I just found out about the news that the FIS has confirmed Fairbanks, Alaska as a World Cup venue for the upcoming 2009/2010 competition season. As of yet, the exact dates and race disciplines have not been finalized, but the races will be held at Birch Hill and hosted by the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks.
I am so excited now! The thought of having the best in the world racing on the same trails we train on every day, and getting to watch it firsthand has me hoping the summer goes by fast! Should be awesome, and I can imagine that things will start getting busy around here when fall time rolls around.
