Race Day Preparation and Free Riding

We arrived into Tignes yesterday afternoon around 6pm and checked into our accommodation, which is apartment style and comfortable (and only located a short walk from the majority of the competition piste). Today was spent familiarising ourselves with the area and practicing for the events ahead.

Tomorrow we have the first event - Parallel Giant Slalom (PGS). The weather has been clear for about a week, so the cover is very firm now, so there should be some fast times tomorrow. My backs still in a little pain if I push it, hoping that it clears up in the next few days.

Check out some photos of the area. The two resorts (Tignes, and Val d'Isere) are huge with some spectacular surroundings, with 300km of downhill area and 10000 ha to explore. Makes you feel really small when you get to the top and take a look around.
