Another great camp!!

What a great ski camp I just had!! I trained GS in Saas Fee and two days of DH in Zermatt. It was amazing! The last three days Hans and my self trained with one of the best team and skiers in the world.  The swiss team!! It is great to ski with them and we had lots of fun together...

Sandro Viletta and Beat Feuz in the morning line up...

At the start. Coaches, service guys and athletes getting ready for another good training day.

Daniel Albrecht and my self.  Man that guy can ski!!!

When we went to Zermatt for two days of DH training we had a perfect set up directly at the bottom of the gondola. Team TBS also had a personal CHEFF on board. Kurt cooked up a storm for us. Thanks again for the great meal Kurt.

Kurt in action and Helli making sure everything is running the way it should!!

As you can see we all look a bit tired after nine days of intense training. 

Now I am back in Italy and I am looking forward to pick up my girlfriend Julie at the airport to night, she is coming for a visit. 

Stay posted,

So today I trained downhill for the first time in over two years.  I was so excited to finally go fast again and do some jumps. 
For downhill training they have a great track here in Zermatt, the top section is flat with some rolls, the middle section is  more technical with a nice jump and the bottom section has some good gliding turns.
Right away from the first run on, I tried to focus on the right thing and do my best. It worked out great!
After this training today, I realized again how much I missed the speed in the past years. Also it is really good and important to train different events, because one will help the other...

Once again we are more the lucky with the snow and weather conditions, so we will also train downhill tomorrow. 

The top section of the DH course.

Three... two... one... 

In the summer it is the time to get the new skis on the snow and ski with them as much as possible. Armin, the great service man and friend, got a bunch of skis ready for Hans and myself. Thank you!!!

Lois and myself in the T bar after he gave me some advice for the course. 

Hans and myself at the start.

At the last run, Hans hit his toe in the ski boot when he landed at the jump, he was in pain going to the top. So in the T bar, he took off is boot, left it in the ski and just rode the T bar on one ski to the top!!
P.S. He is feeling better now. :-)

Helli and Hans in the gondola on the way down. Yup, we were tired after six runs in almost 4.000 m altitude. Although we will be back tomorrow for one more day of DH!! And the back to Saas Fee...

Saas Fee

I have been skiing GS the past four days here in Saas Fee, the conditions are quite good and the weather once again has been cooperating greatly.
The canadian girls tech team is here as well, it is nice to see them, as I did not see them in so long.

I thought it would be funny to play a little game. 

Here is a picture of them, well a part of them. Lets see if you know who is who!!??

So who is who!??

Anna and my self on the T-bar....

Anna and her whole wardrobe...

Today I am having a day off, and team TBS is traveling to Zermatt for two days of downhill training. I am looking forward doing some speed training.

Business is hard....

Although life is good and skiing is great, life can be pretty tough as a ski racer if you want to make a living out of it.
I just found this funny short movie and I could not help but post it.

So if you or your company feels like riding shot gun next to the most amazing ski racer of all time JEFFREY FRISCH,
feel free to contact me at any time. When I say any time, I mean ANY TIME!!!!

Joke aside....

Once again skiing was great today! We on team TBS are having lots of fun and enjoying every day on our skis.

I am here in Saas Fee now and it snowed yesterday and today. The skiing was not great today but we needed the snow here in Europe so it is all good. The forecast for the next few days is great though, so we will have high volume ski training to look forward too. 
In the past years I was never able to ski high volume because my knee always started to act up if I skied too much. Swelling and pain was the outcome of harder training. 

At the beginning of the summer, when I wanted to start with the important dry land training, gym, biking and so on, I was not able to because my knee had kept bothering me. 
Whenever I have a problem in my body I always go to see superdoc Bob Litchfield. He is the right guy to see.  He is a amazing surgeon and has been fixing my knees as well as the knees of a lot of other professional athletes.
With Bob I know he will do his best to get me healthy as fast as he can. I trust this guy fully.

Dr. Robert Litchfield - Superdoc

So I went to see superdoc Bob Litchfield at the Fowler Kennedy Sport Medicine Clinic in London, Ontario.
About two months ago he scooped my left knee.  Since then my knee is feeling so much better and I am finally able to do stuff that I was not able to do for so long. 
Bob, thank you so much for all your help. YOU ROCK!!!

Good times in the gym and more....

In the past week I have been mostly working out in the gym, but also had some time to do some rafting. 
Some of you may know that in my time off I am also a rafting guide. 

Balancing and core at the same time....

Single leg squatting really fires your legs up!!

In the gym where I work out, there are a bunch of different "guidance messages" posted on the wall... This is one of my favorite ones:

who will not know
the goal,
will never find the 

 I am finally able to jump pain free... Thank you Dr.  Bob Litchfield!!!
P.S. I am to fast for the camera :-)

Some crazy rafting shots!!!

I am in the back with the orange shirt. The water was powerful that day!!!

When the water / river is only white, you know it is intense!!!

My knee is feeling great and I hope it will stay that way once I will go skiing next week.
On sunday team TBS is going back to switzerland for more ski training on the glacier. 
To be exact we are going to Saas Fee and we will mostly focus on GS during this camp. 

All the best and stay posted.

When I was just a young boy I knew already what I wanted to be when I grew up; A ski racer!!!!
Since I've had that in mind, all I wanted to do ( and still want to do ) is ski race. I love working out hard and pushing my self to the limit and, it's conveniently the only way to get to the top.

One of my first ski coaches told me once: " Talent will only help you reach a part of your journey. After that, it is your determination, hard work and your will that will make you succeed! Basicly, how much you really want "IT"! "
I started realizing at a young age that if you want something in life you have to breathe "IT", eat "IT" and sleep "IT"...
Obviously brakes and time off are as important as training hard, balance is key.

I find playing sports, especially competitive sports, is a life long lesson learned that will help you no matter what you decide to do in life.

It is nice to see athletes succeed in various sports on TV, but not a lot of people realize how much work and sacrifices are behind all of "IT". 
Being an athlete is a full time job. It's not easy to push your self to your best potential every single day, but as soon as you remind your self about your goal and how hard you worked to get this far, you stand up and keep going.

"IT" is who I am.

Check this video out for some inspiration.

Work hard.

The power of the mind...

Wow... I came across this amazing video! This guy Alex Honnold is unreal!!!!
Obviously he is great, amazing, nuts.... but mostly I find he is mentally so strong. He overcomes fear refocuses and makes it happen.

Just watch it and you know what I mean....

Talk to you soon,

Bye bye Zermatt... Hello Sand in Taufers!!!

After a great camp in Zermatt I am now back in Italy at my family's home.
What a great camp with TBS, it could not have been better!!
The coaches Helli and Luis really make sure that we have the best individual training. Thanks again guys, you rock!!

Armin working his butt off so our rockets run in the winter... 

The view of the Matterhorn never gets old. 

It is great that my family lives here in Italy. Like that I can go "home" between ski camps. I will be here for about 10 days before going back skiing.
This is my family's home....
Click on it, and check it out...

The plan for the coming days is mountain biking and slowly getting back in to the gym for another good dryland session.
All the best and talk to you soon.
