Ski cross world champion Chris Del Bosco is set to make his return to the slopes at the Olympic test event at Sochi, Russia next week.

The 30-year-old, who lives in Montreal, Que., missed the start of the 2012-13 season after separating his shoulder during training. That was shortly before the Nakiska Snowdown in December.

Del Bosco expects a seamless transition from his rehabilitation to head-to-head competition.

“Everything feels good. I’m ready to go,” said Del Bosco. “It’s hard when you are sitting on the sidelines but thankfully everything’s gone as planned with the rehab.

“I feel strong – I think I’m in a good place. Racing is what I love to do so I’m stoked.”
