MIDWAY, Utah — Racing concluded at Junior Nationals on Saturday with a series of incredibly close relays. The 3×3 k course took the top skiers a mere five-and-a-half to seven minutes to complete, and the blisteringly fast descents created drafts that could change the entire race. Shown above is the J1/OJ boys’ relay, in which Rocky Mountain swept both age divisions.
An exciting week of skiing preceded the relay, and in case you missed any of the action, we’ve compiled links to all our video coverage below — because embedding all 19 of them in one post would be a bit crowded.
