The race course on a glacier. Two weeks before it was a black glacier. Oh the power of mother nature.
There were 5 canadians in the race, only two in the top 30. It is practically impossible to reach the top 30 from the back of the pack. The course by the time our athletes raced was breaking up and had major ruts. When Shona hit a gate at the top of the pitch, the race was essential over although she did finish. She exploded her second metacarpal. Note the fan clubs each with their own brass bands and clouds of smoke. They did not need to be told "to make more noise."
Start List - what an experience for our young Canadian women to compete with the best in the world.
Clive and I visited the Salomon shop and spied behind some shelves a picture of Chris. How cool was that? Two international atheletes in the family.
Shona in the tech room. All the skis have names. Shona's were spirit channeller.
