Howe 6th in US Champ Sprint
Last Updated: 03.Jan.2013
Alex Howe made it an exciting day for the GRP at the opening race of the 2013 US National Championships. Under sunny skies in Solder Hollow, Utah, Howe made it all the way to the A Final before settling for sixth place in a stacked round where former US Ski Teamer Torin Koos took the win.
Vermeer and Reynolds also saw quarterfinal action on the men's side, while the rest of the men missed the cut in a disappointing day for the squad overall.
On the ladies side Egan and Patterson both reached the quarterfinals as well but failed to reach the next round. Stuber opted not to race in preparation for the distance events.
Complete results are here. Next up is the 10/15km skate races on Friday where the team will look for some redemption on a challenging 5km loop.
