Men's 20 k Mass start Classic Bozeman

The men skied their final race of the regular season today, which was in fact the final college career race for two of them!! It was a 20 k mass start classic race, and it missed no elements in terms of toughness. But our boys outlasted many of the others, proving that the Wolf Pack has true grit. While the difficult waxing conditions and less-than-perfect skis on top of a challenging course caused some to drop out of the race after just the first lap, and others to slow down immensely, our boys persevered and pushed all the way through, leading to some great results on the day! Lutz led the guys team today with a strong 17th place finish, his second best classical result for the season, while Matty D. was just behind in the top 20, 19th place (while also winning the award for best headband), followed by Dom in 22nd, and Sam in 31st. Great job guys!!!
