Craftsbury Demo Days - this Weekend!

1 Dec 2014 @14:19

Join us at Craftsbury for our annual Demo Days event Saturday and Sunday, December 6 and 7, from 9am to 3pm both days. If you want to try out this year’s brand new skis, poles, wax, clothing and all the rest of the material that will make your skiing better than ever, this is the time and place!

You no longer have to sacrifice your Thanksgiving, hop on a plane or travel to far off locales to experience the new gear, just head on up to the NEK. With Reps’ and Retailers’ tents set up trailside to our snowmaking loop you can ski up, hop off your skis and onto a shiny new pair, and ski off to test on our loop of varied terrain. (You ski up and downhill, you should probably experience how your new gear works in a variety of conditions, right?)

We're working with the following manufacturers ...

Masters' Camps this December

26 Nov 2014 @14:30

Save the dates:

December 4-7, 2014
December 11-14, 2014

In response to the popularity of last year's Masters' Camp, we'll be offering two sessions of instruction this December. The first camp will be geared more toward newer skiers or those who haven't raced before; the second will be aimed more at the master skier who has been competing and wants to get faster.

Participants will get three days on snow (four if you get to campus early enough on Thursday) full of instruction. Coaching staff for the camps are being finalized but will include NENSA's Janice Sibilia, Gunstock's Nina Gavrylyuk, Craftsbury GRP's Pepa Miloucheva, GRP athletes, Craftsbury coaches and others. The curriculum consists of technique drills, longer base-building skis, video review to reinforce technical points, ...

GRP Finishes Strong at USRowing East Coast Fall Speed Order

11 Nov 2014 @15:42

While the Craftsbury Outdoor Center is buzzing with preparations for the upcoming winter season, the GRP rowers had one last race this weekend in Princeton, New Jersey. The USRowing East Coast Fall Speed Order is an informal race event that has a 6,000m ergometer test on Saturday before a 4,250m time trial in singles on Sunday. While there is no explicit selection on the line, this is one of the few opportunities for current and aspiring national teammembers to see where they stack up.

Saturday's erg test on the Concept2 indoor rower determines the start order for Sunday's time trial on the water, so there is a definite incentive to bring the power on the first day. Elizabeth Sonshine brought the fastest 6k for the women in 16th place, ahead of Emily Driessigacker in 20th and Maggie ...

GRP Biathletes Complete Second Set of Jericho Trials

28 Oct 2014 @21:17

Biathletes in the US face a unique set of challenges in qualifying for World Cup competition. Unlike in cross country skiing where the SuperTour leader gains an automatic World Cup start spot, in biathlon a series of trials races determine who attends the early World Cups. However, both sets of trials occur on rollerskis, which are notoriously different from real skis. In addition, one race weekend is in August while the other is in October, so athletes have to be on their game for a long period of time.

The GRP biathletes had a very solid showing for the second set of races this weekend in Jericho, VT (October 25th and 26th). Although Susan Dunklee and Hannah Dreissigacker were already pre-qualified for the early World Cup races, they still wanted top results to prove they were ready ...

GRP Reels in Top Finishes at Head of the Fish Regatta

26 Oct 2014 @17:36

Many of the fall rowing races are known for offering unique prizes to attract racers to compete. The GRP has sampled several of these this year: from the maple syrup and apple cider of the Green Mountain Head, hand-crafted beer steins for our own Henley-on-Hosmer, and one of the most unique: mounted and decorated fish heads from the Head of the Fish Regatta in Saratoga Springs, New York.

This weekend three of the GRP rowers went after their own fish heads in the single, and all three came back with a prize. Hugh McAdam won the men's light single by 42 seconds after a collision mid-race, Erik Frid won the men's open single by 9 seconds and Maggie Fellows won the women's open single by 36 seconds. 

Now the GRP is all back in Vermont and is braving the cold to prepare for the USRowing East ...

Sunday Medals for GRP at 50th Head of the Charles Regatta

21 Oct 2014 @15:38

There's long been a point of contention in the rowing world about who would win in a matchup between the best scullers in the world and the best sweep rowers. This weekend the Head of the Charles gave an answer, as the sculling "Great Eight"" won the Championship men's eight event under the banner of Craftsbury. The Small Boat Training Center and the sculling camps at Craftsbury have long sought to prove that sculling can help improve performance in all levels of the sport so this was a welcome confirmation at the Center. John Graves helped organize the sculling Great Eight which took athletes from 7 different countries that raced this year's world championships in the single, double or quad and took to the Charles in an eight for almost a week of training together for the event. ...

