As some of you rabid Fasterskier readers already know, today was the first real distance race of the season. Although advertised as a 15k, it had to have been more like 12 or 13; although he’s fast, there’s no way Leif was skiing 2 minutes a kilometer to win this first SuperTour Distance race in 32 minutes.
That’s basically the most accurate description of today’s race for the FAST boys. David was the top Junior male by a long-shot for the second race in a row, a feat which continues to garner absolutely zero attention on this website for some reason. Besides that, there weren’t a whole lot of highlights. Actually, Werner probably had the best race of any of us. He rallied his way into the top 10 Juniors overall, which is pretty impressive, considering the field is pretty stacked and we are racing at altitude.
More importantly, the results to the quiz posted two days ago will now be revealed. I know you have all been holding your breath until this moment, but it has finally arrived. We’ve just been told that FXC coach Peter Leonard has generously volunteered to donate a week’s worth of free technique lessons to the winner, which incidentally happens to be David’s older sister Mishelle.
The winning, and correct answers are:
A = Werner B = Tyson C = Reese D = David
Other than the race, there were a few other highlights from the day:
