Adventure comes in many shapes and sizes. Some live a life of adventure, some live to experience adventure. Some make it their souls purpose. For me, adventure is a pastime, something I seek with every chance I get. Something easy when skiing on the US Ski Team. Something that helps make the days away from home and the long moments that fill the days go by much easier. This last trip filled with adventure ranged through a good deal of Europe. The trip started with landing in Munich Germany, the first World Cup race was in InnerKrems Austria with Downhills and SuperGs, followed by GS and Slalom in Kranjska Gora Slovenia. The last race of the recent trip was World Championships in Tarvisio Italy, where the races started with Downhill and SuperG where I managed a Gold and bronze. Marking my first major win, becoming world champion in Downhill, managing a bronze in the SuperG and silver in the GS. Crashing in the SuperCombined and Slalom.
Making this trip mean even more on a personal level.Was the fact i was able to overcome a busted rib from a slalom injury in Slovenia. Making the victory mean that much more on a personal level. The journey to being world champion though fun and sprinkled with slight disaster. Had moment of memories that will forever stay with me. From winning gold and becoming world champion to taking a take and finding peace at the top of a mountain with friends adventuring ruins. This World Championships is bound to be one i am always thankful for.
