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. Racing begins for some boat classes on Wednesday after “The Draw,” setting up the single elimination bracket of head to head races has been established.

Ben Dann, John Graves, Steve Whelpley and ...

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 ...

4 Boats to Worlds! U23/Sr World Trials Results

26 Jun 2014 @10:38

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. The lineup of Ben Dann, John Graves, Steve Whelpley and Peter Graves has decades of rowing experience between them, as well as numerous international and even Olympic performances. John and Ben raced last year as the men’s heavyweight double for the US along with Steve Whelpley in the men’s heavyweight single. Peter Graves has had several international appearances in the men’s double as well as ...

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 ...

As summer kicks into full swing, so do the GRP rowers who are racing around the world this weekend and next week. Parts of the squad have travelled away from the center to pursue the world championships in their own strongest boat classes, but nearly all of the group will meet up in New Jersey next week for the Senior and U23 World Championship trials as well as the USRowing National Championships.

First on the agenda though is the second World Cup in Aiguebelette, France.

The single track mountain bike trails are open as well as select ski trails (albeit w/some sloppy sections), but are not yet completely marked, so should only be used by riders familiar with the area.

NSRII - 2 More GRP boats selected for World Cups

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 ...

Spring racing began this past weekend for the rowing contingent of the Craftsbury Green Racing Project at the first National Selection Regatta in New Jersey. This race marks the start of the 2014 campaign for the World Championships in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. One more year into the Olympic cycle means that the level of competition continues to rise as new talent arrives to test their speed against Olympians and national team members of previous years. Over 120 boats were entered in the regatta, each one filled with national team or Olympic hopefuls. The GRP was ready to race at Mercer after a six-week training camp at Clemson University where the group was able to enjoy miles of water and warm temperatures as well as two buoyed 2000-meter race courses.

Dunklee and Dreissigacker’s nominations to the National “A Team” come as no surprise; they were both National Team members last year and represented the US at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. Dunklee had a fantastic season, starting with her 4th place finish in Antholz, Italy in early January, and culminating with her first World Cup podium in the final weekend of racing in Oslo, Norway.

Miller grew up in Elmore, Vermont, racing for Craftsbury in high school, and was a five-time member of New England’s Junior National Team. In 2010 she won a junior national title in the OJ (now U20) classic sprint and 10K classic. She attended Bowdoin for her college career, where she raced for the Polar Bears, qualifying for NCAAs in 2013 and 2014. Kaitlynn was a biology and environmental studies major and a visual art minor. She looks forward to applying her ecological background to projects at the Center and helping coach Bill Koch and junior skiers.

As in years past, we were faced ...

2014 Dryland: camps and programming

21 Apr 2014 @9:32

So, you're winding down your skiing for the year (we're on day 152 of skiing here at Craftsbury...) and are wondering how to keep this fitness going, maybe even grow it in advance of next winter. Without a glacier, what is a New England skier to do?

How about checking out some of the dryland offerings at Craftsbury? There's an adage in skiing: Skiers are made in the summer." In addition to our sculling and running camps (both great training options), we offer annual members dryland training during the warm months, as well as a camp for BKL kids (and a JR version to come!). Some basic information -

2014 Summer Dryland Programming
We have programs for most everyone that meet from 2-4 times per week. Programs are generally organized by age (e.g. U14/16 = for 12-15 year olds), but final ...

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.

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 ...

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.

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

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, ...

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 ...

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.

Dunklee and Dreissigacker back to Biathlon World Cup circuit after Olympics

11 Mar 2014 @12:24

Don’t worry, biathlon fans, the racing didn’t end after two weeks of exciting action at the Sochi Olympics. Biathlon is back! GRP biathletes Susan Dunklee and Hannah Dreissigacker raced last weekend in Pokljuka, Slovenia. Unlike Sochi, where the wind was calm and the shooting range well protected from the elements, Slovenia presented a challenge on the range. For all of the races the wind whipped around, fluttering the range flags and frustrating many competitors. Then, just as suddenly, the wind would stop and previous sight corrections the biathletes made to their rifles proved a hindrance.

On Thursday the 6th, Susan and Hannah raced a 7.5k sprint. The day would ultimately go to the sharp shooters, and after her first prone stage, Susan looked to be among them. She cleaned her first ...

