Well, I'm trying something new, I flew to Austria by myself the other day to race a World Cup. No team, no mechanic, no bryn, but what I do have is speed, a good bike, awesome sponsors like Shimano and fox who offer tech support, and a solid track record at Leogang. Things change sometimes, but I can tell you that after doing a lot of racing in my own country and having fun winning , I still miss racing the best girls in the world :) I have nothing to lose, and have worked hard physically and mentally to be here, so ultimately I want to be here, am prepared for opportunity, and austria is my fav.

The first two world cups of the seson looked anything but fun, glad I was not there. Seems like they broke a few people's spirits. Hopefully I can capitalize on being fresh.

The event is this weekend, you can watch on redbull.tv ... Wish me luck.
