In ‘99 I was able to capture my fourth World Title and we held the Red Bull Speed Event. That race was dedicated to creating an opportunity to go as fast as we could. Red Bull built a 7-story tower at the top of Vars. The racers were Philippe Billy, Harry Eger, and myself. I volunteered to be the first one off the tower. It was so steep it made the track look flatter, I didn’t know if my skis were going to auger in and I would flip over the front when I transitioned from the ramp to the course.  Unfortunately, the snow wasn’t fast enough but it was so much fun going off that tower on the top of that massive mountain of Vars. I had another big crash that year, too, and broke my back. But 99 was a great year, too. I held a big race in Snowmass that year, and more importantly, I had a little person coming into my life, Eleanore, our first daughter, who was born in December of that year. Life was transitioning quickly into my new priorities.
