Finals Week in Lenzerheide, Switzerland
April 5th, 2013
Finals this year were held in Lenzerheide, Switzerland a couple weeks ago. It was an awesome finish to the whirlwind of a season at another amazing ski town. The weather in the beginning of the week was foggy and windy so the speed events were canceled, which was a bummer since that is a great hill for me in speed and home to my best WC DH finish (4th place). I clinched the GS title in Kranjska Gora the weekend prior going into finals, but still wanted to win the final race to cement my 4th GS title. It was awesome to end the season on such a high note. Ironically, the final GS race results were me, Hirscher, Pinturault and that was also the final standings for the GS title. I ended the season 3rd in the Overall; my best Overall ranking.
Overall podium; congrats again to Hirscher for an amazing season. It was awesome, motivating, frustrating and inspiring to watch him race this season. He is an admirable and fierce competitor pushing the boundaries of ski racing.
Thanks for all the support this season, I couldn’t have done it without you! It means more than you know to have positive fans, family, friends and coaches which I am fortunate to have in my career. After taking a couple weeks off the season will start up again in full force and I am already pumped and looking forward to doing it all over again many many many more seasons to come.
