The 2011 US J1 Scando trip ended with a bang, as both men and women turned in excellent performances in 3×3/5km relays, capping three days of racing and generally strong US results. The US men led the way in the relay, battling at the front, and just missing out on the podium, placing fourth, 13.7 seconds behind the winning Norwegian team. The result did not come easily, and could have been better were it not...

Today was the last stage of our three-day race series in Örnsköldsvik; the relay. Needless to say, we were all psyched to get our game faces on and show those Europeans our best. It was a great day. The USA women all had great races with Marion, Camb...

HEY ALLA quick update from a tired crew! Today was awesome. We had 3 women and 3 men qualify for the rounds (big props to Big Logs qualifying in 4th) and a few within a second of making the heats. We re-dialed the skis for the rounds and off they we...

Today was a pretty chill day all in all. After breakfast the team hung out and got some homework done which was pretty successful. Almost all of the team went for a run before lunch. Then at about 3 we were out the door and headed to the venue. We we...

The PB out laying some cord at about 7 yesterday morning. They have a really cool map online here (which I of course found yesterday after the ski when we were about to leave) which uses a GPS to track where the groomer currently is and shows how rece...

The coaches (and friends) klister up in the kitchen to sneak out for a quick pre-lunch ski to work-off breakfast. [Still figuring out this Blogger interface, so you'll have to forgive that all the pictures are in reverse chronological order]That is som...

Today started out on a high note with pancakes made by Matt, Pete, and Kate. We topped them with nutella, strawberry jelly, pineapple, grapes, raspberries, kiwi, and bananas, along with a drizzle of yogurt (from a carton) on top. In a word they were…...

The report from BigLogs:So today, day three in this truly amazing place, started off with a non-traditional skiing activity.Us boys in room 12 “Rodins” decided to show off to the whole team by making breakfast for some of the gang. Breakfast so far...

We finally got our last stranded traveler tonight. Now we are really up and running. The weather got even warmer today which led to some seriously fast skiing. Some of the boys crossed paths with Robin Bryntesson doing some intervals after his recen...

The athletes and coaches are all on their way home now. Some were up as early as 4am in order to make their early flights. It was a great trip on many levels; and as ready to sleep in our own beds as some of us may be, I don't think anybody really want...
