After heaving themselves up Mt. Disney at Sugar Bowl Resort, several of top finishers were pretty animated about the 6 k hill climb on the last day of SuperTour Finals. Here are some of the best quotes outside of the men’s and women’s race reports.
Erik Bjornsen thought he was done for. The 21-year-old U.S. Ski Team and APU skier had gone out too hard, too early in Monday’s 6 k freestyle hill climb before the real ascent up Sugar Bowl Resort even started. Somehow, he found at least three more gears and beat Kris Freeman to the top for his first SuperTour Finals title.
