Tour and Giro route on rollerskis...
AJ and Chamberlain on the lower switchbacks (tornante). Both days we did workouts here the Canadian team was also rollerskiing here. I guess both the Tour De France and Giro De Italia have stages that have gone over this pass.
Chris Grover taking video of Chris Cook in an interval session (4 x 6mins, 8 to 10mmol) as we follow the skiers up the pass.
Can you find the rollerskier in this photo? Yikes.
Dave Chamberlain (last year's overall super tour winner gets to go to the early season World Cups) doing threshold intervals on the pass.
Another tunnel. This pass takes off below Courmeyeur (Pre Saint Didier) and cruises up over the San Bernardo pass into France.
We rolled intervals right through town. Station D'hiver...r i g h t...
Cook above La Thuile.
Torin Koos - classical sprints.

Went for a ski yesterday here at Soldier Hollow with Andrew and Kris. The skiing was perfect and the crew at SoHo set us up with a waxing cabin and the always standing offer to help us out - Thanks guys - and thanks for the great skiing.
The F.I.S says that the Cogne World Cup is on - a shortened version and no longer a pursuit. If the race really does happen it will be hard to watch being over here, but the training is going great and there is no looking back.
