It's hard to believe, but right away this morning we got out on the golf course in Park City for some sweet early season snow! It might not last long, but we'll enjoy while we can here. I think this is the sign of a good winter coming.
Check out the video I just put up chronicling Taylor in his Captain America costume - for the entire trip. This was his way of paying up for a running bet from last year's ski times against Bill Demong.
On a more serious note: a big thanks to the NNF for helping fund this trip. Don't forget that the Drive for 25 is still on!
That's it for Oberstdorf and the trip. I'm writing from Amsterdam now, and tomorrow we'll be home.
We wrapped up the trip with a fun 2-man team event yesterday. We jumped the big hill and raced a 5 x 1.5km sprint course. The teams were made off the finishes from our time trial in Predazzo. Billy and Nick cleaned up, but it was a good fight for the next few spots (the middle guys always seem to have the strongest teams - and they didn't exactly have great races in Predazzo).
I raced by myself and with a ghost racer, because my teammate, Brett, wasn't able to race with a sudden flare in shin pain/ compartment syndrome. So I just used my jump, instead of averaging jumps, and rested between laps for the exact amount of time that my previous lap took.
Half way to winter jumping today! They have a refrigerated track here on the inrun in Oberstdorf that they run water on and let ice over to allow a winter feeling as that time nears. It was pretty sweet to get that smooth sweet feeling of ice!
Where am I?
