shiga kogen GS #1

Our first race day here in Japan went very much according to plan for me. I skied aggressively (if not always cleanly) and made no major mistakes on a soft-snow surface that's a lot more like what I'm used to skiing in Colorado than Korea was. I ended up 6th out of something like 29 starters in the monoski class. Tyler had a great first run and a not-so-great second run but hung on for second place behind Harry Eder of Austria. As is becoming the norm these days, I was the second-best American finisher in the class. (Full results here.)
