GRP Skiers End Season at SuperTour Finals

Sun Valley, ID is a favorite location for Spring Series, the SuperTour races which mark the end of the competition season for most US Nordic skiers. With sunny skies, spring skiing conditions, and the strongest domestic fields of the 2014-2015 season, this year was no different. The Green Racing Project sent 5 women and 4 men to race SuperTour Finals and US Distance Nationals Championships, held at Galena Lodge in Sun Valley over the week of March 21-26th.

10/15k Classic Individual
The GRP kicked things off on Saturday the 21st of March with a 10/15k classic individual. Cold overnight temperatures combined with warm days to create a treacherously icy track, made especially challenging by klister conditions. On the GRP women’s side, only Caitlin Patterson and Emily Dreissigacker ...

GRP Biathlon at World Cup & US Champs

Last weekend marked the season finale for American biathletes both at home and abroad (...that is, until Craftsbury's Spring Super Sprint Biathlon Race!). Hannah Dreissigacker and Susan Dunklee were the lone female members of a selective US contingent competing at World Cup 9 in in Khanty-Mansiysk, Siberia, Russia, while Clare Egan and Mike Gibson represented the GRP at US Biathlon National Championships in Truckee, California.  

In Friday's World Cup sprint, Hannah Dreissigacker led team USA with a new personal best result of 14th place, missing just one single shot in prone. Susan Dunklee suffered four misses on the range, but skied the fifth-fastest course time to finish 26th. In Saturday's pursuit competition, both US women missed five shots, which caused Hannah to slide back to ...
