Hey everyone! We just finished our two days of racing here at Copper on Tuesday, and we both had an awesome time despite dealing with some nasty weather. On Monday we raced Slalom and each finished with a silver medal and $1000 in prize money! Not too shabby!! Tuesday’s GS was a bit more rough though unfortunately. Mimi wasn’t able to race do to a concussion, and Mike had to deal with a nasty cold on top of some crazy cold, snowy and ridiculously windy weather and ended up finishing 7th respectively.
It’s so awesome coming out to USASA Nationals every year and seeing all these young racers from around the country absolutely killing it in their age groups! The progression from last year and the year before is unbelievable. We had some opportunity to watch some of the other racing action, including a young riper from Slovakia on one of the smallest carving boards I’ve ever seen. That is the future right there, and it is so cool to watch! Keep it up guys and girls!
Mike and Mimi