Saturday Recap from Head of the Charles

19 Oct 2014 @8:15

The first day of the 50th anniversary of the Head of the Charles is in the books, here's a report of the Craftsbury representation:

Dick and Peter Driessigacker were first to race along with Craftsbury coach emeritus Larry Gluckman, who rowed together in the "Motley"" rowing club 8 in the senior master division. The crew took 24th out of 55 senior master crews (age 50+), and was fourth in their own category of Grand Master crews (age 60+). GRP coach Dan Roock also took to the water in a majority Princeton alumni crew racing under Hingham Harbor. His crew was just behind the ""Motley"" entry in 25th place. Judy and Carly Geer raced with fellow 1980 Olympic teammates under the ""1980 rowing club"" where they took 8th place. 

Troy Howell stormed from the back of the pack in the men's ...

Singletrack Shootout Biathlon Race Wrap

8 Oct 2014 @16:59

It was another successful day on the range for Saturday’s Oktoberfest Singletrack Shootout biathlon race. We were lucky to have a great turnout of both novice and expert bikers and runners to make for a fun and competitive race that even avoided most of the rain that morning!

In the novice race, a couple of GRP rowers led the standings in the running race. Maggie Fellows handily took the victory in the women’s run with clean shooting (go Maggie!) while Phil Grisdela outran his competitors in the men’s run and even hit a couple of targets along the way. In the junior running category, Quincy Massey-Beirman took the women’s victory and while there weren’t any men’s junior runners, Sasha Charkasov was the top junior in the men’s mountain bike race. Notably, both women in the novice ...

Checkpoint Challenge Wrap

6 Oct 2014 @13:29

Eleven teams rose to the Challenge on Sunday to complete the 2014 Craftsbury Checkpoint Challenge (CCC) and its nine difficult stations. Beginning at 9:45am under blue skies, contestants ran about 7or 8 kilometers while traveling between checkpoints spread across the COC campus – as far north as the end of Race Loop, as far south as Elinor’s field, and ranging from the ski trails down to the waterfront.

Station 7, Tangrams, proved a consistent challenge. Teams had to memorize a geometric shape displayed on a sign, and then use wooden shapes to recreate it 30 or so yards away. In fact, time spent at that checkpoint ended up making the difference between the eventual winners – Ruthie’s Runners – and the previously defending champs, the Craftsbury Crazies, who ended up third this year. ...

GRP strikes Vermont gold at Green Mountain Head Regatta

1 Oct 2014 @16:12

The rowers kicked off the fall head racing season this past weekend at the Green Mountain Head Regatta in Putney, Vermont. The race is put on by the Putney Rowing Club and officiated by Graeme King, one of the top boatmakers in the country. The race has a unique vibe, always three weeks before the Head of the Charles with trailer parking in a corn field by the Connecticut River. The race is 5k long with two 90-degree turns halfway through to bring crews back to the start/finish line. Some of the tastiest prizes in rowing are awarded here, with maple syrup for first place, apple cider for second and a bag of local apples for third. 

Craftsbury started the season off on a strong note, with John Graves leading the charge in the men's single to take first place in a time of 18:56. ...

Deconstructing Wilbur's

22 Sep 2014 @9:00

If you’ve been around the Outdoor Center much this summer you may have noticed the slow disappearance of Wilbur’s, the building near the hoop houses at the end of Lemon’s Haunt. Wilbur’s is being deconstructed by ReSource and some of the salvaged material will be used by the Center while the remaining material will be sold to the ReSource Store, which provides families and individuals in crisis with building materials and reduces the amount of waste placed in landfills.

The Center purchased the building three years ago and reviewed options for its future. Ultimately, it was decided the building had issues that were hard to remediate: an outdated and energy inefficient construction style, it would have been difficult, and not cost-effective to upgrade to meet our needs.

