"It's hard to believe that the season is coming to a head and it's already time for World Championships to begin. This year will be my 5th World Championships and it will take place in Lahti, Finland. The season has been a fun one, with a high point being that I was able to take a trip to South Korea to race on the courses that will be used for the Olympics in Pyeongchang next year. There, I was able to get my first individual podium since 2015 in Rybinsk, Russia."
