The race in Zagreb was OK.  My skiing was average and not up to par with my training, but this is the best result I've had here in the last 4 years and that makes me happy.  Three years ago I left this race in an ambulance with a broken thumb followed by surgery, two years ago a torn knee two months before the Olympics, and last year a minor concussion.   It's a weird spot for me, I think the city is awesome, the crowds are energetic and the hill is nothing crazy, it's a hill that I should be very well suited for.  Either way, Zagreb has left me with some of the biggest challenges to overcome in my career, which I feel like I finally have!  I am skiing fast, races have been up and down but overall I feel like I am back to where I left off two years ago before tearing my knee, or better.  It's been a bumpy few years with three surgeries in three years, lots of rehab, lots of "return to snow's" and lots of great improvements with myself and my team.  I'm excited for a healthy and strong 2012 and to continue working my way up the ranks in slalom.
