Skiing at the World Criterium Races

A Little Personal Info

My photo
Hi, I'm Brad! I love the great outdoors and enjoy skiing. This blog is inspired by some of my many life experiences and world travels. I have a Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis and work to find solutions to some of the world's challenging energy and environmental problems. In 2011, I went back into competitive snow ski racing and won the USSA National Speed Series (Downhill and Super G) title for my class (M5). It was an amazing and fun year of skiing. I also enjoy being around all kinds of animals from horses to dogs and love to spend time at Tahoe, my little farm near Cool or traveling somewhere new around the world. I have been to Nepal and seen Mount Everest, to Alaska's Denali, the Matterhorn in Switzerland and even Maroon Bells near Aspen, CO. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my website.

Fall is here - getting ready for a great ski season!

It is hard to believe the summer is over.  We already have snow on the ground in the Sierras.  I drove up to our cabin in the Tahoe area just the other day and brought home my boat.  This is the third summer I have limited myself to only a half a tank of gas (23 gallons for the entire summer).  Just go easy on the throttle!

I put on my 2011 National Speed Series Championship Belt Buckle today!  Felt kind of cool to wear it for the first time...and you thought just rodeo cowboys wore big belt buckles!

I have been working out very hard at the gym.  The world championships are only about 5 months away and will actually be in the United States this year at Mammoth Mountain in California. 

That's 405 pounds on the Squat Rack.  Just the right amount
of weight for downhill leg strength!
