US Nationals wrap up today with the pursuit races at Soldier Hollow. Its the last race of the Championships and skiers 'on the bubble' will need to make it happen today.
It is hard to speculate who the winners will be, because some of the top names might not race. It has been a long week with 5 races in 8 days. All of the skiers are tired. Those who have secured Olympic berths may choose to sit this one out and instead start focusing on Olympic preparation. Kikkan Randall, already secure as the Grand Champion of these Nationals, will not be racing.
But others may need this race to get on the Olympic team. Today will give them one last grueling shot at glory.