GRP's Sargent takes on the Holmenkollen in Oslo, Norway

11 Mar 2014 @11:51

The Holmenkollen, this past weekend’s World Cup stop in Oslo, Norway, may be the Norwegian equivalent of the Super Bowl. Fans camp out the night before the races, and in the morning there are throngs of people, all celebrating, drinking, and cheering loudly for skiers of every country. This year, the men and women raced a 50k and a 30k classic, respectively (the technique changes every year). With Norway being granted extra start spots for its Nation’s Cup skiers, there was a sea of red out on the trails. Among them were 8 American women shooting for top results and a berth into World Cup Finals the following weekend.

Ida was able to take 42nd in the women’s 30k, and with that result, she held onto her top 50 ranking on the overall World Cup standings. This means that she will be able ...

Sargent races Drammen classic city sprint, Randall secures 3rd Crystal Globe

7 Mar 2014 @8:09

City sprints are always exciting, bringing the drama and upsets of World Cup sprinting to the streets. The classic sprint in Drammen, Norway on Wednesday was no exception. A windy, mostly flat course that ends at the top of an absurdly steep climb, Drammen is always thrilling for the spectators. In the men’s field there is an interesting interplay between the skiers who choose to double pole the entire classic course on skate skis and those who choose to use kick-wax. This made for some spectacular comebacks on the final climb, when the double-polers, tired and full of lactic acid, had to push through while the striders came on strong. The women all used classic skis, however there were still some great comebacks and almost all of the heats were close.

The US only qualified two women ...

Sargent races post-Olympic World Cup in Lahti, Finland

6 Mar 2014 @7:11

The Olympics may be over, but the racing on the cross country World Cup is just heating up. The World Cup field flew from Sochi to Scandinavia, where they will finish out their race season in Finland, Sweden, and Norway. This past weekend saw double skate races in Lahti, Finland; a skate sprint on Saturday and a 10k skate on Sunday. Some were out for redemption after disappointing Olympic races, while others were looking to defend overall or sprint titles.

The GRP’s Ida Sargent qualified for the sprint heats at the Olympics just over two weeks ago, but in Lahti the competition for heats was fierce and Ida ended up on the outside of qualifying in 44th. However, she was less than 2 seconds out of 30th place and many strong World Cup sprinters found themselves out of qualifying as well. ...

GRP Skiers (and Rowers!) take on the American Birkiebeiner

26 Feb 2014 @15:32

The biggest ski race in North America, and an annual tradition for over 10,000 skiers from the Midwest and beyond, the American Birkiebeiner is one race that has to be seen to be believed. 6 of the GRP skiers and 3 rowers traveled to Hayward, Wisconsin to brave the 50k course this past Saturday, the 22nd. 

The Birkie organizers love having the Elite skiers present, and to raise hype for the big marathon event they hosted Elite Sprints on Main St. in Hayward the Thursday before the Birkie. The format was simple, racers lined up in heats of two to compete in a single elimination drag race, down the street, around a set of pylons, and back up to the finish. Whoever won their heat moved on to the next, and so on until a winner emerged. Gordon and Liz both got knocked out in the first round ...

GRP Biathletes Wrap up Sochi Appearance with Season Best in Women's Relay

25 Feb 2014 @14:12

Friday’s biathlon relay was the last race in Sochi for Susan Dunklee and Hannah Dreissigacker, the two biathletes representing the GRP at the Olympics Games. They had an impressive run of results over the previous two weeks, with Hannah notching a personal best and Susan making history with several best ever results for the American team. Their mixed relay along with Tim Burke and Lowell Bailey was a bit disappointing, not because of the final result, 8th, but because they were in contact with the leaders following Susan’s scramble leg.

The US women have stepped it up in biathlon relays this year, taking 8th place in both relays they contested in the regular World Cup circuit. In Friday’s relay, they used the same order with Susan scrambling. She came through for the tag once again in ...

