Patterson and Sargent Score Points in All-Classic World Cup Weekend

The World Cup in Planica, Slovenia this weekend was a classic specialist’s dream. It featured two classic races, a sprint and a distance race, with plenty of sustained uphills for gradual striding. Three GRP skiers competed in Planica: Caitlin Patterson, Ida Sargent, and Ben Lustgarten.

Classic Sprint
Saturday’s race was a 1.4/1.6k classic sprint on a tough course with steep climbs and icy downhills. Qualification times for both the men’s and women’s races were around 3:30 minutes, placing it on the longer end for World Cup sprint courses. Ida Sargent qualified in 17th position, 6 seconds out from the winner. Patterson was 53rd in qualification. On the men’s side, Lustgarten placed 59th in the qualifier. Sargent raced in the 5th quarterfinal, and she placed 5th to end up 23rd ...

Juniors on the Podium at Second Eastern Cup

Amid what NENSA deemed “one of the most dramatic winter events in recent history,” racers from all over the east descended upon the Ripton, Vermont trail network. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the Rikert Nordic Center staff and volunteers, the second Eastern Cup of the season went off without a hitch. After Friday’s high 40’s and ample rainfall, Saturday brought cooler temperatures and sleet turning to snow, and then Sunday brought plunging mercury and howling wind making for tough conditions for athletes, coaches, volunteers, parents, race officials, and anyone else involved.

Saturday was a classic sprint day for all, where race organizers and Rikert staff creatively drew together a solid course despite snow loss. On the men’s side, Finn Sweet qualified for the open ...

Emily Dreissigacker Named to Olympic Team

Last week, Emily Dreissigacker was named to the US Olympic Team for Biathlon. She is set to compete in Pyeongchang, South Korea in mid February. Emily is a member of the US National B team and trains both in Craftsbury and with the National Team in Lake Placid.

Emily had solid results throughout the rollerski trial season, with a standout victory in a sprint race in October. She was then selected to travel with the National Team to Canmore, Alberta for an early season training camp. From here, she was chosen to go to Europe for the pre-Christmas World Cups in Ostersund, Sweden and Annecy Le Grand Bornand, France. Not having the results needed for Olympic qualification, she was sent down the IBU Cup level after the New Year. Here, she was on fire in what was deemed the final “Olympic ...
