Methow Super Tour

The Super Tour made its debut in my hometown this weekend. The McCabe Trails at the Liberty Bell High School offered a fantastic venue for Saturdays freestyle sprint. It was pretty cool to get ready for the big races in the same locker room as my junior high and high school years. The entire community came together to bring the Super Tour to the Methow Valley and to make it such a great event. We had some uncharacteristically terrible weather with warm temperatures and rain early in the week. An impressive amount of shoveling and salting were needed to make the races happen. Thank you to the many volunteers and the entire community for all you hard work. I am very luck to have 5 different Super Tour races in my dual hometowns of Winthrop, WA and Hayward, WI. I had two of my best races of the season this weekend and I will write more about those races tomorrow on my recovery day.

Something about racing in your hometown makes it feel like your skis aren't even touching the ground. Plus this has to be the coolest photo ever taken of me.

I am looking forward to racing in Hayward in two weeks for the Telemark SuperTour.

If your skis don't touch the snow then you don't need wax.
