GRP Skiers Patterson and Guiney in Rogla OPA Cups

Green Racing Project skiers Caitlin Patterson and Liz Guiney traveled to Rogla, Slovenia last weekend to race OPA Cups against some of the best skiers from the OPA countries: Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, Germany, and Slovenia. Similar to USSA SuperTours, OPA Cups are the step below World Cup competition; however, in Europe the fields are generally composed of athletes who bounce between World Cup racing for their respective countries and the OPA Circuit.

Saturday, February 28th was a skate sprint on a short, fast course with most of the climbing concentrated towards the end. Caitlin had a strong qualifier, finishing 14th, and Liz was farther back in 21st. In the heats, Caitlin nearly made lucky loser by finishing 4th in her quarterfinal, but her time wasn’t quite fast enough ...

Ethan Dreissigacker at IBU Cup

This past weekend, Ethan Dreissigacker represented the US and the GRP at the International Biathlon Union (IBU) Cup 7 in Canmore, Alberta, Canada. The IBU Cup is a winter-long series of international biathlon races that is one tier below the World Cup. Following his strong performances at NorAm Cups 6 & 7 in February, Ethan was one of five US men selected to compete at IBU Cups 7 & 8, which are being held over consecutive weekends at the Canmore Nordic Center. Of the other four qualifiers, only two, Wynn Roberts (National Guard Biathlon) and Patrick Johnson (Far West Nordic) are competing. Russell Currier (MWSC) elected not to make the trip, and Casey Smith (also MWSC) suffered a severe crash while training on Friday before the races and was transported to a hospital in Calgary, ...

Patterson 5th in American Birkebeiner, Sargent races at World Championships

It was another jam packed race weekend for the Green Racing Project skiers as they near the end of the 2014-2015 season. Over in Falun, Sweden, Ida Sargent contested her first race of World Championships, while the stateside GRP members took on the American Birkebeiner and the Stowe Derby.

Four GRP skiers, two men and two women, made the long trip to Hayward, Wisconsin to race the 51k Birkie. Usually the marathon event is preceded by Elite Sprints on Main Street in Hayward, but this year plummeting temperatures forced the organizers to cancel the sprints and all focus was on the main event. The women’s elite wave was the first to start at 8 AM, and included GRP skiers Caitlin Patterson and Kaitlynn Miller. Although American Holly Brooks took the women’s win in Hayward, Caitlin P. ...
