the Garbonzo every year until your about halfway in and you regret it. In the end I came up 3 seconds short and finished 3rd, its pretty crazy after a 14 minute race that 3 people are only 3 seconds off each other. Im already waiting for 2010!!
