Atomic’s Nordic Director, Rick Halling, caught up with Chris Cook right after the US Ski Team training camp in Lake Placid. Chris is a USSA National Champion, NCAA National Champion and 2006 Olympian. The boy from Rhinelander, Wisconsin is known for being equally competitive in skate and classic events.
RH: Man, you just plain whupped the field in the sprints at last year’s Nationals. What did you have for wax that day?
CC: I can’t really recall what I had on the boards. Chris Grover and Rick Kapala did a lot of testing that morning and just handed me the fastest pair. I’m not sure what was on them.
