Oh, my goodness. I’ll post some pictures later, but we are all in Schladming, Austria for this ICMDA conference.
And we’ve been watching a transformation of the area over the last several days in anticipation of the final World Cup Mountain Bike championships taking place here this weekend. We’ve seen parts of the downhill course, and I cannot even imagine someone can RACE down this mountainside. The orange pads strapped to trees gives me an idea of just how dangerous this route is.
We told some folks at breakfast that it might be comforting for them to know that there are physicians from around the world meeting here right now — including orthopedic surgeons!
I presume that this will be televised on some of the round-the-clock sports channels. So if you want to see the real beauty of where we currently are…tune in!
