We had another great day (high in the 60’s) and managed the ski without any technical problems. The boys and Rosie added a couple of extra 5 km loops and that kept the group together perfectly through our short lunch break. Total ski length ranged from 65 to 75 km. Everyone did very well and enjoyed the sauna and swim at the end of the ski.br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/Sn85juMYznI/AAAAAAAAAjk/wJ8-cu2-Dvs/s1600-h/100_3402.JPG”img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/Sn85juMYznI/AAAAAAAAAjk/wJ8-cu2-Dvs/s320/100_3402.JPG” border=”0″ alt=””id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5368072566707113586″ //abr /Walker and the girls took an extra long lunch break at 40 kms (the Saxtons River Rec.).br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/Sn84pzhX_KI/AAAAAAAAAjc/QCvVqm3u8xM/s1600-h/100_3409.JPG”img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/Sn84pzhX_KI/AAAAAAAAAjc/QCvVqm3u8xM/s320/100_3409.JPG” border=”0″ alt=””id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5368071571704904866″ //abr /Rosie took a lead at 60 kms and none of the boys complained.br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/Sn84Bn8ogVI/AAAAAAAAAjU/B7eFh2z_8fI/s1600-h/100_3410.JPG”img style=”float:left; margin:0 10px 10px 0;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/Sn84Bn8ogVI/AAAAAAAAAjU/B7eFh2z_8fI/s320/100_3410.JPG” border=”0″ alt=””id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5368070881403240786″ //abr /For some odd reason, there are several traditions associated with this ski. There is the “green jersey” awarded to the winner of the town and county line sprints (Austin Caldwell was this years winner) and the coveted yellow jersey awarded to the first person in the water. br /This year the lead group consisted of most of the boys and Rosie. They had skied 70 km when they hit West Hill and the last 4 km up to JC’s pond and sauna. Patrick decided to single stick the hill so the yellow jersey competition was wide open. Half way up the hill at Green Mtn Orchards, Doug, Bridger, Rosie and Austin pulled out in a small lead pack. Doug pushed the pace up the next set of hills and managed to get some distance on Rosie, but Bridger and Austin covered him easily and the three hit the last 1.5 km of rolling terrain together. Here Doug made a tactical error and gave up the lead. Bridger, who is the best sprinter, took the lead and slowed the pace to shorten the race. His tactic worked perfectly and when they hit the dirt road for the last 200 meters, Bridger sprinted ahead and was first to the pond (picture below shows Bridger’s feet, with Austin in hot pursuit).br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/Sn81N7Dkg_I/AAAAAAAAAjM/RFCNmAx5ISo/s1600-h/100_3411.JPG”img style=”float:right; margin:0 0 10px 10px;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/Sn81N7Dkg_I/AAAAAAAAAjM/RFCNmAx5ISo/s320/100_3411.JPG” border=”0″ alt=””id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5368067794156159986″ //abr /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/Sn801iWnHZI/AAAAAAAAAjE/-ISee4ET2ck/s1600-h/100_3414.JPG”img style=”float:left; margin:0 10px 10px 0;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/Sn801iWnHZI/AAAAAAAAAjE/-ISee4ET2ck/s320/100_3414.JPG” border=”0″ alt=””id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5368067375208275346″ //abr / On the way home, the boys showed signs that they’d had a good workout.br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/Sn80KbaDh5I/AAAAAAAAAi8/Kcyh1QSIEY4/s1600-h/100_3416.JPG”img style=”float:right; margin:0 0 10px 10px;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/Sn80KbaDh5I/AAAAAAAAAi8/Kcyh1QSIEY4/s320/100_3416.JPG” border=”0″ alt=””id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5368066634609297298″ //adiv class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/4680416899705879324-7317039903746592859?l=smsxc.blogspot.com’//div
