Tour de Ski 

With the hectic race and travel schedule of the tour de ski it’s been a while since I’ve had a post, but I’ll try to give a quick update now that Grover and I have made our way to Oberwiesenthal and will now have a break form racing.
The Scene in Oberhof for the start of the Tour was pretty cool. I had jess with me and we traveled by train from Austria a few days before the start of the Prologue. As you can image she wasn’t too stoked to be spending New Years eve in Eastern Germany especially because our hotel was a piece of crap. Like really bad. It was just us and the Italian team there and this place was real ghetto.

Slovenia 

Rogla was basically in the middle of nowhere. It's not really a town, just an alpine ski area that was on top of a mountain. But it was really beautiful up there. wish I had some pictures or something to put up but I didn't have much free time there since we arrived on Thursday night and raced Saturday and Sunday. On Friday when we were admiring the views and skiing around testing skis in the sun I was amazed at how we could be perched on top of mountain with such nice weather and no wind.

Davos Switzerland

We just finished up a full weekend of racing here in Davos. This really is a beautiful place and racing here is always a highlight of the year because the training, lodging, and food is always so good. We have spent a lot of time training here over the years and we always stay at the hotel Kulm, so it's kind of a home away from home.
The races here were pretty awesome. Freeman finished 7th in the 15k classic and Kikkan 7th as well on the sprint day. since the World Cups we have been training here and preparing for this weekend's races in Rogla Slovenia. This will be the first time the XC World Cup has gone to slovenia so everyone is stoked to race somewhere new. The schedule for the weekend will be a classic sprint on Saturday and a 30k classic mass start on Sunday.