Championship Season for Craftsbury

24 Feb 2014 @16:48

The sun's rising higher in the sky, days are getting longer...that means it's time for XC Ski Championships! The past several weeks have seen several series wrapup, qualifier races, and even some of the year-end MAIN EVENTS! Let's catch up:

J2/EHS Qualifiers
Did you look at the results of the Craftsbury SuperTour several weekends ago and wonder where all the juniors were? The answer:  they were all at the lovely Rickert Nordic Center, fighting for a slot on Vermont's J2 and/or Eastern High School teams. The qualifier is comprised of two races:  a 3.5k classic race in the morning, and a 3.5k skate race in the afternoon, with combined times determining the year's team for J2 and Eastern High School Championships. Craftsbury was well represented by a sprinter full of youngsters.

Susan makes history in 12.5k Mass Start, Craftsbury ladies contest first mixed relay

20 Feb 2014 @18:55

Before she even started the 12.5k mass start race in Sochi on Monday, Susan Dunklee had already made history as the first American woman to qualify for the 30 woman race at the Olympics. However, she wasn’t content to just show up, she wanted to contend for the medals. In the first lap she was with the leaders and shot clean, and stayed with them through the second lap. However, in order to stay in contention in the mass start, she needed to be perfect in all of her shooting stages, and she wasn’t quite there. A miss in the second stage put her out of the top ten, and although she missed 1 in each of the following two stages, she skied her heart out to sprint for 12th place and make history a second time. 12th place in the best an American woman has ever placed in an Olympic event in ...

GRP continues season at Battle Creek SuperTour in St. Paul, MN

19 Feb 2014 @19:11

The domestic crew of GRP racers was busy this past weekend at the SuperTour races in St. Paul, Minnesota. Five men and one woman represented the GRP in a classic 10k/15k mass start on Saturday and 5k/10k skate individual on Sunday. With many athletes in the US contesting college races and other regional races, the field was small but competitive, packed with most of the top names on the domestic circuit.

In the classic 10k, GRP skier Caitlin Patterson continued a run of top 6 performances in the SuperTours with a 5th place. She was just 12 seconds behind race winner Rosie Brennan of APU. The men’s 15k saw some new faces on the podium, with Matt Gelso of Sun Valley taking his first SuperTour victory of the season and SMS-T2 post-grad skier Ben Saxton taking second just a few days after ...

Sargent 34th in Olympic 10k Classic

16 Feb 2014 @15:03

Some people described the weather for Thursday’s 10k individual in Sochi as “tropical”. With temperatures soaring into the 50’s and no overnight freeze to solidify the tracks, it was a hot, messy day on the trails. Just two days after Sophie Caldwell’s historic 6th place in the skate sprint, the US women had their work cut out for them on a challenging and extremely soft course. The organizers tried to harden things up by salting sections of the course, which helped on some sections but contributed to variable conditions overall. Most racers wouldn’t even consider taking a feed in such a short race, but all of the US women took feeds to avoid dehydration in the hot sun.

Ida Sargent raced to a very solid 34th place, about 3 minutes off the pace of the race leader Justyna Kowalczyk. She ...

Dreissigacker redeems herself in 15k Individual, Dunklee 34th

15 Feb 2014 @12:03

Hannah Dreissigacker had nothing to lose in Friday’s 15k individual after finishing 64th in the sprint race earlier in the Games and missing qualification for the pursuit race. With the pressure off, Hannah was able to turn in her best performance ever in a World Cup, World Championships, or Olympics in 23rd. Hannah has shot well in relays this year but so far hasn’t been able to put her shooting together in an individual race. But in the 15k, where each miss adds 1 minute to a competitor’s final time, Hannah’s shooting was nearly flawless. She missed one in her first prone stage, but then cleaned the next two stages before missing one in her final standing. For comparison, the winner of the day, Darya Domracheva of Belarus had one miss. No skier with more than 3 misses was able to ...

Dunklee strives for the medals in first Olympic appearances

13 Feb 2014 @12:02

Susan Dunklee’s results from the first two Olympic biathlon races, 14th in the sprint and 18th in the pursuit, fail to tell the whole story of her Olympic debut. The funny thing about biathlon is that the race can change in a matter of seconds, and that was certainly the case in both of Susan’s races. What the results don’t tell is that in both races Susan was in contention for a top result, and if everything went perfectly, an Olympic medal. So while she may have missed out in these races, she has the confidence going into the remaining races that she can compete with the best in the world.

