Beth Reid, former Speed-Skating Champion, won the women's Silverrush, but all but 3 of the men.
Brooke Bauman of Sun Valley easily won the women’s Goldrush division (18th overall), with Katrina Smigun in 2nd and Sigrid Aas in 3rd.
The one-lap bronze rush, the Junior rush and several youth activities on Saturday rounded out a great weekend in sunny California. Royal Gorge donated all the race proceeds to the Far West Nordic Association, whose juniors are already looking ahead to next year’s Junior Olympics â€œacross the streetâ€ from Royal Gorge at Auburn Ski Club.
