Between now and 2010 I'll be doing a lot of trips. In bobsleigh the world cup tour goes from November until march with a race every week and a break at Christmas, so while we go to 8-9 different venues in North America and Europe it really feels like 2 big trips, one before Christmas and one after.
On top of that we have training weeks at various tracks and we will soon be adding many trips to Whistler onto that. When I'm on the road sometimes its hard to stay healthy, if someone comes down with an illness we try to get them treated as fast as possible, and in the mean time try to reduce the chances of everyone else getting sick.
