This weekend's Nordic races featured a continuous-pursuit style event, or "duathlon" event, in which athletes skied a lap of a 3km course in the classic diagonal stride technique, then skied a 3.5km loop using the skate style, including an equipment switch in the middle, on the clock! Combined times of the classic + switch + skate were used for the final standings of the event! The course at Snow Mountain Ranch, in Granby, CO was surprisingly cold in the early morning. As things warmed we were ready for potentially tricky waxing conditions, but the rain/snow held off until after the races. The course was firm windblown snow over some older snow, and stayed relatively consistent through the day. Though the start/finish area was moved well out away from the buildings and parking, the trails were in good condition and held up well. With what was available, the crew over there put on a great, fun event for all!
Evelinaagain lead the team with a 3rd place, for her second podium finish of the year. Other notable accomplishments including Jessica notably improving her placing from the last high school race (this is her second nordic race, ever!) and more people qualifying for the state meet. Lina, Jacqueline & Heidi all qualified for the classic races at the state meet by finishing in the top 45% of the field. Robert skied by far his best placing of the season, at one point challenging for a top-20 finish! In the process, he also qualified for both skate and classic events at the state meet!

Fall Training Camp in Aspen with the rest of the RMD Division! Perfect fall weather, and great to have others to train with! Also a good check-in for athletes from around the region to catch up with each other, and motivate for the last block of training!
