After the training week we had I was really stoked stoked to race the Europa Cup Kirschberg, I felt like I had done a lot of progress and I really thought I had a chance to reach the next level. Then came the first gate on the race and the feeling I had in training was all gone. The day ended up delivering the worst skiing I have done in a long time and I ended up in a 26th place.
I really dont know why I was unable to get the feeling I had in training yesterday, it seems like as soon as the snow is tough and hard on races I seem to have a harder time then most other skiers. While on NZ and in the spring races I seem to reach my potential a lot easier. I really dont know why that is and I have to figure out how make that trend go away. For now I dont have an answer to how to fix this, but my plan for now is to just train twice as much on though conditions and really figure out how to keep skiing the way I should when things get hard.
When things are tough you just have to fight twice as hard. Have GS training set up in Oberjoch all of next week, so hopefully I will be ready for the race in Arber next week end. As you can see on the last picture, I was not very happy so I am ready to really fight to avoid that feeling! I dont mind sucking, but I really cant stand not undertanding why!
