It has been warm here in Sugadaira. The snow conditions most likely will turn to ice! That means smaller ruts! That also means your skis need to be sharp. Be prepared! Always warm up and stretch your body, have your boots tight, skis sharp and waxed, and have a positive attitude about yourself. When it comes to looking at your results. Look and compare only with yourself. No need to compare your self with your friends. You can not control what they do, you can only control what you do.
Good luck in your races and focus on skiing at your personal best. I believe in all of you!
See you soon.
