Long Ride

Today is my first 40 mile ride. I'm still on my old mountain bike so it will be a challenge. It only makes me stronger, right? Lake Stevens 70.3 is 3 months away. The weather is cooperating so it should be a fabulous day for a ride.

A perfect mother's day gift would be a tri bike. Cervelo P2!  Anyone out there feeling very generous?

Happy Mother's Day!

Where are the LINE guys?

EP and TM finish awesome breakfast in OR.
This was on LINE'S facebook wall today.


Let ski girl decode this for you.
EP is Eric Pollard.  Yes, that Eric Pollard.  You know the EP Pro, Sir Francis Bacon, and Elizabeth.
TM is actually JM.  Josh Malczyk  LINE Athlete Wrangler/Marketing Guy.
And OR is Oregon.



If you follow this blog you know that I love, love my LINE skis.  I have some Motherships and my Shadows are my absolute favs.  The little ski princess rocks the Celebrity Mini.  


So my question is where in Oregon were the Line guys eating breakfast?  Where are they now?  And more importantly can I have a new pair of skis?  Come on guys share the love!  Maybe some Pandoras?  LINE say's, "Ride like a girl, ahead of the guys".  That's what ski like a girl is doing.

Be a Girl Today

I was very excited to open my mail box and receive a package from Be a Girl Today!  It was like Christmas in March.  Be a Girl Today is run by 5 sisters in Maine who are all active in sports.  They ski, board, ride horses, climb mountains and play soccer.   I wish they lived closer because I'd hang out with them.  Be a girl today is a company that believes girls are athletes not tomboys.  Something that ski like a girl believes strongly in too.

Be a Girl Today also gives girls a voice in product development by involving their daughters and friends in a junior advisory board that meets annually.  They discuss what is and isn't working and where to go next with the company.    

Of course I absolutely love the T-shirt they sent.  Anything with ski like a girl on it and I'm in.  It's the long sleeved version of this one.  A very soft, 100 % cotton shirt.  They run a little small so definitely go up a size when ordering.

They also sent some ski like a girl stickers that are perfect for your helmet.  I'll be decorating my little ski princesses' helmet with these. And yes we should all be wearing helmets!
Whether you ski, snowboard, ride horses, play tennis, basketball or soccer check out Be a Girl Today.   Let your Girl Power shine.

Lindsey Vonn wins the World Cup Downhill Title

German skier Maria Riesch beat Lindsey Vonn in the World Cup downhill event Wednesday, though the American is still on track to win her 33rd World Cup title, beating Bode Miller's 32-title record. Go Lindsey!

I got 2nd today in the DH race and received the crystal globe for winning the overall DH title. It is always a good day when you are on the podium especially when it is the end of the season and you are trying to lock up an overall title. Going into today my focus was on the overall world cup title and my goal was to ski solid and not risk to much. I knew before my run that Maria was leading by over a second in the finish so my plan was to ski solid and make sure I finished staying as close to Maria as possible. If I can do the same thing in one of the next 3 days/races the overall title will be finished. Tactic tactics tactics! Its not always the most fun way to race, but sometimes you have to do it if you want to win season long titles. Tomorrow is the last GS race of the season 1st run starts at 9am European time I run #27. You can catch the action on www.universalsports.com LV :)

Last downhill of the season! 5th place, and 6th overall in this years DH standings!!!

Results Wednesday of the final women's World Cup downhill of the season:

1. Maria Riesch, Germany, 1 minute, 34.82 seconds.
2. Lindsey Vonn, United States, 1:35.30.
3. Anja Paerson, Sweden, 1:35.95.
4. Nadja Kamer, Switzerland, 1:36.04.
5. Julia Mancuso, United States, 1:36.13.

Congratulations to Lindsey and all the awesome ski racers!

Lindsey Vonn wins the World Cup Super Combined Title

Just turned on Universal Sports to find out the Super Combined is canceled.  There was talk of adding a Slalom after tomorrow's regular Downhill but that isn't going to happen now.  
 
 
Lindsey Vonn was crowned super-combined World Cup champion after final event of the season in SUI was abandoned because of gale-force winds.  
 
Winning the super combined title!
The Super Combined race was cancelled today due to high winds. As a racer you want the races to be safe and fair so I think the officials made the right decision in cancelling. Here is what the FIS website wrote on the matter - "The Jury has unanimously decided to cancel today's Ladies' Super Combined in Crans-Montana (SUI) according to the rules. Due to the fact that there is no reserve day available, the SC will not be replaced. The further program in Crans -Montana will stay as scheduled, Saturday DH and Sunday SG." So I think that means I won the Super Combined title! Obviously this isn't the way I wanted to win the title, but I will take it none the less. It's an outdoor sport and anything can happen. Sometimes these decisions go your way like in this case, and sometimes they don't its just part of our sport. Hopefully the weather will be better tomorrow for the DH! 
 
 Current Overall World Cup Standings
1. Lindsey Vonn          1311
2. Maria Riesch           -137
3. Anja Paerson          -425
4. Kathrin Zettel          -482
5. Tina Maze               -610

Congratulations Lindsey!  Watch Saturday's downhill live at 4 a.m. ET on UniversalSports.com!