Sunday’s 7.5k sprint was the first women’s biathlon competition of the Olympics, and the finishing margins were extremely close. Susan cleaned her first prone stage and was in the mix in the ski. ...

Sargent strong in Olympic debut

11 Feb 2014 @18:16

Just a little over one week ago, Ida Sargent missed making the rounds in the Toblach World Cup, the last opportunity to practice heats before the big show in Sochi. She ended up 33rd, heartbreakingly close to a quarterfinal berth. That is the nature of World Cup sprinting, that one day everything goes according to plan, and another day leaves you looking for more.  

But Ida must have been saving it up for when it really counted, because she had no trouble qualifying in the freestyle sprint today in Sochi. She was 26th in qualification, one of four Americans to make it to the rounds. Fellow Vermonter Sophie Caldwell was 9th in qualification, Jessie Diggins was 12th, and Kikkan Randall 18th. Ida had a tough quarterfinal heat with eventual silver medalist Ingvild Oestberg. Unfortunately ...

Winter Tri #2: Skating edition

27 Jan 2014 @18:52

This past Sunday saw another episode of Keith's multisport madness at Craftsbury, with the first-ever skate triathlon! After weeks of oval maintenance and zamboni R&D, Keith's circle was put to the test by 10 triathletes in a skate, run, ski event.

The winner was GRP Rower Kyle Lafferty, who bested course designer Keith Woodward by just under 2 minutes, primarily on the strength of his run leg. Maggie Fellows was fourth overall, and the first woman across the line. The rower's cross training seems to be going well this winter! Full results.

GRP Biathletes Compete in Quebec, Canada

25 Jan 2014 @12:40

Three of the GRP biathletes ventured north to Val Cartier in Quebec to compete in NorAm #4 as a tune-up race for the North American Championships in Jericho this weekend. Clare Egan, Mike Gibson, and Ethan Dreissigacker competed in a sprint race (7.5k/10k) on the 18th and a pursuit race (10k/12.5k) on the 19th which was seeded from the previous day’s result.

Clare was the only woman to finish the 7.5k sprint, so congrats to her for taking the victory! She had two misses in prone and two in standing. Even without major competition, it was still good for her to put on a bib and practice shooting in a race situation. Mike and Ethan took second and third in the race behind Canadian biathlete Vincent Blais. Mike had 5 misses and Ethan had four, although Ethan cleaned his standing stage.

Antholz Biathlon World Cup Day Two and (Almost!) Three

Starting in fourth position in the pursuit race in Antholz must have been an intimidating prospect for Susan Dunklee, after her career best finish in the sprint race two days prior. But Susan didn’t let the pressure get to her and skied with the lead pack for 3 laps, switching off with eventual winner Andrea Henkel of Germany. She cleaned the first stage and only missed one on the second stage, putting her in a great position coming into the final two shooting stages. However, 3 misses on the third stage put her in the penalty loop and she had to watch the leaders ski away. She ended the day in 24th place after 1 miss in her final stage. It was a strong result, although frustrating considering her great start position. The takeaway for Susan from the pursuit must be that she is ...

Sargent breaks through in distance race in Szklarska Poreba, Poland

21 Jan 2014 @17:33

Ida Sargent may be known for her sprinting abilities, but that didn’t prevent her from throwing down a top ten in a 10k classic race this weekend in Poland, demonstrating that she has the fitness to compete with the world’s best. Szklarska Poreba hosted a freestyle sprint and a distance mass start classic in the penultimate World Cup stop before the Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Although the Norwegians, Swedes, and Finns were all absent, attending their national championships, it was still a strong, albeit smaller, field. Polish favorite and national darling Justyna kowalczyk was present, and collected a victory in the 10k classic to the cheers of her home crowd.

Friday’s freestyle sprint was a chance for the US women to show their depth in sprinting and they put on an impressive show, ...

BKL Duathlon Results

21 Jan 2014 @9:21

On Martin Luther King Jr. Monday, Bill Koch League skiers flocked to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center for the Mansfield Nordic Club duathlon. Almost 70 kids in grades 1-8 competed in the races, which ranged in distance from 1.5k for the youngest skiers to 4k for the oldest. Duathlons are double the excitement, with a required change-of-equipment in the middle of the race as skiers switch from classic to skate skiing.

