We persuaded Gabbi to come back for another episode following her very successful podcasting debut last month and she brought another great guest with her in Canada’s technical specialist Marie-Michele ‘Mitch’ Gagnon. They discuss Mitch’s summer preparation and plans for the World Cup season, her thoughts on the Winter Olympics and we hear about her new business venture. The Canadian racing veteran has won two World Cup races in her career, both in alpine combined, and she’s focused on her third Olympic Winter Games. Gabbi also has the latest Alpine skiing news including an update on the proposal from Lindsey Vonn to race the men, and the FIS new pregnancy rule to provide pregnant athletes similar point and WCSL protections as injured athletes.
