Makeachampion update

As I promised here is couple more pictures, courtesy of CCC and Nordic Focus.

This one is from Team Relay, Devon Kershaw was on the first leg, Alex Harvey 2nd, I did 3rd, and Graeme Killick finished it off on 13th place. It wasn't result we were hoping for and to be honest I really think we were capable of fighting for the top spots, but that day snow conditions were very tricky for waxing, so we had a problem with kick on first two classic legs and a bit of the glide struggle on the skate part.

Not going to get into details, but sometimes it's impossible to compete with other countries that have a budget for wax, technicians and testers, 10 times bigger than what we have at this moment, and on the tricky waxing day it really shows.

Of course all of us were disappointing with the result, not only skiers but all the support team, but we have to stay positive and look forward to the next races and try to do better next weekend.

Our Team just arrived to Davos, SUI, to get ready for the next racing weekend, which would include 30km individual skate race and a Skate 1.4km sprint. I will focus in 30km race of course, skip sprint race and actually go back to Canada to spend Christmas Eve with my family, recharge and come back for the Tour de Ski.

Also I'd like to point out that, thank to Make a Champion guys, I've extended my campaign for one more week, hoping to get closer to my fundraising goal.

Thank you for reading and following.

 This photo was taken during 30km Pursuit, were we put 4 guys into the points!!! It was very fun racing along side my teammates.

On the photo: Greame Killick is leading out "train", followed by Dario Cologna SUI, Devon Kershaw and myself #37.