2014 Climb to the Castle Race Report

10 Sep 2014 @9:04

For the first time in several years, the GRP skiers didn’t have a large contingent racing Climb to the Castle. Climb to the Castle, or C2C as it’s affectionately known, is an annual uphill skate rollerski sufferfest that ascends 5 miles at an 8% average grade to the top of Whiteface Mountain, just outside of Lake Placid, NY. The Climb to the Castle usually falls as one of the last workouts of the US Ski Team training camp in Lake Placid, and members of the US Biathlon and Nordic Combined teams have been known to jump in as well. However, this year only two GRP members, Caitlin Patterson and Ida Sargent, attended the USST Lake Placid camp and they both had to leave early to prepare for a 2.5 week long glacier training camp in Ramsau, Austria. Luckily, GRP biathlete Susan Dunklee was ...

Finals Racing in Amsterdam

30 Aug 2014 @14:06

Finals racing has been furious in Amsterdam, with world records being broken in many different event classes, some of which have stood for almost two decades. The lightweight quad was the first to race for the US and Craftsbury, making a statement in Friday's B final where they lead from wire to wire. The US won in a time of 5:54 ahead of Mexico, Uruguay and Brazil. 

Josh Konieczny and Austin Meyer were next to race in Saturday's B final of the men's lightweight double after coming in fourth from a photo finish in the A/B semifinal. The crew was 5th off the line and was locked in a tight battle all the way down, using a strong sprint to pass the Danish to take 4th at the line in a time of 6:19.5. Great Britain won the B final in a time of 6:16.7 and South Africa won the A final.

GRP Athletes and Craftsbury Junior Skiers Race to the Top of Vermont

26 Aug 2014 @19:16

2700’ of vertical climbing over a mere 4.3 miles. No matter how you slice it, it makes for a tough day. That’s exactly what racers faced in the 4th Annual Race to the Top of Vermont, a winding uphill course that has runners and bikers start at the bottom of the Toll Road and finish near the top of Mt. Mansfield in Stowe, VT. Finishing the race is definitely an achievement, but the elite runners aren’t just out to finish, they are pushing their limits and attempting to break course records. The Craftsbury crew was well represented in Sunday’s race with GRP skiers, biathletes, rowers, and a few junior skiers toeing the line.

The top Craftsbury finisher in the men’s race was GRP skier Gordon Vermeer. Gordon finished 3rd overall, a little less than 2 minutes behind former cross country ...

Men's lightweight quad makes World Championship Debut

The second day of racing on Monday at the 2014 World Rowing Championships in Amsterdam marked the debut of the US lightweight men's quad in international racing, with Kyle Lafferty representing the GRP alongside many former teammates from Riverside Boat Club. Kyle's last international performance was in the senior men's lightweight pair in Bled, Slovenia in 2011. For teammates Jake Georgeson, Andrew Neils and Peter Schmidt this is their first race abroad. 

The crew had a challenging heat, with last year's world champions the Greeks, perennial powerhouse country Italy and a young but talented crew from the Netherlands. The US was undaunted however, sticking to their race plan and fighting all the way down the course, coming up short in the sprint to finish fourth in 6:09 behind the ...

GRP Biathletes Compete at USBA Rollerski Trials

19 Aug 2014 @13:31

This past weekend marked the first races of US Biathlon rollerski trials in Jericho, VT. The two races, a sprint and a mass start competition, were the first of a four race series which will continue with a second weekend of racing in late October. USBA will use these races to select athletes to their pre-season camp in Sweden in November, and from there they will select IBU and World Cup teams. The field was extremely competitive for the trials races with the best US and Canadian biathletes in attendance. August is early to be racing for a winter start spot, but the biathletes had to be prepared to race fast now in order to be considered for start spots later this season.

Saturday morning’s sprint competition was a successful day for the GRP biathlon squad. Susan Dunklee took the ...

Racing wraps at Canadian Henley

11 Aug 2014 @11:33

And there we have it, after six days of intense racing the Green Racing Project leaves the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta with gold medals in four events: the Senior Women's eight, four, quad and Senior Men's Lightweight pair. While historically known for tailwinds and fast conditions, this week's event had some strong head winds that made for tough racing. The group rose to the challenge though, with some athletes racing over 10 times down the 2k course in nearly every boat class offered, from the single to the eight.

Sunday's racing kicked off with Keziah Beall and Emily Driessigacker taking second in the championship pair to London Olympians Sarah Hendershot and Taylor Ritzel racing for the New York Athletic Club. Craftsbury would strike gold next in the senior women's quad, ...

