For me, the World Cup night SL in Zagreb was a dream come true!  For the last ten years I have  wanted to race in Zagreb but this year was my first opportunity.  To move up from bib 62 to 20th place made me feel like my own personal Snow Queen!

As we continue on through racing season, I would again like to say THANK YOU to all of my wonderful supporters who make this journey possible for me!
