Sylvan Ellefson (SSCV Team Homegrown) and Lauren Fritz (APU) skied to victory in the 30km Boulder Mountain Tour in Sun Valley, Idaho.
Ellefson won a closely contested race, finishing at the front of a tight pack of 12 skiers, all within just 3 seconds. Sixth place was only a second off the win in an event that usually features a sprint to the line due to the 1000 feet of elevation drop in the course.
Mark Iverson (APU) was second, just half a second behind Ellefson.
The race for third was even tighter with Peter Kling edging out hometown favorite Mike Sinnott with a lunge. The official time difference between the two was just six hundreths of a second.
The women’s race was just as close at the front. Fritz out-lunged Corrine Malcolm and Brooke Hovey for the win and Alex Turzian was just a second back in 4th.
