So my time in Davos for a 10-day training block was basically everything I could have asked for. We had great snow, good weather (apart from one day) and good company. Arriving in Davos it felt like ages since I had trained properly and even longer since I had had someone to train with.
Training was amazing. Perfect trails and sun or snow every day (ok so that’s a tiny lie I did do 4.5 hours of skiing in the rain one day which was a first in Switzerland but as a few of the local Swiss guys liked to point out, a normal day for Australia so I should be used to it).
It was just Phillip, Ewan and I for the training block and then on our last night Finn flew in from Australia for the second part of the European trip, including the Olympics.
It was great to head out and train with Phil each day. It really helps the longer sessions go by which is always nice. After Campra I had felt I had lost my spark but after a week of great skiing and sun, it’s come back and I’m really looking forward to racing in Chamonix, France this weekend where there is a sprint and two distance races which suits me!
Phil and I also put together a movie which is always something I love doing so tomorrow it will be posted on FIS and I’ll make sure I put up a link. I’ll let photos do the rest.
Train hard, rest easy, live for the moment.
