Today was the opening stage of the World Cup’s Ski Tour Canada. After my somewhat abysmal performance in my first World Cup sprint in Lahti, I was determined to prove that I can do better. I still can’t expect much with no sprint training all year, however I managed to pull out one of my best World Cup Sprint performances. I was ranked 83 and finished 79th, 9.4% off the winners time. It is the distance stages where I’m really going to be pushing to move up the field, but to go up the ranks even just a little bit in a sprint is always a good thing!
This Tour schedule is quite full on so this afternoon we traveled straight to Montreal City. After a nice short jog with the team so loosen the legs again, I’m ready for tomorrow’s Stage 2, a 17.5km Classic!
