That was a whirlwind of a trip! After Planica we spent four days training in Oberstdorf, Germany with the rest of our team. We flew home yesterday - which seemed like much longer than two weeks after we left for Lake Placid.
First, some pictures of Planica - because Slovenia is just cool.
Planica sits right in the upper corner of Slovenia. Last Friday, we jumped in Planica, raced on the rollerski track in Villach, Austria, and then explored the flea-market in Tarvisio, Italy.
Off to Oberstdorf, where we were lucky enough to jump an iced track on both the normal and large hill. Their refrigeration system works pretty well - because it wasn't particularly cold.
The team was split while we were in Planica, but after we rejoined everyone in Germany, we had the pleasure of seeing Bill Demong live, train and eat as Aquaman. Remember Captain America from last year? This year, Bill lost the bet and had the pay up - in the form of spending the entire European portion of the trip as Aquaman. Check out the video that Brett Denney put together of him. I think Bill was actually a little sad to take it off when we arrived the states. Orange spandex and fins just fit him.
All-in-all, we did a great job of putting the finishing touches to our summer training, and now we're eagerly anticipating snow!
Where am I?
