This is my 3rd Alpine Insurance Athlete Journal of the season and what a great time to have one. Our team recently got back from the Kimberly Speed races where we had some great results for Alberta with Jamie Casselman and Adrien Grabinski making their way to the top of the podium and Kelvin Cochrane earning his way into 3rd for the night slalom. The team really stepped it up to compete with the other racers. During the Kimberly races, teammate Liam Wallace, was attending the World Junior Championships tech races in Davos, Switzerland. Liam performed extremely well in his runs but, with tough courses and late start positions, had a hard time getting the results.
We have just completed a week of training at Nakiska, with some of the best freeskiing I’ve ever had. My small edit of the past week gives a good look at my stellar DH jump skills in Kimberly and scratches the surface to show the crazy amount of snow we’ve just had in the Rockies. Now the team is preparing for our races down in the states at Snow King, Jackson, while Liam and Jamie take off to the East for the NorAm tech races at Stowe Mountain Resort, Vermont. After Snow King the team will split with some athletes attending the Copper Mountain, Colorado NorAm speed events, and the rest attending the Tech series in Whistler, BC.
