Hey all downhill-lovers,Here is an update about the summer. After being in Landskrona, my Swedish hometown, for vacation it was 100 % focus on Dry-land training. A lot of time in the gym and a lot of strength-, conditioning- and rehab-training. Still I need to work on rehab training to take care of the injuries from last season. One of them is the injury in quadriceps after the crash I had in Kitzbühel.
Two starting positions in Downhill next season!Hi there,What a crazy season I have had. So many things has happened. Trying to summarize it all, this is my first whole World Cup Season. I have been to all of the places on the World Cup tour. I have raced many of them but trained on all the slopes and I have gathered extremely valuable experience for the future. I am already well prepared mentally for next season.
What a month in North AmericaThe 5th of November I travelled from Salzburg to Denver, USA. Two weeks intense training was coming up before it was time for the races. But we also got time to see Colorado Avalanche play hockey one game and got to meet the Swedish national team player Gabriel Landeskog. He is a great guy. We were in Copper Mountain where the most of the teams prepared to get used to the typical American snow.
As the first skier from Skåne (Scania, the very south of Sweden) and the small town of Landskrona, I am about to qualify and establish myself at the highest level in the alpine skiing world, especially the speed disciplines; downhill and Super-G.
At least that is the goal I have set up for myself – and it is something that I have been aiming for as long as I can remember.
