Note: In our weekend race wrap up, we try to bring you results
from as many races as possible around the country. In most cases, we will provide
links to the results. If a race report has been sent to us, we will publish
that as well. If you don't see the race you are interested in, contact the race
organizers and have them send their race reports and press releases to FasterSkier.com.
Or send us an email with a link to the results.
This week we are going in a west to east, north to south kind of direction:
Alaska – Besh Cup – Fairbanks, Alaska
Alaska's premier race series continued in Fairbanks this weekend. One great

the race, thanks to Summit
Systems. This feature will be great for parents and fans during the upcoming
Junior Nationals in Fairbanks.

City Classic Results
Steamboat Stampede – Steamboat, Colorado
Nordic Combined skier Bill Demong and Alpina/Madshus Sarah Konrad won this 45K
Wilderness Trek – Ely, MN
2001 World Cup Sprint Champion Jan Jacob Verdenius made an appearance at
the Wilderness Trek this weekend and dominated the field. Apparently Verdenius
is currently in North Dakota. That all seems a bit strange to me, so anyone
who can explain it to me – please do.
