On top of the podium at the ANC


I have just returned from a training camp in Victoria with the Canadian Ski Cross Team. It was so great to train along side some of my great friends from Canada- even better that two of them are the Olympic Gold and Silver medalists from Sochi!

Spring time fun with Kelsey Serwa

As you all know, Ski Cross is an event where you battle down a track against three other athletes. Training with the Canadians for the past two weeks was productive and so much fun. Racing

head-to-head against some of my strongest competition was a great experience and I learned a lot.

I ended up racing in the Australia New Zealand Cup (ANC) Ski Cross and Hotheam Spring Cross series on Tuesday. I am proud to say that I won the ANC race and was second to Silver medalist Kelsey Serwa in the Spring Cup.

I was really nervous before this event- the first race back is always an interesting one. I am happy to have had some close racing and I am more motivated to train harder than ever before.

Victory at the ANC SX
Happy Birthday Kelsey!

A big thank you to the Biggins family who have let me call their Mt Hotham apartment 'home' for the past few weeks; Mt Hotham Race Club for accepting Anton and I into their community; To Shawn, Danny, Arch, Stan, Alex for staying up on the track until close to midnight to ensure we had world class training; And to Scotti Sanderson and his events staff for a great event!

Now its time to knuckle down and train hard (and steal a moment or two of Sunshine) before I head to Austria in October!