Saturday Finals at Royal Canadian Henley

9 Aug 2014 @10:11

The racing keeps on heating up in St. Catherine's, starting with the "dash"" races of 500m at 8 AM and going strong until the last final at 6:22 PM. Craftsbury had four women qualify for the afternoon dash finals in the women's single dash, and Sarah Keller won her heat in the lightweight women's single dash to advance as well. Last year's winners in the women's senior quad were back in action, winning their heat on the way to defend their title on Sunday.

The champ singles brought close races, with Hugh McAdam and Erik Frid advancing to Sunday's final along with Maggie Fellows, who won her heat in the women's champ single. Amy Ludovici will also be racing in the final on Sunday for the U23 Women's single after getting second in her heat.

Finals keep on rolling at Canadian Henley

9 Aug 2014 @8:51

Friday's racing brought more finals and the heats for the weekend's racing at the Canadian Henley regatta. While the forecasted conditions have been nearly identical every day this week, the actual weather for racing has been quite different. Afternoon racing had challenging wakes and rolling water from a headwind that lengthened the races and rewarded rowing efficiently as well as hard.

Amy Ludovici and Brett Simpson were the first to race in the U23 women's single heats, with Amy winning her heat and Brett barely missing out on qualifying for the semifinal. Announcers around the course have begun to notice how many races the Craftsbury group are in, especially Amy who "seems to be always on the course!"" 

The next event was the semifinal of the senior women's quad, where there were ...

First day of finals and first medals for GRP at Canadian Henley

8 Aug 2014 @11:45

Thursday was a packed day of racing at St. Catherines, Ontario for the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta. The first day of finals lined up with heats and semifinals for other events, meaning that the Craftsbury athletes would race from 2-4 times, switching from singles to team boats and racing both sweep and sculling along the way.

The women's straight fours kicked off the racing, with Maggie Fellows, Amy Ludovici, Rebecca Donald and Brett Simpson taking second in their heat to advance to Saturday's final; while Keziah Beall, Emily Driessigacker, Jamie Chapman and Elizabeth Sonshine won their heat to join the other GRP boat in the final.

Day Two in St. Catherines for GRP/SBTC at Canadian Henley

6 Aug 2014 @21:40

After the storms of yesterday's racing, Wednesday opened up with plenty of sunshine and good racing all around in Canada for the Craftsbury contingent. The first event on the agenda for the team was the men's lightweight single, with Phil Grisdela qualifying for tomorrow's semifinal and Phil Henson just outside of qualification in fourth place. Sarah Keller was next to the line in the women's lightweight single, taking the third qualifying spot to tomorrow's semifinal as well.

With so much racing it can be hard to keep track of who is doing what event, or even if the lineup is the same, in what boat? Brett Simpson and Amy Ludovici raced both the women's U23 double and pair today, cruising to a comfortable qualification for tomorrow's semifinal in the double and missing out by one place ...

U23 Double Wraps Up at World Championships

27 Jul 2014 @16:59

Racing finished today at the U23 World Championships in Varese, Italy. The men's double of Erik Frid and Walter Banfield, coached by Steve Dani finished second in the C final for 14th place out of 20 total crews entered in the event. The duo put together one of their strongest races in the final, running from fourth place at the 500m mark of the race to holding first place with 500m to go. Unfortunately the crew could not sustain the strong sprint of the Latvians and would take home second place. Overall the US would earn five medals at the championships, including a gold in the women's eight, four and the men's lightweight single, silver in the women's pair and bronze in the men's eight. Full results for the world championships can be found here.

U23 Double to Race in Final on Saturday

25 Jul 2014 @22:06

Erik Frid and Walter Banfield were back in action today at the U23 World Championships in Varese, Italy as they raced in the repechage for a chance to compete in the A/B semifinal. The team again flew off the line near 50 strokes a minute, and found themselves in the middle of a very competitive field. By the halfway mark of the race Erik and Walter had pushed through the Czech Republic to take third, but were unable to catch the Italians for the second place spot to vie for the A/B semi tomorrow. 

There was hardly any time to dwell on that result, as the duo was back to the line a little over five hours later to race in the C/D semifinal. This combination has been learning with every race they complete as they led the semi from wire to wire, taking the fastest time of the two as they ...

Spain won in a time of 6:31, followed by Russia and the US in 6:37. 

