There have been, by FasterSkier’s calculation, 37 distinct nations that have seen at least one athlete start a World Cup race this season. The first 22 of them were surveyed following the opening weekend of racing in Ruka, in what now seems like a dispatch from another era in which all Scandinavian countries competed and Jessie Diggins was still rounding into form. This article surveys the next 15 who competed on subsequent World Cup weekends,...

No one knows what the 2020/2021 World Cup season will bring by its end, but for three days, at least, its beginning felt like a spectator-less success. While a handful of familiar nations clogged the top of the results sheet – Norway, Sweden, Russia (plus Rosie Brennan’s time-of-day podium in the pursuit!) – there were in fact athletes from a total of 22 nations racing in the opening World Cup weekend in Ruka. That means...

  Cross-country World Cup sprinters are prepping in Planica, Slovenia where the snow is sparse and the wax buses look lonely.   So as Period I on the World Cup comes to a close this weekend, it’s worth taking a look back at an ideal Davos winter-mix: snow and sunshine. Choosing between a Polycarbonate & PVC fake id can be a tricky decision. That fake is going to serve as an asset for years to...

A national team uniform for cross-country skiing has to do a lot of things. At the most utilitarian level, it has to wick sweat and aid performance while an athlete pursues one of the world’s most demanding sports at temperatures between –4 F and 40, in steady snow or driving rain or anything in between. At the functional level, it has to let spectators and coaches identify where their athlete is out on the course,...

HATCHER PASS, above Palmer, Alaska — The phrase “early season skiing” tends to evoke several things for your average skier: Dark. Cold. Rock skis. November. And so on. Think a training opportunity to be endured as much as enjoyed. Happily enough, none of these things was in evidence Sunday morning at Hatcher Pass, elev. 3,500′, in Independence Mine State Historical Park in the Talkeetna Mountains above Palmer, Alaska. The sun was out. The views were...

As we start to close out the race season, we wanted to provide a link to John Lazenby’s gallery from the Québec City, Canada World Cup finals. The dichotomous weekend was the World Cup beginning for some and a stop for others like Canada’s Alex Harvey and the U.S. Ski Team’s Ida Sargent — both are retiring from World Cup racing.         buy chantix online, buy ventolin inhaler buy albuterol inhaler,buy combigan online,buy chantix,buy...

  Vermont based photographer John Lazenby was recently immersed in Seefeld, Austria shooting images of the World Championships. We’re posting this gallery with a few select images from Lazenby’s shots. There’s some culture and some race grit.  Two weeks at the world nordic ski championships in Austria meant a lot of people met, a lot of stories seen and heard, and a lot of photos taken, from the ski jumper flying toward the Alps to the...

  Here at FasterSkier, the primacy of the written word is often emphasized. We remain text driven, but we have delved into videos to help our readership learn more about the sport and of course, we rely on the eyes and vision of sport photographers to deliver visual stories in a way words simply cannot. John Lazenby is a model of the artist and the deep-in-the-trenches photographer who creates some of the images we feature...

While most people have moved on to other sports by May, the more obsessive skiers are starting the new training year on snow. Canada’s “first” cross-country ski “races” of the 2017/2018 season were held on May 6. “First” because, while we haven’t exhaustively researched this, it was the first Saturday after May 1, which is the traditional new year for the Northern Hemisphere. “Races” is also a bit misleading as most athletes were viewing the events as an opportunity...
