It has been almost 2 years since my last top5 result. I started to lose self-confidence. Most of all I started to question ski racing and if it is still the right thing for me to do. But I also realized that giving up is no option. I knew that losing the thing you can do the best is not possible even though I did have difficulties finding it again. I am not saying that the last 1,5 years have been easy. Actually, some parts were troublesome, not only for me but also for the people surrounding me. But isn’t that what life is all about? What this kind of sport is all about? To never know when you push out of the starting gate what happens in the finish. And when you cross the finish line and you start preying that, once you have moved your head up again, the light is green.
It was green in Crans Montana and I eventually got 4th.
