I’m finally back online here in Austria. It seems the internet can still be somewhat of a luxury over here… Besides being removed from what’s going on in the world, everything has been going well here and I am having a good time at camp.For the first ten days of camp we were in Antholz, Italy. I have raced there many times in the winter but I had never been there in the summer. This has always been one of my favorite places to race in the winter and now it is definitely near the top of my list for summer training. We put in a lot of training hours there running in the mountains and biking some amazing alpine passes. The scenery was only matched by the incredible cuisine in the area. Living in Antholz could be trouble for me though as I don’t think I would ever want to leave the restaurants…From Antholz I flew to Puttlingen, Germany for one day to do a race with some of the best biathletes in the World. It was a fun experience and I would like to do it again but I was definitely a little overwhelmed by the whole situation. Here I have been training on my own or with a few teammates for the past months and all of a sudden I was in front of 20,000 plus enthusiastic fans. I was a little in shock and definitely underperformed but it was a good reminder of what I have to deal with come wintertime. I guarantee better performances when it counts in the winter!After Puttlingen I traveled to Obertialliach, Austria for the second part of our camp. Like Antholz, I had only been to Obertilliach in the winter. The venue here is really nice with a brand new roller track and he we have been taking advantage of that with a lot of specific ski training. We finished up a big block of training here on Saturday and I am now enjoying a few easy days before we head to Oberhof, Germany for the final part of the camp. In Oberhof I will have the opportunity to start testing some new skis for next year so I am super excited about that!It looks like I should have internet access for the rest of the camp so I hope to keep posting some more pictures and videos. Thanks for checking in! The view from one of our bike rides. This is me clinging onto the cable while taking a look down a few hundred feet.
