Wonsavage, Mallory Win Silver Fox Trot

FasterSkierJanuary 10, 2005

Stowe, VT (January 9, 2005): The Trapp Family Lodge trails weren’t home turf, but Ford Sayre Ski Club’s Dorcas Wonsavage (Etna, NH) won their annual Nordic race, the Silver Fox Trot, by just 12 seconds over Team Atomic’s Kate Underwood (Newmarket, NH). The freestyle Nordic race see-sawed back and forth over the 10km course, as first Underwood took the lead, and then Wonsavage leap-frogged ahead. They never saw each other on the course because of their individual starts, but the coaches’ splits changed with each section, each lap of the 3 loop course. In the end the battle pulled the two women far ahead of field, leaving 3rd place Elizabeth Harrington (Dartmouth Outing Club) 50 seconds behind Underwood, and UVM’s Emilia DeMarchis in fourth, 37:03.

The men’s 10km race was not a surprise, as UNH’s Chris Mallory took first with a time of 31:14. Mallory has had a season of epic battles with the U.S.Ski Team’s Freeman brothers and deserved this first place. In second by a minute was Craftsbury Nordic/Team Rossignol’s Nick Trautz. Middlebury College’s Jimmy Ades also had a superlative race, coming in third by just 5 seconds behind Trautz, but ahead of Team Rossignol’s Nicholas Mahood (Woodstock, VT) by 19 seconds. Several junior skiers entered the top 10 ranking usually reserved for the experienced adults. Besides Ades, an Older Junior (age 18-19) in 3rd, Craftsbury Nordic’s Ben Hickory (OJ) was 6th, Maine Nordic’s Nils Koons, a J1 (age 16-17) was 7th and Ford Sayre’s top man was J1 Sam Marshall, from Etna, NH!

In the Junior2 boys’ 5km freestyle race, Keith Kantack (Mt. Washington Nordic) from Jackson, NH had a stellar race, squeaking into third and a place on the podium amongst the Stratton Mountain School boys. Kyle Dewey led the way for SMS with a time of 22:08, followed by teammate Steven Bedard, 22:30, just five seconds ahead of Kantack. The final piece of the Stratton sandwich was SMS’s Fritz Horst in 4th, 22:51.

The Silver Fox Trot, the fifth race in the Banknorth Eastern Cup series, had been moved from Hanover, NH to the Trapp Family Lodge trails in Stowe, VT, for lack of snow. But the change of venue didn’t keep people from coming. Over 400 racers from across New England arrived for the chance to ski and race on the precious snow crystals. The Banknorth Eastern Cup resumes in Jackson, NH on January 23rd for the Jackson Jaunt 10 and 15km classic race.
