First Day in France

Wow! That is all I can say after my first full day in Europe. I don't ever think I've had a longer travel day in my entire life. On top of that, I've got about 8 hours of jet lag as I'm writing this. I left Denver this morning at 10:30 and continued to Washington DC, and then Geneva Switzerland.  Me and my coach Mike Hanley arrived in Geneva this morning at about 8 a clock and then proceeded to take a 3 hour bus ride from Geneva to Tinges, France. Tinges is where the European X Games are being held. The bus ride through the French countryside was amazing. I've never seen mountains like the alps before. It was like someone took the Colorado Rockies and pumped them up on steroids and then plopped them in Eastern France. Right now it is 6 a clock in Tinges and as of now, I've been awake for 20 hours straight since I left Denver this morning. I'm going to sleep like a baby tonight! Our first day of skiing is tomorrow. Here are a few quick photos from our arrival.

More updates to come. Stay tuned!
