Here is some rough video footage from last weekend's SuperTour classic sprints at Soldier Hollow. The races were won by University of Utah skiers Even Sletten and Kjersti Boe. Second and third in the men's and women's races respectively went to Reid Pletcher (SVSEF) and Marshall Greene (Alpina/Madshus/XC Oregon), and Kristina Strandberg (Subaru Factory Team/XC Oregon) and Laura Valaas (US Ski Team/APU). For more on these races see last weekend's article: http://www.fasterskier.com/racing4851.html .
Our apologies for the shakiness of some parts of the videos – while the beautiful open landscape at Soldier Hollow makes it possible to see nearly the entire race from one location, keeping the camera rock steady when zoomed in 1500% can be tricky! Given the lack of SuperTour coverage by the major tv news networks however, we thought this would still be worth sharing. Please enjoy what you can.
