FasterSkier FasterSkierJanuary 3, 2005

Ivan Babikov continued his winning ways at Soldier Hollow on Monday by winning the US Cross Country Championships 30K Free technique race. Andrew Johnson finished second (and first American) to take the National Title, while Carl Swenson was third.

Just before the halfway point in the race, Babikov overtook Johnson for the lead. Swenson and Chamberlain had maintained their positions behind Johnson, about 8 and 21 seconds back respectively. But Flora paid dearly for his fast start, losing 50 seconds to the leaders before halfway. At this point everyone else was over a minute behind. It was now a four person race.

Birthday boy Andrew Johnson (Greensboro, VT) collected the first U.S. title of his career.


“There've been a lot of times I thought I'd win one, but getting this first title, and getting it on the first day of the championships, feels good,” said Johnson, who took leave from his studies at Middlebury College to help start the U.S. Residency Program in neighboring Park City after the 1999 season. Now, the entire U.S. Cross Country Team trains in Park City during the preseason.


“This was definitely tough,” he said. “I started pretty well and I ended pretty well but there were some tough moments in the middle of the race. I got cramps in my legs at about 20 Ks; that slowed me down and I got the point where for a couple of Ks – mostly on the steep uphills – where I slowed significantly, but then the cramps went away.”


Johnson, who was 22nd in the 2002 Olympic 30K freestyle, said he could see some trail “tweaks and changes…but it's still as tough as ever.”


“It was tough, of course…a tough race on a tough course, but the guys got hit with a small storm of wet snow and that made some difference. The last lap was the deciding one,” Nystad said. “Andrew's win was very popular and coming on his birthday made it a little more special.”


Two veterans with plenty of experience on the Soldier Hollow courses – John Bauer and Nathan Schultz – skied strong races to finish 5th and 6th respectively.
