Just a quick update from the Eastern Cup in Presque Isle. I crashed on the first corner in the sprint and despite my best efforts to salvage my qualifer, my day is over. I was 3rd man out, less than a second from qualifying. Briggs made it, as did Lauren and Chelsea. They’ll have fun in the rounds.
As for me, I’ve got to work on staying on my feet. Sprinting doesn’t leave much room for error (Bozeman also was evidence of this), so you can’t expect to ski rounds if you touch down on the course. Now it’s time to conserve energy for tomorrow’s 10k classic.
