XCFeedsU23 Classic Race

Avatar Sverre CaldwellJanuary 28, 2010

Today was the U23’s turn to rev it up. New snow and a tough course made it a demanding day. We had solid, but not spectacular results. Everyone gave it their all, but in this competition, you have to be spot on to get top results.br /The fresh snow made kicking a bit tricky. It was important to have a good pair of soft snow skis and to pace yourself on the hilly course. For those of you familiar with Soldier Hollow, think of the last big hill. There is a hill the same size on this course and another just a hair smaller…and… you need to do them both every lap (3 for girls, 4 for boys today). Tough course, you need to ski smooth and strong..the Russians were the best today. But we’re close and we’ll get after it tomorrow!br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/S2GyZnr3aFI/AAAAAAAACMg/39QxVjiyizY/s1600-h/IMG_2580.JPG”img id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5431818778804971602″ style=”DISPLAY: block; MARGIN: 0px auto 10px; WIDTH: 400px; CURSOR: hand; HEIGHT: 300px; TEXT-ALIGN: center” alt=”” src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/S2GyZnr3aFI/AAAAAAAACMg/39QxVjiyizY/s400/IMG_2580.JPG” border=”0″ //aFitz hammers over the last hill.br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/S2GyDzr5rpI/AAAAAAAACMY/NQUuhbEyfO0/s1600-h/IMG_2582.JPG”img id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5431818404069224082″ style=”DISPLAY: block; MARGIN: 0px auto 10px; WIDTH: 400px; CURSOR: hand; HEIGHT: 300px; TEXT-ALIGN: center” alt=”” src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/S2GyDzr5rpI/AAAAAAAACMY/NQUuhbEyfO0/s400/IMG_2582.JPG” border=”0″ //aRosie looking good.
