Race in Tignes. Or not...

     The weather conditions around Europe are not the best in November. And for the speed disciplines in alpine skiing that can be a real impediment. Normally I should have had 2 races by now. Raiteralm (AUT) European Cup and Tignes (FRA) FIS race. Due to the bad conditions Raiteralm was first postponed and then cancelled. In France it was a different story but the outcome was the same.  We got to France, the race started and after the first 24 racers it was stopped. The organizers did their best to make it happen but fog is one of the things they cannot control. To sum up I visited France for 2 days. The only positives of the trip was that I got to meet my colleagues from the Olympic Team, Ania Caill and Alexandru Barbu. Next race: Val Gardena (ita) 2-3 December.

     Conditiile meteorologice in Noiembrie nu sunt cele mai bune in Europa. Iar pentru ce inseamna probele de viteza ale schiului alpin pot fi un adevarat impediment. In mod normal pana la aceasta data trebuia sa am deja 2 curse in picioare. Raiteralm (AUT) Cupa Europei si Tignes (FRA) FIS. Raiteralm a fost amanat apoi intr-un final anulat, iar cu Tignes alta poveste aceasi deznodamant. Am ajuns pana in Franta, a inceput concursul, dar dupa 24 de numere a fost oprit din cauza cetii la nivelul inferior al cursei. Organizatorii s-au straduit din rasputer insa ceata nu a disparut si intr-un final a fost anulata si aceasta cursa. In concluzie am fost in excursie pana in Franta, singurul lucru pozitiv fiind acela ca mi-am intalnit colegii din Lotul Olimpic de Schi Alpin, Ania Caill si Alexandru Barbu. Urmatorul concurs: 2-3 decembrie, Val Gardena (ITA).
