We’ve arrived in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic, and after 30 straight hours of no sleep I slept well last night. Went to the venue this morning. There is no snow off trail, and so they are bringing in truckloads of man- made. It is very fast. One sketchy downhill 180 turn, otherwise fun but not technical skiing. This weekend is Central European Cup ( I think that’s what it’s called) in which I will be racing Sunday. The format is individual relay, whatever that means. JWC races start next Thursday!!