Representing Craftsbury Nordic with flying colors, Allen Moody won the grade 1-2 boys 1.5k race by over two minutes-- a massive margin for a race that only took him four and a half minutes. Allen also competed with the grade 3-4 boys and came in third, about 50 seconds behind his buddy and teammate, Cormac Leahy, who took first place. Cormac's sister Anika Leahy zipped around ...

Juniors & GRP at Eastern Cup

20 Jan 2014 @17:32

With a growing number of up-and-coming Craftsbury juniors joining the Green Racing Project on the Eastern Cup circuit, the bright green race suits are increasingly ubiquitous. Six girls and ten boys represented Craftsbury at last weekend's NENSA Eastern Cup races at Black Mountain in Rumford, Maine.

The GRP had its first podium sweep of the season in the men's 10k classic interval start, with Patrick O'Brien leading Gordon Vermeer and Jake Barton. Alex Schulz and Alex Howe both improved upon their Saturday results, taking 6th and 12th. Xavier Koontz Miller and Patrick Lawlor once again held their own again, finishing 84th and 92nd.

In the U-16 boys' 5k, Anders Hanson repeated as Craftsbury's top finisher, this time just missing out on the podium in 4th place. Matthew Lawlor was 16th and ...

Career Best for Susan at Antholz

15 Jan 2014 @21:41

Watch out Sochi, GRP biathlete Susan Dunklee appears to be hitting her peak, and just at the right time with a 4th place finish in a World Cup sprint in Antholz, Italy. This is a career best finish for Susan, who last finished in the top 5 in an individual race at the World Championships in Rupholding, Germany two years ago.

In Antholz, Susan cleaned for the first time in a World Cup and also had a blazing fast ski time. When she crossed the line she was in first place, but she still had to wait for the rest of the field to finish. For a while it looked like Susan might hold on to a podium spot in 3rd place, but Belarusian Darya Domracheva just beat out Susan by 0.60s. Susan was also only 4s out of 2nd and 10.7s from the victory. 

Hannah Dreissigacker had a bit of an unlucky day. She ...

Sargent sprints it out in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic

14 Jan 2014 @14:36

It was another double sprint weekend World Cup in Nove Mesto in the Czech Republic and the US team contested an individual freestyle sprint on Saturday and a classic team sprint Sunday. With no snow anywhere to be seen in Eastern Europe, Nove Mesto is lucky to have a 2k man-made loop where they could hold the races. GRP skier Ida Sargent competed in both races after a holiday training break in Davos, Switzerland.


Saturday’s freestyle sprint was a strong day for the US women, with Kikkan Randall taking the victory and Sophie Caldwell in 15th. Unfortunately Ida didn’t make the sprint rounds, finishing 50th, but after a sustained break from racing, she most likely just needs to get her sprint legs back under her. The US men also had a solid day with Andy Newell qualifying in 2nd. He and ...

Dunklee continues consistent run at Rupholding World Cups

14 Jan 2014 @13:04

GRP biathlete Susan Dunklee is already pre-qualified for the upcoming Olympics in Sochi, Russia, which means that every World Cup up until the games begin is a sort of practice run for the competitions that will really count. So far, Susan has had a remarkably consistent season on the World Cup and she continued to have strong results in this weekend’s races in Rupholding, Germany. Although conditions were icy, they were much better than last weekend’s conditions in Oberhof, Germany, where low snow threatened to cancel the races. The first day of the Rupholding World Cups was a relay, which unfortunately the US women did not contest as Susan and Annelies Cook were the only women racing.


In Friday’s 15k individual start Susan placed 41st, with 1 miss in prone and 2 in standing over the ...

Two GRP Biathletes named to Sochi Olympic Team

13 Jan 2014 @17:22

Following a week of strong showings on the IBU Cup circuit Hannah Dreissigacker was named to the 2014 US Biathlon Olympic Team, joining GRP teammate Susan Dunklee (pre-qualified on the basis of 2012-13 World Cup results). Dreissigacker came through time after time in the four races from Riduan, Italy - the quartet of races providing the basis for the final Olympic selection. Two spots were sure to go to the best finishers from the four Americans competing in Riduan, with a possible third spot available on the basis of the strong showing of US athletes in biathlon recently.

