KUUSAMO, Finland (Nov. 28) – Kris Freeman (Andover, NH) was 20th Friday in a 15K classic technique World Cup race behind Norwegians Anders Aukland and Jens Arne Svartedal on the opening day of the self-styled “Nordic Opening” weekend in light rain and mid-30s weather.

“It was quite a good race for Kris. I had him on my [timing] splits at 16th with 2.5 Ks to go,” said Head Coach Trond Nystad. “It was tough conditions with the rain and about plus-1, plus-2 [35 F.] weather but we had good skis and he skied into the race, moving up as it went along. Kuusamo has some tough hills.

“It was a good classic race for Carl. Things are so tight on the World Cup now – 10 seconds faster and Kris could've been in the top 15 and if he'd been 20 seconds faster, he'd have been in the top 10.”

Aukland won the three-lap race in 37:35.4, finishing 8.5 seconds ahead of his teammate with Freeman timed in 38:19.1. Carl Swenson (Boulder, CO), the only other U.S. skier in the field of 90-plus, finished 74th.

Saturday, the women race skiathlon, a 7.5K classic and then 7.5K freestyle race, while the men ski a 15K CL and 15K skate race Sunday for their skiathlon before the tour moves on to Dobbiaco, Italy, for races Dec. 6-7.