Erik and Walter race in the rep at 10:33 AM local time tomorrow, so 4:33 AM here in Craftsbury. They will be racing in a six-boat field with the top two advancing to Saturday's A/B semifinal and the bottom four to a C/D semifinal Friday ...

Bronze Medal for USA and GRP at World Cup III in Lucerne

14 Jul 2014 @17:00

The GRP made history this weekend, with the men’s heavyweight quad taking home bronze medals from the third World Cup in Lucerne, Switzerland. Ben Dann, John Graves, Steve Whelpley and Peter Graves put together a complete regatta, learning from each race before executing their plan when it counted in the final. The crew knew from their performance at the Henley Royal Regatta the week earlier that they could run with the best in the world, but Lucerne provided a real opportunity to test that speed.

Racing began on Friday in the heats, with the top three to advance directly to the A/B semis on Saturday. The GRP quad showed their speed off the line, taking second behind Estonia and ahead of Poland, posting one of the top five fastest times of the day. In the semis on Saturday the quad ...

New Electric Launches at COC

8 Jul 2014 @16:51

Who says it ain’t easy being green? The sculling camp at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center has made a big step towards being more environmentally friendly with a relatively simple change to their fleet of coaching launches. This spring, Craftsbury replaced two gasoline-powered outboard motors with electric outboard motors manufactured by Torqueedo. Not only do these new electric engines provide a multitude of benefits to rowers, coaches and the environment, but they are also proving to be more cost-effective to operate than the old gasoline engines.

One enormous benefit of the electric-powered launch is the drastic reduction in noise produced while in operation. Throughout the summer months, rowers of varying experience travel to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center to receive expert coaching ...

GRP Quad Makes International Debut at Henley Royal Regatta

7 Jul 2014 @14:34

The newly-named US heavyweight men’s quad from Craftsbury made its international debut this weekend at the Henley Royal Regatta in England. With the third World Cup in Lucerne set to start this Friday the 11th, the GRP quad wanted a chance to test their speed overseas. Henley is a storied tradition in the rowing world, having been contested every year since 1839 with the exception of during the two World Wars. The course itself is unique, with side by side racing over 2,112 meters watched by crowds of progressively more formally dressed spectators over enclosures built especially for the event.

GRP Strikes Gold at Holland Beker in Amsterdam

1 Jul 2014 @7:11

Fresh off their qualification for the World Championships later this year, Josh Konieczny and Austin Meyer travelled with the rest of Team USA from the second World Cup in France to the Holland Beker Regatta in Amsterdam. This regatta brings together international competition without a world championship berth on the line, and was also an excellent opportunity to get race experience on the course where the world championships will be held in August.

Josh and Austin raced on Sunday in the men’s open double, where they won their heat by leading from wire to wire to advance to the afternoon’s final. Their road to the top in the final was not quite as clear-cut, with the duo third off the line to some of the more powerful heavyweight combinations. However, both were able to use their ...

GRPRow at Nationals

27 Jun 2014 @12:15

The Craftsbury Green Racing Project came home this weekend from a busy and successful week of racing in Princeton, New Jersey. The group has five new members of the senior national team, a double on the U23 team as well as five national champions and four more medals at the USRowing National Championships. After the Senior/U23 national team trials ended on Wednesday morning it was a quick turnaround to begin the time trials for the USRowing National Championships. Without the pressure of selecting boats for the national team, the GRP was able to enter a slew of different events, with some athletes racing up to seven times in 48 hours!

While looming thunderstorms cancelled the men’s lightweight single and heavyweight double time trial Wednesday evening, four of the Craftsbury ...

Racing has wrapped up for the U23 and Senior World Championships Trials in Princeton New Jersey, and three Craftsbury boats have earned their spot for the World Championships this year, joining Josh Konieczny and Austin Meyer in the men’s lightweight double.

The GRP was first to the line in the men’s heavyweight quad, the only Olympic-class event to be contested at these senior team trials.

GRP/CBC LM2x: 4th at World Cup II

23 Jun 2014 @7:41

While the GRP preps to race on the home front this week, the second World Cup in Aiguebelette, France was decided this weekend. Green team member Josh Konieczny was racing in the men’s lightweight double after winning the event at the second National Selection Regatta in May with Austin Meyer of Cambridge Boat Club. The duo was competing in France to try and qualify for the World Championships in Amsterdam with a sixth-place or better finish in a tough field of 30 lightweight doubles. Josh and Austin accomplished that mission on Saturday, finishing in the top three of their semi to earn a berth in the A final.

