Noah Hoffman made his return to the World Cup with a 38th-place finish in Sunday's 15 k freestyle in Östersund, Sweden. He led the American squad, which included first time World Cup racer Kyle Bratrud.
Susan Dunklee came within 3.1 seconds of a top 20 in 21st, which she was pleased with while wanting more. "Today certainly wasn’t our strongest team showing," she explained, citing their lack of on-snow time compared to other teams. "The season is long, and we still have time to tune up. We will get there."
