GRP Athletes Compete at Holmenkollen and Drammen World Cups

The World Cup season is winding down, which usually means it's time for the annual stop in Oslo, Norway, for two of the biggest events of the year. On March 9 and 10, Oslo hosted the iconic Holmenkollen 30/50k ski races. Then, two days later racing moved to Drammen, Norway for city sprints. The races boast some of the largest and rowdiest crowds of the season, with campfires lining the courses and spectators camped out for day before. Four GRP athletes competed in either the Holmenkollen or Drammen, or both.

On Saturday, women raced 30k classic on the tough Oslo courses, and GRP athlete Kaitlynn Miller finished 42nd. The next day, the men raced 50k on the same courses. Adam Martin finished 31st, just outside the points, and a new personal best World Cup result for him. Ben Lustgarten ...

TNR #11 Results

TNR #11 was "groomer's choice" - a mystery course decided upon by Keith Woodward, which 34 racers took on in a freestyle interval start. Some racers chose skate skis, while some chose classic, and some even chose very short skis to tackle the wooded sections. The course first headed to Murphy's Field for a tour around the rolling bumps course Keith groomed into it. It then veered off for a quick singletrack bit and some Duck Pond to reach The Wiggle, after which it traveled down some of Lemon's Haunt and then onto Woodward's Wheelie. Racers took the Wheelie all the way down to the North End, before finishing on ski trail, taking the Race Loop Bypass into to lower field and the finish.

It was quite an excursion, and was won by Ethan Dreissigacker on the men's side and Audrey Mangan on ...
