Many of the top skiers from the region showed up to do a hard effort this morning. Most were on training skis and a few people were just working out, but it certainly felt like a race.
Fitzy did approximately 5 km, twice around the loop.
Here she charges down the hill in Murphy’s field, getting in a solid forward position.
MK is still feeling the effects of three consecutive races at the end of an altitude camp, but she still finished well in a pack of strong collegiate and post-collegiate skiers.
Heidi and Toine found each other at some point out there and skied much of the race together.
Heidi was a strong fourth place, only four seconds off the podium.
Ryley’s hip has been bothering him, and he only skied one lap. We’ll get him going for the first Eastern Cup, here next weekend.
Hans skied a two-lap workout, working on engaging his core and getting in good positions while going fast.
It’s always great to have Antoine around. He came down from Canada to race and to wish Dev a happy birthday. Not too long a drive and it was fun getting to hang out in the van with the team after the race.
Dev turned 17 today. Nice! Here he churns it up in front of the barn in Murphy’s field.
Dev took bib 1 and skied an awesome race, finishing in the middle of a pack of great skiers.
Heidi and Toine celebrate working together on the course after a hard effort.
