World Cup 2 - Seu d'Urgell, Spain

After two World Cup competitions, Canada is on a roll. This weekend in Spain 4 athletes made the semi-finals. Jessica Groeneveld of Innisfail had her personal best finish of 27th on the World Championship course from 2009. Jess was pleased with her performance and feels that an increased increased internal focus helped her along. Good lesson kids; there's no point worrying about what others are doing, because all you can control is yourself.

David Ford, John Hastings & Cam Smedley placed 13th, 27th and 28th respectively. Unfortunately Edmonton's Ben Hayward acquired a nasty bug in Prague and was not yet on form for the weekend of racing. I guess he didn't drink enough Coke to kill the bacteria in the water.

This weekend is Augsburg, Germany. Clean water, nice forests and lots of spectators await. Good Luck to all!
