I am sorry that this took so long to post. i forgot my camera cable at home... ok so it is an excuse but I guess the photos are still fun to look at so here is some from THE race at US National championships. 

Elias (it does not look too cold)

The best part about being this far north was the light was always good for Photos
This is at about 2:30 PM Vincent Caccamo

back in the lower 48...

After our journey from Anchorage to Aspen, through Seattle and Denver, we got some really nice days of skiing in before the races last weekend. The sun and Aspen was treating us pretty well in order to finish third on the Nordic side for the weekend (results can be found on the nevadawolfpack homepage). Here are some impressions from the training days as well as the Aspen city sprint on Saturday night. After 3 weeks on the road the winter break comes to an end today and school starts tomorrow (on Chelsea's Birthday... happy Birthday Chelsea) again. We'll return to action in about 3 weeks for more College racing in Winter Park, CO.
