Mind over matter - on the road with Kelsey
I am currently on the plane heading to Zurich via Frankfurt for the next two World Cup Ski Cross races - Val Thorens, France and San Candido, Italy. This is the first time I have been unable to sleep on a flight over the Atlantic. I am short on space so I can't imagine how the boys must be feeling right about now. To get away from the claustrophobic atmosphere a couple of us found relief at the back of the plane but unfortunately got ushered back to our seats shortly after.

The previous stop on our World Cup tour was in Blue Mountain, Ontario. Last year, this event was amazing with tons of eager spectators cheering on their Canadian team. This year was much of the same story. There were over 1500 young students lined up along the fences hootin’ and hollering at the finish line, along with some 3000 other spectators. Blue Mountain is an amazing venue and I enjoy racing here. The Canadian cheering team is one of the biggest crowds we see on all of our World Cup events.

Kelsey qualified first in the quarter finals, and then the whole mountain held its breath when she took a spill in the semi finals placing 4th. She finished the day winning the small final which placed her 5th overall for the event. Stay tuned as Kelsey will race again on March 3rd in Switzerland in a World Cup race.

The last week and a bit of my life has been a whirl wind to say the least. I had no doubt in my mind that I could win X Games, and I did. Crashing through the finish line was not what I had in mind but it was sure exciting to watch! The crash left my body in a mess. I was lucky not to break anything, but unlucky that everything in my body had just suffered some pretty hefty trauma.
