Kickin’ it.

Garrott KuzzyJanuary 9, 2010

Just wrapped up the 2010 Nationals in Anchorage.  It’s been a bittersweet week of racing and today was no exception.  I ended up qualifying first in the classic sprint, which is the first time I’ve ever qualified first at Nationals (after 3 consecutive 2nds).  I’d been considering double-poling the course on skate skis, but in the end decided to kick it on classic skis.  Definitely the best decision.  Unfortunately, my afternoon ended early with a crash in the quarter final.  No one’s fault but my own, simply going too fast for my own good and tripping myself up coming out  of a fast corner.  Congrats to the All-Alaskan final in the men’s sprint.

Got lots of packing and sleep to catch up on before a long travel day tomorrow.  I’ll hopefully get time and internet at the airport tomorrow morning for a more detailed update on the week.  For now, I’ll leave you with some shots from Ian Harvey & Toko.
