Sochi-The Final Race!

Women's skeleton world cup race:

February 15th, at 9:30 p.m. Friday night MST.
It will be live on YouTube at the following link:

Noelle Pikus-Pace will be going off 3rd.  We are hoping for a top 6 finish.  She has had tractors and bulldozers running 24/7 outside her window, so she has had some rough nights and little sleep.  This unfortunately results in poor concentration in a sport where your reflexes need to be precise.

We have faith, Go Noelle!!

World Championships Silver! Congrats Noelle!!!


For a brief recap of the World Championships race in St. Moritz.  Noelle Pikus-Pace finished in 2nd after the 2 day event.  She posted the 2 fastest times on the 2nd day closing in on the lead.  The most important thing about her silver medal finish in this race, is this:  Noelle earned a bye onto the US World Cup team for the 2013-2014 season!

The kids and I returned home last week, along with Noelle's parents and sister Amanda, while Noelle continued onto her final race in Sochi, Russia.  They call this World Cup race the Olympic test event.  This race is scheduled to take place on Saturday, Feb 16 at 6:00 a.m. MST, but I just received news that the race may take place Friday night at 9:30 p.m. MST.  It should be live on Youtube as usual.

Please keep checking back, I will have the site updated no later than Friday with the official time.
