2016 just started and I have already took part in 2 European Competitions in Val Cenis. Those were two really good but difficult races, the gates were well designed and challenging, the snow was hard as I like it. Moreover, in the start list, there were some big names like Lizeroux, Grange, Gini e Buffet. Well, yesterday I ended up in 8th place with bib 28, and this gave me a super strong confidence and adrenaline rush! Today I was excited for the second slalom, I was ready to express myself in the best way, as I showed during the first run, I was in the 4th place but unfortunately during the second run I made a technical mistake just before a tight sequence of 4 tough gates and I was forced to terminate my race upfront.
I should say this is not a bad start for 2016 season, I am happy and ready to take on the challenges 2016 holds for me! —> off to Santa Caterina.
