Weekend

Saturday
On Saturday my family did an end of season club championship race. Mum came second behind Daniela Merighetti who came 4th in Sochi. Tigne came third. And we all won a big trophy for being a nice family. Dad could of won if there where no other racers racing.

Sunday
On Sunday I did another race. It was a small race but still hard and I came 17th. My bib number was 254 which meant I was the third to last person to go down the course so it was very rutty. We went to lunch with my friend Thomas because they where going back to Germany.

This is my season basically finished. We leave cortina in two weeks and we will go traveling for a few weeks .

World War One Museum

20140322-130058.jpgFor school in NZ I have to make a poster about World War One. Fortunately a lot of the World War One battles happened in the Dolomites where I am now. So Mum,Tigne and I went a World War One museum.

There were guns,swords,bullets and bombs. We spent maybe an hour or two there. We looked at all the facts. The old museum was an hour away from Cortina. We looked at the cool costumes and guns we also brought stuff like stickers and post cards to go onto my poster.

The museum was a base for the Austrians in the war. It looked out at a big valley that the Austrians controlled.

Speed skiing

On Wednesday we went to a mountain called Col Galina. Tigne and I went on our super-g skis. Tigne skied on 142 centimetres. I skied on 186 centimetres. My skis were really fast.

Micky, one of my coaches, had a speed gun. Tignes first speed was 71. My first speed was 81. Tignes second speed was 77. My second speed was 88. We went on a flat section when we were gathering our speed. I think I could go much faster down a steeper slope.

We only skied to midday because of the snow, it was so slushy. My next step is to try ski in some gates with my super g skis. My skies are so hard to turn it took me a minute to figure out how to turn my gigantic skies.

A Day Away

On saturday we raced at a mountain called Falcade where I placed 4th and qualified for the Italiano regional finals. My friend Thomas came first. The course was really hard because it was very rutty my bib number was 105 which was my best starting number in Italy so far. I got a a medal made from etched glass. When my family went for lunch we had to cross country ski for so long to make the last lift back!

On Sunday I raced in the regional finals. The Mountain we skied on was San Pellegrino. It was a very big mountain. The course was the biggest course I had ever skied.

The course was flat on the top and steep at the bottom. By the time it was my turn the course it was very rutty. My bib number was 389 – so late! I hate having to wait so long for my turn!

Austria

On my last day off we went to Austria with Mum, Dad and Tigne. It was a 1hour 30 drive to a town called Lienz. It was a nice place. We went there for lunch. Dad hade to order because everything was in German. I have no idea what I had but I liked it. We did a big walk around the town. We stopped at a really cheap sports store.

On the way home we stopped in a town called San Candido on the Austria-Italy border where we went swimming. We took lots of videos on the hydro-slide and the lazy river with the GoPro. The lazy river hurt so much it had the biggest jets ever.

After swimming we went to have dinner at an old theatre in the middle of San Candido. Tigne and I had pizza. For desert I hade tiramisu. On the way back to the car Tigne and I were doing Parcour through town, jumping over rails and seats.
