GRP Skiers at Falun World Cup

Over the weekend, Green Racing Project skiers competed in the final European World Cup races of the season in Falun, Sweden. With the Drammen sprints just four days prior, the turnaround to Falun was a tight one. Kaitlynn Miller, as the SuperTour leader, competed in both the freestyle sprint and 10k freestyle, while Ida Sargent raced the sprint.

In Saturday's sprint, skiers faced one of the shorter World Cup sprint courses, but also one with very technical downhills. In spring conditions, some of the downhill corners accumulated deep slush and ruts that took out many skiers. In the qualifier, Sargent finished 37th, just over one second from the top 30. Miller fell prey to a slushy corner in her qualifier and ended up 61st.

The following day was a 10k freestyle individual start. Miller ...

Vermont Victory at EHSC

Last Friday through Sunday, several hundred of the best high school skiers from New England descended on the wilds of Northern Maine for Eastern High School Championships. This three-day racing extravaganza was held at the Fort Kent Outdoor Center and had four race: 5k skate, 7.5k mass start, Nordic Cross sprint, and a mixed relay. Seven CNSC juniors represented Team Vermont at this championship event, helping Vermont bring home the overall team trophy.

After exiting the bus from the long drive to Fort Kent, racers readied themselves for 5k individual start races. If you recall, Friday was a very warm, spring-like day, adding extra challenge to the event with soft snow, but this did not deter the Craftsbury crew from turning in podium worthy race results!

The fabled race is back Saturday, April 20! It's Craftsbury groomer Keith Woodward's favorite race (he also doubles as course designer and chief organizer). The exact course is TBD as the day draws nigh, but the plan is that you'll start your day on our ski trails with ~9k freestyle, followed by ~5 miles of running, a ~5 mile paddle, capped with a 12mi bike on lovely Kingdom dirt roads in mud season.

Map of 2018 routes (see pages of pdf for individual legs)