However, with their ticket for Amsterdam settled the combination was still not done, finishing fourth in Sunday’s A final for one of the best US results ever in the event. There ...

The GRP traveled back to New Jersey this past weekend to compete at the second of two National Selection Regattas to pick World Cup team for the US this summer. Craftsbury brought a full flight of men’s and women’s heavyweight and lightweight doubles, as well as an entry in the men’s open pair.

Ben Dann and John Graves were back in the double that they raced at the World Championships in 2013, racing teammates Stephen Welpley and Peter Graves in the men’s heavyweight double. John and Ben would win the time trial ahead of a entry from Potomac Boat Club, but both doubles would win their semifinals to set the stage for a showdown in the A final. While Steve and Peter lead the field to the 1000m mark, Peter and Ben would power through to take the win ahead of Willy Cowles and Sam Stitt ...

GRP Rowing: Clemson and SDCC

11 Apr 2014 @7:40

While the Outdoor Center is still blanketed with snow, the Green Racing Project rowers have been enjoying the sunshine and miles of (liquid) water in Clemson, SC. The team has been down in Clemson since the beginning of March to get ready for the first National Selection Regatta in New Jersey April 23rd to 26th. This past weekend the GRP had a great chance to race, whether at the Clemson Sprints put on by the University’s club program or further afield at the San Diego Crew Classic. Getting race experience can make a huge difference for the team in New Jersey looking to qualify for the men’s or women’s single at the World Cups or the men’s lightweight four selection camp.

First to the water at the Clemson Sprints was the men’s open single, run in two flights without a final to ...

Latest news (9 April 14):
Keith is out exploring the state of the Black as I type, and he's passed along some information regarding Sunday's courses, rules, and other miscellany.

Ironmen bibs:  No bibs will be put on your boats or bikes - the bib you'll be wearing on your person is adequate.

Pretty much the same courses as last year (links take you to '13 maps).
Ski Course:  3 laps of 3.3k, relatively flat
Run Course:  Flat to downhill, 4.3miles w/mud, snow and ice
Paddle Leg:  Twisty river, w/lots of snags, same put in/take out as last year. Given the current, we may skip the down and back part of the leg if water is high and fast moving.
Bike Leg:  Same as last year. Climbs out of the start, then subtle downhill to the village. Slight climbing coming back to the Center.

GRP caps a successful season at SuperTour finals in Anchorage, AK

2 Apr 2014 @16:05

Winter may still be in full force in the Northeast Kingdom, but the GRP skiers have finished their season up with a jam-packed week of racing in Alaska for SuperTour Finals. Eight GRP skiers, four men and four women made the trip, where they were greeted by perfect snow and bluebird skies. Up until the week before the competitions Alaska was low on snow, but a storm brought in two feet of new snow and excellent conditions at the two race venues, Kincaid Park and Hillside.

The first race on Saturday the 22nd of March was a 10k/15k skate individual start. With a skiff of powder over a layer of hard ice, conditions were fast but the courses anything but easy. Top GRP finishers were Andrew Dougherty in 15th in the men’s race, Caitlin Patterson and Ida Sargent in 10th and 13th in the ...

GRP Biathletes Compete at National Championships in Jericho, Vermont

26 Mar 2014 @19:21

While the biathlon World Cup was finishing up overseas last weekend, the domestic biathlon scene was also having end of season races in nearby Jericho, VT. GRP athletes Clare Egan, Ethan Dreissigacker, and Mike Gibson made the trip to compete in three National Championship races the weekend of March 14-16th. The fields were small but competitive, with the best US biathletes from Maine Winter Sports Club, Mt. Itasca in Minnesota, and clubs as far away as California and Alaska. Jericho also hosted North American roller ski championships this fall, but the scene was a bit different this time around with temperatures hovering in the single digits!

