Liz Stephen and Ivan Babikov won the pursuit races at Birch Hill on Friday. Full results can be found HERE. The CXC Elite team had an excellent day with Caitlin Compton placing 9th, Kristina Owen 10th, Maria Stuber in 13th, Johanna Winters in 17th, Heather Zimmerman in 29th, Garrott Kuzzy in 5th, Bryan Cook in 7th, Brian Gregg in 12th, Andre Watt in 18th, and Guz Kaeding in 44th. We have had awesome skis in all the races so far. Everyone is very grateful for our support crew of Bryan Fish, Bill Pierce, and Wayne Fish.
About 2 inches of fresh snow fell on the morning of the race, and the tracks were very soft making for a difficult race. Articles on the pursuit races can be found HERE (men) and HERE (women). I have lots of photos from the men’s race, but I will not be able to post them until I get home. There are some photos from the pursuit race included in the article HERE.
Tomorrow is the 30/50K classic. This is the last race of the season. I will not be racing, but look for more great results from the CXC Elite team tomorrow.
