2019 AST Athlete Journal: Ashleigh Alexander
I hope everyone had a great time with your loved ones during the Christmas holidays and are now recovering from all the turkey dinners and festivities. As we approach the New Year, our girl’s team will be heading out east to compete at NorAms. Unfortunately, I will not be joining them due to a crash in Panorama that left me with a concussion and a partially separated shoulder. I have been cleared of my concussion and am slowly getting back to 100% with my shoulder. I want to say thank you to all my coaches (Darin, Leslie & Jonas), Rob McCloskey, Gavin Preziosi and the Gray family for being such a huge support and helping me while I was in Panorama following my injury. I also want to mention my teammate Claire Timmermann, who amongst all the craziness of racing, was a true teammate by taking care of me for the first few days after my crash and pulling out her first NorAm Junior podium on her 18th birthday! Super proud of her!
I hope you all have a great New Year and I hope to see you guys on the slopes! I also wanted to thank our sponsors, Western GMC, Sporting life, and Bruce Legree with Descente for the continuous support! I would also like to thank my personal sponsors Bliz and Rossignol for keeping me safe, helping me ski fast and making sure I always look good!
