First FIS Races
Now that I have two FIS giant-slalom races under my belt, the next time I participate another one my start number will be much lower, and the course will be much smoother for me. The last two days the course was smooth, fortunately, and I'm happy with my results. On Sunday I placed 72nd, and today 82nd--both out of 113 competitors. These results don't sound very impressive; I admit, but starting at the bottom of a league is very difficult. The other 15-year-olds and myself are the youngest and most inexperienced racers here.
