  1. After a couple cocktails in Verbier, Switzerland at a Betsafe Gumball 3000 event, I made a bet with my ski buddy Jon Olsson that I could hitchhike from Gilford, NH to Miami, FL.   It turned out to be an amazing experience as a bunch of unbelievably nice and generous people made my journey a reality.  I had 8 days to get there and only 100 dollars in cash.  After winning the bet, I joined Team Betsafe in the Gumball 3000 Rally.  The entire experience was awesome.  I brought some cameras on the adventure and Betsafe has decided to turn it into a web series.  Here’s the trailer!

     

    It was pretty rad.  I love the “No Clue” text haha.

    The first episode should be released in late August.

    Retirement

    It’s been one hell of a ride and now all I can say is I look forward to sitting in a rocking chair on the porch for the rest of my life! Probably not haha. But I do have to say, I am really happy and excited about my decision to finish up my ski racing career. It just seems natural and I literally have no regrets. When I often tell people I’m quitting they seem bummed for me, but they shouldn’t. I have given everything I have to give and things have changed.

    1. I am simply over fundraising for myself. So many people were there for me and made all of it possible, but I just don’t want to ask anyone for money any more.
    2. This season was different. Some of the coaches that made this sport amazing for me have left the USST, like Dane Spencer and Mike Day, so without those guys on the road it was a lot harder to get good coaching and training.
    3. But more than anything else, I just don’t have the same excitement and love in the gate I once had.

    There are sooooo many people along the journey that have made this ride as amazing as it was and without many of you it would have ended a long time ago.

    But Seriously, thanks to everyone that was part of this ride. Thank you.

    Here is a fun little retirement edit I did. I hope you like it.

  4. After a tough race in Oberjoch Germany Europa Cup with my broken thumb I caught a ride to Stockholm with Oskar Bakke to deliver Jon Olsson’s Winter Camo RS6 Audi. That thing must have something wrong with it because it only goes 267 which turns out to be 166 miles an hour. I expected a lot more out of that whip.

    Maybe he’ll get it fixed and we’ll be able to really send it.

    All the best from a warm Stockholm. w

  5. So I was taking a nap in #TheMotherShip today and heard a bit of commotion outside. I even felt the wrath of a couple rouge snow balls hitting the monstrously thick walls of my whip. When I finally went outside to see what was going on, I saw this!

    RUSSIA!!!

    RUSSIA!!!

    The Russian ski team told me with a smile and a laugh, “Now you won’t be so lonely in the parking lot.” Haha! Thanks guys! I’m on my European Global Warming FIS tour and luckily there is some new snow. The race here in Folgaria today was pretty sweet as they injected the hill and some good skiers showed up. Davide simoncelli, Florian Eisath, Alexander Ploner, and a few others showed up to race. Along with the American Development team that I trained with in Chile so it’s nice to have some friends around and Pearl, one of the C Team techs, at the start. It’s just great to be back racing two runs again. If you don’t get second run in world cup, it totally sucks and just isn’t a fun day. I finished 6th today and look forward to notching that up tomorrow.

    Don't worry that's a mustache.

  6. After not getting selected for Adelboden World Cup, insert explivtive of your choice, I trained with the U.S. speed team for a few days and then started a FIS tour. My first race was Mexican Nationals and Junior National Champs in one day. It is always a great time to catch up with the Mexican Prince also know as the oldest 2014 Winter Olympian Hubertus Von Hohenlohe. It’s pretty nice to have someone 55 years old on the start list haha.

    It was on an extremely flat hill as Hohenlohe was clearly looking for the best chances to be competitive and secure an Olympic berth in GS by scoring below 140 points in two races. There were only 30 races to make sure all of the smaller nations could have a good opportunity to get some points. Which also meant that if Hohenlohe finished last first run he would start first second run – well played sir. Unfortunately, the Prince caught an edge in some soft snow first run first race and didn’t compete in the second race, opting to save himself for the Olympic slalom in 6 weeks. He has already qualified in slalom with 136 points. I raced hard both races and was pumped to walk away with my first victory in years and some sweet hardware. I think the prizes, which are Hohenlohe art work, will look glorious in the #TheMotherShip.

    I’m in Patsch for a couple days and then off to more FIS races in Italy. It’s time to rock the FIS tour.

    Here are some shots from Mexican Nationals.
