Wiriehorn Nachtsprint

Great to be on skis again for the first race of the season after a 1000 mile drive to Switzerland (with predictable results – ie total red lining after 40 seconds + the whole thing hurt like hell…) – 750m of up and 400m of down in the dark, followed by lots of coughing and a large bowl of pasta…

Although still down on speed as expected, spending all autumn riding up hills on a mountain bike seems to have been a reasonable training regime – as I managed another 2000m of skinning today and felt ok with it.  Great snow conditions out here at the moment, with plenty of powder to be had and continuing low temperatures.
