Oberstdorf Jumping Arena
Our next stop in Europe was the small town of Oberstdorf, we were here for five days. While we were here we jumped both the K120 (on the left) and the K90 (next to K120). Both of these hills are extremely fun and this whole arena is one of the nicer ones that we jump at. The is a roller ski course in town as well which is very nice and was super fun. We did intervals here earlier this week, you can check out the video of me doing intervals here. This was a very cool town that hosts World Cups in the winter that we were lucky enough to train at. I really enjoyed jumping here because this big hill is so nice and relatively new.
The Czech Republic team was here in Oberstdorf training with us as well. On our last day here we had a coaches competition with them which was very fun. I did not jump as well as I would have liked here but I did start in a faily good position. We were competing against the Czech a team as well so I was racing in the pack of the pack, however I was able to ski with a small group of about 4 guys for several laps. This was a very fun competition and it is always fun to do a mock competition with more than just my team on a very nice hill and course. You can check out a video of my competition jump here!
