First FIS points under 50

By tessirlande | On 07/02/2016 | Comments (0)

In Courmayeur, Italy, on a difficult GS course with great skiers including my friend Mathilde from Belgium, I got my first FIS result under 50 points: 47.67! On the second race of the day, a vicious encounter with a red gate on the second run did not allow me to finish with the same result. Next time...  (FAIL BETTER!)

Super G racing in Italy

By tessirlande | On 07/02/2016 | Comments (0)

My first Super G races were last year in Val Thorens where I finished with relatively modest FIS points of 165 but I had fun on the longer skis. This season my goal is to lower these points even if the snow conditions are not favourable for training. So off I went to Pila near Aosta for my first training... in a FIS race with top European Cup skiers. I finished at the bottom of the field, with 140 points! Two SuperGs later, I managed 111 points, (slowly) moving towards my goal of under 100 points.
