TNR #8 Update: Team Sprint

Team sprint coming to TNR! TNR #8 on 2/19 will follow the team sprint format (albeit with only one round), wherein teams of two will tackle a short sprint course for three laps per racer, completing a relay tag in between each lap. The technique is freestyle, and all teams will be starting together. Should be fun, fast, exciting, and a bit more complicated than our standard TNR! 

As such, we ask that if you know you'll be participating, please try to find a partner in advance of Tuesday, and email your team pairing to tnr@craftsbury.com. And as always, but perhaps even moreso for this week, please pre-register!

We will assist with pairing up ...

Green Racing Project Rowers at C.R.A.S.H-B. Sprints

When as much of your year is spent with ice covering your body of water as our Green Racing Project athletes, you obviously spend plenty of time on the ergometer over the course of the year. The men on our GRP Rowing side of the team headed down to Boston this past weekend to join in on the pinnacle of erging, the C.R.A.S.H.-B. Sprints 2,000m race with almost a thousand other participants of all ages and categories. 

This was the first year in a new venue, the Boston University Indoor Track and Field arena with a full crowd of spectators reaching deafening volumes towards the end of each round of 2ks. C.R.A.S.H.-B. format, for anyone unfamiliar, is a one-and-done 2k for each age group and division. Each category sits down together and when the buzzer goes off, it’s a mad dash to the ...

Yesterday's TNR was an 8k classic mass start on Ruthie's Run, following a swap in the schedule. The race took place as the snow began to fall, but the tracks were still hard and fast. Nils Koons won in a blistering time of 22:09.9, followed less than a minute back by Ethan Dreissigacker. Third place went to Maxfield English.

Jenny McIlvane took the win for the women's race, followed closely by Trina Hosmer, who was just under 11 seconds back. Amelia Circosta finished third.

Full results here, and series standings here

Syd EHS qualifier

CNSC Juniors Secure Spots for EHS and U16 Championships

Last Saturday, hundreds of Vermont high schoolers braved cold and wind for the Eastern High School/U16 Championship Qualifier. The competition was originally slated for Rikert Nordic Center in Ripton, but a late afternoon technical difficulty forced a last-minute change to Sleepy Hollow in Huntington. This is a high stakes day of racing, with berths on the Vermont U16 Championship and Eastern High School Championship teams on the line. To test a skier’s versatility and endurance, there is a classic 3k in the morning and a skate 3k in the afternoon. U16s will be at the Bethel Village Trails in Bethel, Maine March 8-10, while Eastern High Schools will be in Fort Kent, Maine from March 15-17. 20 U16s are named to the U16 Championships and 24 high schoolers are named to the EHS teams. ...

Sargent Races Double Sprint Weekend in Lahti, Finland

After a short break from World Cup racing, Ida Sargent was back in action for a double sprint weekend in Lahti, Finland. Lahti recently played host to World Junior and U23 World Championships, and the course is known for the long downhill stretch into the stadium, which tends to bring the field together for close sprint finishes.

On Saturday, racers took on an individual freestyle sprint. Sargent qualified in 26th, one of three American skiers to make the heats. She was in the first quarterfinal heat along with teammate Sophie Caldwell. After a mass sprint to the line, the entire heat finished within 0.6 seconds. Sargent took 6th, and 30th overall on the day. Sargent's USA teammate Caldwell was able to advance to the A Final, where she finished 2nd.

The following day, Sargent teamed up ...