Dreissigacker led the American women in the 7.5k Sprint event last Saturday, the 5th, with a 15th place on only 1 miss. She followed that the next day with a 13th place, second American by 14 seconds to Sara ...

2nd Edition of GRP Skiers at US Nationals- Report from Day Three and Four

13 Jan 2014 @13:53

We’re back with the second installment of our report from the GRP skiers at US Cross Country Championships. The second part of the championships had some weather challenges, some hard-fought races, and a little redemption as well! Keep reading for a full report on the 20k/30k mass start freestyle and the classic sprint on January 8th and 10th.

20k/30k Mass Start Freestyle

The mass start freestyle proved to be one of the most challenging days of Nationals, with the men skiing 6 laps of the Olympic 5k course and the women skiing 4. The GRP men still hadn’t found their stride for the mass start, and Pat O’Brien posted the best result in 36th place, followed by Andrew Dougherty in 62nd, Gordon Vermeer in 64th and Jake Barton in 68th. The women toughed it out in a race that saw Caitlin Gregg ...

Biathletes Dreissigacker and Dunklee back in Europe after Holiday Break

7 Jan 2014 @18:28

After a short break directly after the World Cups in Annecy, both Susan Dunklee and Hannah Dreissigacker are back in Europe competing in the last few World Cup and IBU Cups before the Olympics. Susan was in Oberhof, Germany this past weekend for the World Cup there, and Hannah competed in the IBU Cup in Ridnaun, Italy, which will be used for Olympic selection.

Susan raced a 7.5k sprint and a 10k pursuit in Oberhof. She was the top American woman in both races and had two really consistent races. In Friday’s sprint race she finished 32nd with 4 misses, 2 in prone and 2 in standing. Unfortunately she just missed qualifying for Sunday’s mass start, as only the top 30 get a start position. However, she was able to move up to 25th place in Saturday’s pursuit race and cleaned the first two ...

GRP Biathletes Compete at IBU Cup Trials in Mt. Itasca, Minnesota

7 Jan 2014 @17:18

It has been a few weeks since the GRP biathletes returned from their December trials races in Mt. Itasca, MN, but in light of some great performances from the crew, we decided that they needed some belated news coverage. The trials were a four race series with three sprint (7.5k/10k) competitions and one mass start. One woman and two men were selected from the trials to compete at an IBU Cup in Ridnaun, Italy, in hopes of making the Olympic team. GRP biathlete Clare Egan had some great results at trials and just narrowly missed the IBU Cup selection. Here’s the rundown of the week’s races.

Saturday, December 14th- 10k/7.5k Sprint 

It was freezing cold in Mt. Itasca for the first sprint competition, but the organizers managed to pull off a sprint competition, 10k for the men and 7.5k for ...

Craftsbury Inn to become Craftsbury Public House

27 Dec 2013 @14:11

Thanks to collaboration between the owners of the Craftsbury Inn, the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, and the Preservation Trust of Vermont, the Craftsbury Inn (in Craftsbury Village) will soon be restored and will take on a new life as the Craftsbury Public House. It will offer community gathering space, exhibition/performance space, accommodations and a Pub. The grounds will become a community park, and it will serve as a village trailhead for the ski trails between Highland Lodge and the Outdoor Center.

The Craftsbury Public House was built by Amasa Scott, a successful merchant, as his private residence. An advocate for Craftsbury Village, in the 1850’s Amasa built the prominent building, and donated land and lent funds to build the town hall in the village to bolster its standing as ...

Sargent breaks through with 10th in Asiago, Italy

23 Dec 2013 @22:56

A double classic sprint weekend? Sounds like a dream come true for Ida Sargent, a classic sprint specialist (who also holds her own in distance and skate sprints!). But this past World Cup weekend in Asiago, Italy offered an individual classic sprint and a team sprint, and Ida made the most of it with some strong results.

Saturday was the individual sprint, and Ida started the day with a 21st in qualification. She was one of four US women to make the heats, with Sadie Bjornsen qualifying in 5th, Vermonter Sophie Caldwell in 25th, and Kikkan Randall in 27th. However, Ida was the only US Woman to advance out of her quarterfinal. She was third in that race, which was enough to earn her a lucky loser spot and a semifinal start. In her semi, Ida matched up against eventual winner Justyna ...
