Today was travel day but I didn’t waste any time getting to the top of Copper Mountain.
We were up a 2 a.m., boarded the plane by 5 a.m., arrived in Denver by 7:30 a.m.
By 8 a.m. my Series Director called with an unexpected opening on the boardercross course for training and sneak peek.
Forget breakfast and acclimating to altitude in Denver. I jumped at the opportunity and we headed up mountain.
After I rummaged through suitcases, changed in the car and we found a parking spot to assemble my board.
I made it with seconds to spare at the top of the hill.
Now time for a nap and excited to see what tomorrow brings.
