Ups and downs of ski racing...

Sorry for slacking on my blog, but I was staying at a lodge cabin in the middle of the mountains so internet was not really high speed. To be honest it was nice (for a few days) to have limited internet access.  

The past few weeks have been hard and did not go like I planed, that is the way it goes though in this sport. One day you are up and the next you can be at rock bottom. I have to say that even though the results were not good, I still had some amazing turns. I was just not able to put it all together from top to bottom.  

Working on my skis...

Me still looking at the bright side of life!!

Talking about the ups and downs of skiing , My buddy Hans Olsson is on fire!!! He won both World Cup training runs at the Val Gardena DH... I am so happy for him. Yes it is "only" training but still it's amazing. Tomorrow he will be racing the SG and then on sunday it will be the official DH race.
Cross your fingers for Hans.
He has also been going through the ups and downs..... and now it seems like he's got a grip on the good!!! No matter what his result is this week-end, this pass week is a definite confidence boost for team TBS!

I hope I will see Hans on sunday in the TV as happy as he was after this training day at Stubai in October.

We just went for dinner to a Chinese place and I opened a fortune cookie, and this is what my fortune red. :-)

I thought it would be cool to share with you guys.

Now I am flying back to Quebec, I will relax and finalize my christmas shopping, before I will start training in Mont Tremblant next week. I am looking forward to get back to Tremblant, see my friends and family tank some energy and get ready for the races in January.

Ronny in the Rockies

The last few days I was racing at Nakiska. I am touring the Noram circuit with my friends Alexander Koell from Ost Tirol / Sweden and Arjan Wanders from Holland. 
We were not the fastest in Nakiska but at least we are the ones that are having the most fun, I am sure though, the results will come soon, as I am skiing good. Best advice to kids: Remember to ALWAYS HAVE FUN!!!!!

Yesterday we travelled here to Panorama and we are lucky to be able to stay at Alexanders uncle Roko, who is one of the best mountain guides here in Canada at CMH Heli-Skiing. 
His log cabin is in the middle of no where and his next door neighbors are cougars and elks. 
We are enjoying a day off before we start racing the next Nor - Am series here in Pano.

Check out our video for the latest ski equipment changes.
Ronny and Friedl in action.

Hope you enjoyed it. Talk to you soon.

Hi there...

So I did not really ski the way I can in the last few days. 
I raced the World Cup SG at Beaver Creek, but did not make top 30 which was my goal. 
Now I am in Calgary and I am racing at the North-American Cups at Nakiska. Today was the first SG race of the series and lets just say I am not happy about how I skied. 
But hey, life keeps on going and it is all good as long as I get my good feelings back.... sooner than later that is. 

I am already looking forward to the next race tomorrow.  Skiing is a hard sport, one turn you have it and the next turn you've lost it.... now it's all about how to get it back. After talking to TBS coach Luis and getting some words of wisdom from Larry and Julie, tomorrow I am going to approch it with a different attitude and try to find my touch again.

Julie and her brother Vince lost their dad 8 years ago today...... let's just say that their outlook on life helps me see my bad days on the hill in a different perspective. It's all about having a positive attitude. 
Big hugs to the Langevin family :)

What a cool scenery!!

Keep your fingers crossed for me and talk to you soon.
