FasterSkier FasterSkierDecember 9, 2006

Skiing under clear blue skis against the stunning backdrop of the Boulder Mountains, Kris Freeman(USST) jammed around a 10km classic course at Galena Lodge to take the win in the 6th event of the USSA Super Tour. Just back from Europe, Kris showed no effects from travel as he lead from start to finish with what turned out to be a 17 second margin of victory over Canadian National Team Skier Drew Goldsack. Third went to Dan Roycroft from Canada while Sean Crooks (winner of the Wednesday Super Tour Sprint) just missed the podium with a 4th. Lars Flora (APU/Salomon) of the was a scant 3 seconds off of Crooks for Fifth. Junior Reid Pletcher (SVSEF) proved Wednesday’s 8th place overall in the ST Sprint was no fluke as he backed it up with a 12th place overall finish in Saturday’s much deeper field and he was also just 5 seconds out of tenth. Juniors Taylor Sundali and Mike Matteson, both also with the SVSEF also landed on the Junior Men’s podium

Canadian Amanda Ammar kept her train on track with a strong win in the Women’s 5km Classic. Ammar, who placed 6th in the Pursuit at World Junior Championships last season, seems to like her new racing life in the senior ranks just fine. Caitlin Compton (CXC) also should no signs of slowing down from her past Super Tour performances as she skied to a solid second place just 8 seconds off the pace. Tasha Bertcherman from the Canada Club Team, Indie 2010, took third just 3 ticks of the clock off Compton. Madeleine Williams from the Canadian National team was 4th and Tazlina Mannix(APU) was Fifth. Rounding out a Junior Guys and Gals Sweep for the day by the SVSEF squad was Alexa Turzian, who finished as the top junior women and 9th overall. Also on the Junior podium were Liz Stephen (USST) in 2nd / 14th overall and Rosie Brennan of the NSF/Park City Team 3rd Junior Women and 17th overall.

The Final Sun Valley Super Tour event will be held Sunday, again at Galena Lodge with the Women skiing a 15km Mass Start Skate race and the Men doing a 30km Mass Start event. There will also be Junior Girls 5km and a Junior Boys 10km events held. After Sun Valley, the Super Tour moves to Soldier Hollow for races on Dec 16/17.

Other notes from today:

The course generally featured a lot of gradual terrain with no real long steep climbs. Some long gradual downhills made for some very long “rests” during the race. It was still very challenging thanks to the 7200' elevation.

Snow conditions were fairly abrasive, with many people using a klister binder with hardwax over the top despite the seemingly powdery conditions. Temps were quite cold in the morning (around 7 degrees) warming to the teens or so during the men's race. The sun continued to warm things up further and conditions were quite pleasant by the women's 5km race at noon.

Today's races featured probably the most competitive fields seen in North America yet this year, with most of the US and Canadian national teams present, as well as quite a few other top Canadians from x-c.com and Indi2010 in addition to the usual field of elite US skiers.

There is a chance of a little snow before the 30k / 15k mass start skate races tomorrow. Women at 10am, men at noon. All on the same 5k course.
