Kris Freeman spends most of the winter living out of a suitcases and a ski bag while racing World Cups in Europe representing the US Ski Team. This time of the year, he calls Andover, NH his homebase.
1. Another season in the bag. Can you share with us a re-cap of your
winter? Some of the highs, lows, anything else you care to share.
I had a very good season. I started the year with a top twenty in at the first world cup in Gaellivare Sweden and ended the year with a top twenty in the last world cup in Falun Sweden. I had four other top twenties inbetween, including my first top ten finish since 2003. I enjoyed racing well consistently and was having fun in all of my races except one. The 15k freestyle at the world championships was a heartbreaker. I picked that event as the focal point of my season and I felt fantastic the day of the race. Everyone reading this know that a snow squall came through and wreaked havoc on the field causing random results. My result was horrific and all I could do was sit in the snow in stunned silence after the race.
