Hoefler, Hanneman Off To Championship Racing

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Erich skating strong in the final Besh Cup race of the season in Fairbanks.

With two wins and two other top three finishes in Alaska’s Besh Cup Junior Olympic Qualfying Series, FAST’s Erich Hoefler was the overall Besh Cup Points winner for J1 skiers in Alaska. Hoefler will ski for Team Alaska at next month’s Junior Nationals in Soldier Hollow, UT.

Meanwhile, Logan Hanneman, who now skis for the UAF Nanooks for most of the year but also for FAST on Besh Cup weekends, pre-qualified at US Senior Nationals in January. Before Junior Nationals however, Hanneman earned a spot on the World Junior Championships in Ezurum, Turkey. Championship racing in Turkey, how cool is that?

Congrats Guys!

The team was lean and mean this year, with just a handful of skiers donning the maroon and white.
