A big thanks to Ramon, Chris and all who made this great weekend possible.
Loved the GS location too and as for the weather - just perfect.

I liked it so much I have to come back - so see you all at the Slalombrunch!

Just as a point of historical interest, the cone penalty on the Am GS PDF is set at 0.1 seconds, where on the day the penalty was 0.2 seconds per cone. This puts me above Silvio, where infact, he beat me.

What a great event of both city and country, industry and pastoral, commercial and domestic. From the generosity of Ramon's folks for hosting a bunch of strangers to the organisation and smooth running of the tunnel race, this was a spectacular and memorable event. I'd've loved the cut to have gone to the top 16, but that just gives me a personal lesson to skate harder.

Thanks Chris, Ramon and the Swiss organisational team!

Thanks Sam!

Thanks everyone who showed up and came out to the GS! It was a pleasure to have you all!

I'm just about to promote our upcoming events, the Rollladen Trophy and the Slalombrunch.

Here's our new TV commercial


And sorry Sam, I corrected the Spreadsheet. It'll be online next week since our webguy is abroad.

Big thanks for all the organizers, it was my first time in Switzerland and I have very good impressions!
It was nice to see also North Americans competing in Europe! I was a little bit surprised about ''161'' performance ( in good way) but in general it was a perfect way to start the international season!

PS - Was it the first victory for Pappas in Europe (outlaw GS)?

More photos, you say? Here's one.

The other 300+ photos from my trip are online at http://picasaweb.google.com/jbh123/Germ ... dApril2009# . I haven't had time to put captions on them yet. At the tunnel race I really only took photos of the Open racers, and except for Gustavs, Pelle and a couple of others, I don't know many of their names. So if anyone wants to "tag" the photos, please go ahead.

There aren't THAT many actual racing photos, but I did get some good shots of the junior racers at the GS hill, which I hope the kids and their parents will enjoy.
