At the Verbier high5 hanging out with the world cup crew. In this picture me, mancuso, osborne paradise, cuche and defago. You should come check this out. Everyone can join and ski against us in 5 different event. Giant slalom, speed trap, skicross, a paralelle and a fun track.
Skiing at Trysil for a few days. Just walked by Bjørn Dæhlie’s medal collection. He’s the greatest crosscountry skier and winter olympian of all time. Your looking at 8 olympic golds, 4 silvers, 17 worldchampionship medals, 9 golds and 5 overall worldcup titels.
Prizegiving after todays downhill was held at a cruise ship in Narvik harbour. It was a fun change of atmosphare from what we’re used to. The cruise company is famous for their cruises in the fjords on the west coast and the north of norway. The best part was that the captain of the ship gave me a free cruise when i have time to join them.
Just landed at Evenes airport close to Narvik. Ocean, fjords, mountains and snow. Looks beautiful! Met up with Kjetil and Lars at the airport and I’m looking forward to skiing with the rest of “alpine Norway”. Skiing the world-cup you dont see anyone else from Norway but a few guys.
Another good day in Kvitfjell with a third place. So fun to ski now when the feeling is good and the times are fast. Happy that Eric Guay won. Him and Cuche are the two guys at olympics that deserved a medal the most, without getting one. Check out the outfits me, Kjetil and Lars have been using this weekend. Its a combo of our olympic collection and the normal stuff. We’ve had the crazy jackets(as we’ve named the) all year, and now we brought our crazy pants from Whistler to complete the craziness! What do ya think? There is actually a facebook group saying these pants are cooler than the ones the norwegian curling team had in vancouver. Flying to Munchen to get to the finals in Garmisch tomorrow. Its gonna be fun! When you ski fast anything is possible.
Start number 17 in tomorrows home snow race at Kvitfjell. Was 5th in training today, so with a little more speed it looks good for a top three. And check out my ski tech’s car with the names on the door. Nice!
Just got up to Kvitfjell and joined the rest of the crew for dinner. Didnt even have time to start the main before the anti doping people showed up. So now we’re sitting around drinking and waiting to get ready to deliver.