Dunklee and Dreissigacker cap a successful World Cup season in Oslo, Norway

23 Mar 2014 @23:58

For fans of GRP biathlete Susan Dunklee it was worth the wait to see her notch her first ever World Cup podium this weekend in Oslo, Norway in the final World Cup sprint of the season. But it was just one great result in a string of strong performances put forth by her and her US biathlon teammates this season. Susan and fellow GRP biathlete Hannah Dreissigacker have both had personal best results this year in World Cup and Olympic competition, with Susan taking a string of top ten’s and Hannah breaking into the points on several occasions. This weekend’s competitions in Oslo were a chance for them to finish the season with a bang, and a chance for Susan to achieve a new personal best.

Susan has had some of her best results in sprint races, and a 4th in Antholz earlier this year showed ...

Susan Dunklee is on fire with first World Cup podium in Oslo, Norway

20 Mar 2014 @18:01

Susan Dunklee has been knocking on the door of a World Cup podium for a while, and today in Oslo she finally got her answer! She's been strong in several World Cup sprints this season, 4th in Antholz, and 8th in Kontiolahti last weekend. This morning in Oslo she cleaned both shooting stages and skied the 14th fastest time, good enough for 3rd place and her first ever World Cup podium. 

Congrats Susan on a huge breakthrough performance; we can't wait to see how she does in the pursuit on Saturday where she will start in 3rd. 

Stay tuned for a full race report from the last weekend of the Biathlon World Cup!

Sargent wraps up World Cup Season at Finals in Falun, Sweden

19 Mar 2014 @19:00

Falun will play host to the 2015 World Championships for cross country skiing, but for now, they hosted the 2014 World Cup Finals as a sort of “test run” for their new courses and improved venue. Last year many of the athletes protested courses which included dangerous downhill sections, but the races on the new courses went smoothly. The final weekend included a classic sprint on Friday, a 15k/30k skiathlon Saturday, and a 10k/15k skate pursuit on Sunday that was based off the times from the previous two days.

GRP skier Ida Sargent was eager to show her stuff in the World Cup final after just barely squeaking into the top 50 necessary to qualify. The first day was a classic sprint, her specialty. She qualified in 24th, along with 3 other US women: Sadie Bjornsen in 5th, Sophie ...

Dunklee and Dreissigacker successful at penultimate World Cup stop in Kontiolahti, Finland

18 Mar 2014 @19:39

It has been a long season for GRP biathletes Susan Dunklee and Hannah Dreissigacker, but they don’t seem to show any signs of tiring! They competed last weekend in the World Cup in Kontiolahti, Finland and both posted strong results in the two sprint races and one pursuit race. Kontiolahti didn’t have quite the swirling winds of Pokljuka last weekend, but it certainly wasn’t easy shooting. Neither was the ski course, which included some massive climbs that sapped the leg strength of even the best skaters. 

The race on Thursday the 13th was the first of two 7.5k sprints. Once again, Susan was well within the top ten after the first prone shoot where she missed one target. She was also skiing incredibly fast, with some of the fastest splits of the day. When she came in to shoot standing, ...

GRP Spring Tour FINAL RESULTS

17 Mar 2014 @21:32

The third and final stage of the GRP Spring Tour went off Sunday in decidedly un-spring-like conditions. With overall Tour podium spots up for grabs in both the men's and women's races, racers wasted no time in making moves to catch one another in the Handicap Start race.

On the men's side of things, Scott Patterson posted the fastest time-on-day to retain his #1 Tour ranking. Drama ensued for the remaining podium spots, with #2 starter Eric Packer barely holding onto his spot over #17 Rogan Brown and #13 Patrick Caldwell, who also took top Junior honors.

For the women, Caitlin Patterson also extended her Tour lead to secure the overall and TOD victories, besting former UVM teammate Anja Gruber, who had the 2nd-fastest TOD to keep her #2 Tour ranking. UVMer Stephanie Kirk claimed the ...

Anders Hanson represents Craftsbury Nordic at Junior Nationals in Stowe

15 Mar 2014 @23:23

There was a lot of action just down the road in Stowe last week for Junior Nationals. JN’s are the culmination of the season for many junior skiers, and for some, the first time all season they will get the chance to race against skiers from all over the country: Alaska, the West Coast, the Rocky Mountains, the Midwest, you name it, they’ll be there! Just in case you missed out on the jam-packed week of racing, here’s our recap of the races. For Craftsbury Nordic, Anders Hanson represented the team in the U16 boy’s category. Anders qualified 5th for U16’s in the New England division, but NE is known to do very well at Junior Nationals especially in the younger age categories, so he was ready for some competitive finishes.
