Continental CupRacingFinally A SuperTour Win For Shayla Swanson

FasterSkier FasterSkierJanuary 28, 2006

Shayla Swanson has racked up several top-3 finishes in Midwest SuperTour races recently. Today however she finally did just enough to win the SuperTour 5k classic at Telemark, edging the strong Russian Natasha Naryshkina by 1.5 seconds.



Natasha Naryshkina leading the A-Final of the sprint earlier this week at Telemark

Naryshkina, always a fierce fighter when it comes to racing, held off APUNSC's Erin Hood by exactly 5 seconds on a course that featured almost continual climbing and descending. The 101 women, who started before the men today, got to ski on fast, hard ice thanks to an overnight freeze and a very warm couple of days prior to the race. While this made for some nice easy glide, it also meant that a few of the fast downhill turns were less than easy to navigate.

University of Alaska Fairbanks skier Johanna Turunen was the next racer behind Hood, only another four seconds back for fourth place, while Kate Whitcomb (Team FSx/Maine Winter Sports Center) held off Canadian Jacqui Benson by just 1.3 seconds for fifth place. The entire time spread from 1st to 6th place was under 20 seconds–a close race indeed.

In contrast to Wednesday's classic sprint at Telemark, today's race was very well attended by college teams, juniors, and citizen racers, with over 150 men and 101 women finishing the main SuperTour events and approximately an additional 140 skiers competing in various other race categories/distances. Overall it was a great day of racing with spring-like sunshine, warm temperatures, a great course, a big crowd of spectators and participants, and a crew of organizers and volunteers that managed to run everything very smoothly.
