That was a long 9 days of the Tour de Ski and I am tired. Not tired like the athletes, my body is well rested but my mind is done. 3 countries, 4 locations, 7 races, over 1000km of driving, and with all the big bosses in town...lot's of networking in the evening. Another tough final climb for Kikkan today, but still a strong Tour overall. The races finished up today on Alpe Cermis. I think the total climb is something around 3 km up an alpine hill. Val di Fiemme where the past two days of racing occurred has been hit by a winter heat wave. Temps near 10c each day. We will be back here in 40 days for the World Championships. I am sure it will be just as busy but hopefully I will be able to see more of Cavalese. I have stayed here twice now and never seen the town except to drive to the race site. Again, this is another beautiful, historic part of the world.
