FasterSkierJanuary 27, 2007

There were no surprises today as Overall Super Tour leaders: Caitlin Compton and Lars Flora again set the times to beat in the 5/10km Freestyle. Both Compton and Flora are members of the US 2007 World Championships Team to compete in Sapporo, Japan in mid February.

Caitlin Compton (CXC) distanced the rest of the field by 17.8 seconds, to win in a time of 12:10.3. The strong Women of NMU topped the collegiate field, taking the next 3 spots in the Super Tour. Lindsay Williams (NMU) was the top U23 skier as well, finishing in 12:28.1, just ahead of Lindsey Weir (NMU), 12.28.6 and Maria Stuber (NMU) 12:40.3. Elizabeth Quinley (Michigan Tech) was the top Junior finishing in 13:30.0 and the top J1 was Christina Mishica (Copper Country), 14:01.5.

Lars Flora (Subaru Factory), who has now won every race he has entered since taking the National Team Sprint title, skied the 10km course in 21:34.1. Garrott Kuzzy (CXC) continues his strong and consistent season finishing second in 21:52.8. In a tie for third, Bryan Cook (CXC) and Marius Korthauer (UAF) finished in 22:06.6. Korthauer was again the top U23 and top collegiate skier. Tim Cook (NMU) was the top Junior, 23:55.4 and Matt Pierce (Hayward High), 24:16.7 was the top J1.

Nearly 500 skiers raced on the Telemark Resort trails in Cable, WI for the 5/10km Freestyle Super Tour. The 5km race loop brought forth a variety of terrain and conditions. Thin snow cover on the outer portions of the loop required racers to balance carefully, take smart lines, and ski smoothly while near the stadium a mix of man made and natural snow provided a firm and flat platform to ski powerfully

The Central Grand Prix continues on Sunday at Telemark Resort with an interval start 10/15km Classical on Sunday. The course will be run along a 2.4km loop; schedule information is available at

Caitlin Compton (CXC): “It was great to race on a challenging course, even though the snow cover was thin on parts. I was happy with my race today and look forward to tomorrow.”

Lars Flora (Subaru Factory): “It was a good race for me today. There were a few dirty spots on the course, but everything worked out well and it was a great event. I have been feeling better and better about my races throughout the CXC Grand Prix. I look forward to tomorrow’s race.”
